Buddy Hield is talking about “finding another home” if he and the Kings can’t reach an agreement on an extension by Monday’s deadline. My ‘Mavs potential trade’ senses are tingling a little bit...

Hield is really the perfect fit, you just have to wonder what it would take to make it happen. Would you be willing to give up Delon or Brunson? Would they take an expiring deal like Courtney Lee off of your hands to help clear space? Very interesting situation.

You also have to consider the cap situation going forward. I like Hield, but with Luka’s extension coming up in the not-so-distant future, are we sure we want everything tied up in a core of Luka/KP/Hield?

I think a trade for Hield would be similar to the KP trade last year. You do so with the intention of paying him big money. As much as I like the guy, I’m content with cheaper options like Seth Curry until the Mavs (hopefully...) get a crack at Giannis in 2021. Might strike out like most do with the mega-stars, but it’s worth a shot.

Delon or Brunson for Hield? Absolutely you give those guys up for a player like Hield. The question is would the Kings want them. Would they want Delon or Brunson when they already have Fox and Cory Joseph? The Kings are trying to win now. The Mavs don’t have the assets to satisfy what the Kings would want.

Is this guy serious? Does anyone think he’s really worth $20+ mil/yr? It’s easy to demand all that money if all he does is chunk up shot after shot and not do anything else.

Always wondered why more people don't speculate a Hield acquisiton when they're focused on these crazy Beal trades. Hield probably gives you 90% of Beal for 60-70% of the trade acquisition price.

If completing 43% of your 3 point attempts is "chunking up shots" I pray to God Dallas can unearth about 2 or 3 more chunkers, because the entire modern NBA is looking for these chunkers.

Yes. 21/5/3 while shooting 43% from deep seems like something you'd want to add to Luka and KP. His value money-wise can be debated for sure, but he's a really good player. Thing is, SAC is kind of backed into a corner now, given the HB deal over the summer. I doubt they expected both Bogdanovic and Hield to decline their extension offers and demand a lot more.

I mean, SAC should have thought about all of this before hand, but Kings gonna Kings. I don't see any other good options for them other than to just pay Hield, but you just never know with those guys.

I hope we aren't carrying plan powder over into the next decade. Giannis isn't going anywhere the Bucks will make sure of that.

Yeah, If you're not a premiere free agent destination, you acquire high end talent by exploiting the dumb teams in trades. The only reason why a player like Hield is available is because the Kings are the Kings. Just like the only way you can get a KP unicorn is because it's the Knicks.

This is sound analysis. I like Hield but, for what it would have cost Dallas upfront/long term, I can't see it. He's a tick of two below what we would need at that cost.

Don't disagree but that 10% difference is an ocean. You know I am very pro-Beal. I'll own that.

No. 1-5

I’d like to get McDermott back, he’d definitely help space the floor

What about Sabonis? I’d like to get him and McDermott, but it sounds like Sabonis’s price is a steep

Not really seeing what we would have to offer for Hield. As Lebron once said "we top heavy as hell"
