The idea of Bradley Beal somehow, someway, making his way onto the Dallas Mavericks roster is something we at DallasBasketball.com have been brainstorming for multiple years now.
Here. Google it.
This year, however, could be the year where the Washington Wizards actually pull the trigger on a Beal trade.
When and if that time does come, what exactly would the Mavs have to give up in order to get Beal to Dallas? Would Kristaps Porzingis have to be included to even get the Wizards' attention? Would Beal himself have to list the Mavs as his preferred destination to give such a move a realistic shot? We discuss every angle of the Mavs-Beal topic on this week's episode of the Mavs Step Back Podcast (starting at the 7:30 mark).
From there, Dalton Trigg and Matt Galatzan discuss a handful of other fun topics, including Porzingis' potential season debut on Wednesday night against the Charlotte Hornets and Luka Doncic winning the NBA's Western Conference Player of the Week award while averaging a 30-point triple-double in the Mavs' current three-game win streak.
The guys also spend over half an hour answering questions that listeners submitted to this week's mailbag. Topics from the mailbag include our favorite basketball nicknames of all-time, how the NBA is handling this Covid-crazy season so far, whether Doncic's good defense is here to stay, and much, much more!
