Spencer Dinwiddie is Balling in Dallas

|

The most important attribute in the NBA is availability. Former Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis did not have that. His partnership with Luka Doncic was supposed to form one of the league’s top duos, but it never quite panned out. For that reason, Dallas traded Porzingis to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Spencer Dinwiddie and Davis Bertans. At first, the trade […] READ MORE

|

The Dallas Mavericks and Washington Wizards made sure the James Harden deal wasn’t the only blockbuster of the NBA trade deadline.
