The Mavericks recruited heavy this Wednesday night, finding an agreement with the Rockets for Christian Wood. Nevertheless, we had to send no less than 4 players in exchange, which means that there are places available in the roster. According to Marc Stein, a first player is already almost guaranteed to have his place, which will please the supporters.
Dallas has never hidden its ambition for a few months: to do everything to help Luka Doncic win a title. But for that, and this was seen against the Warriors in the conference final, you need support for the Slovenian, with players capable of making the difference on the floor. The message was received by the front office, which made a first trade to recruit Christian Wood, from Houston. In exchange ? 4 players, and a pick from the next draft.
The player guaranteed to stay in Dallas next year!
It’s quite an interesting deal, especially since Wood can be a real useful player in attack. Its main flaw? His defense, which he will have to improve if he does not want to penalize his new team too much. Whatever happens, there are now places available for the Mavericks, who will therefore have to recruit in the coming weeks. Good news for Théo Pinson, who should stay in Texas.
Theo Pinson will now be strongly expected to stay in Dallas after the Mavericks complete the Christian Wood trade and open up some unforeseen roster room, league sources say.

Theo Pinson should now stay in Dallas after the Mavericks completed the Christian Wood trade, which opens several places.
Chaffinch on the floor? It’s not much, but he’s an energetic player who makes a difference in the dressing room. A contribution that Dallas wishes to keep, to the point of offering him a new contract.
He is not the most important player, especially on the floor, but Pinson stood out in the playoffs with his energy on the bench. He even did controversy after a gesture on Steph Currywhich also cost Dallas dearly.

Cohesion is important
Theo is perfect 12th man off the bench. He’s great in the locker room and not going to bitch about not playing. He’s worth every penny for chemistry he brings this team

Theo is perfect as the 12th man on the bench. He is good for the locker room and is not going to complain about not playing. He is worth every penny for the cohesion he brings to the team.
Théo Pinson should finally stay in Dallas, especially given all the places available for next season. Good news for the player, but also the Mavericks, who are counting on him. Be careful, however, of the behavior, because the NBA will not laugh at the next sanction.
