How Trades Affect Players, Teams In NBA

During the Dallas Mavericks' 130-92 loss to the Golden State Warriors, veteran guard Tim Hardaway Jr. suffered a fracture of his fifth metatarsal when attempting a layup during the second quarter. 

Hardaway Jr., who signed a four-year, $75 million contract in the offseason, is one of the Mavericks' key leaders despite coming off the bench. He is expected to miss the full length of the Mavericks' remaining regular season based on the typical timetable for a return. 

“l talked to him,” Luka Doncic said. “He is disappointed.

"He was sad, so we tried to cheer him up. But when you get injured, it’s hard to be happy.”

Against the Warriors, Hardaway Jr. logged 10 minutes of action before suffering the injury. He finished the night was 10 points headlined by having made all five of his attempts from the free throw line.

With Hardaway Jr.'s performance coming to an early end, the Mavericks relied on a combination of Reggie Bullock, Josh Green, and Frank Ntilikina for bench minutes on the perimeter. Ntilikina, who hasn't been a regular member of the rotation, finished with 18 minutes.

“Tim is a great leader for us — always vocal, always extremely competitive, always wants to win,” Porzingis said. “Hopefully, even if he is not playing, he can be around the team as much as possible, be at the games as soon as he can and be that presence for us.

>‘Losing a Leader’: Doncic, Porzingis React To Hardaway Jr. Injury

Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis talk about how Tim Hardaway Jr.’s injury will affect the Dallas Mavericks.

By Grant Afseth5 hours ago5 hours ago

While Hardaway Jr. hasn't been converting from deep at his regular levels, there is still plenty of instances where his shooting gravity provides helpful benefit for Doncic and the Mavericks. When Hardaway Jr. either connects on a ball screens, sets a ghost screen, or is a back screener in an action like Spain pick-and-roll, his presence is key. 

div data-class-rules='[{"sizes":["0x0"],"classes":["m-advertisement--fluid-card"]}]' data-ad-group="in_content-1"">>

The Mavericks may need to look beyond the current roster for a few options if they are to truly replace a fair amount of the production they lose with Hardaway Jr. being sidelined. The $10.9 million trade exception could be a key avenue to doing so. 

A combo guard that can knock down catch-and-shoot jumpers and convert pull-ups at a strong clip could be the mold of what the team could seek. Finding one to fit within the trade exception may be a challenge, but, of course, that's not necessarily a requirement to use.

There already has been speculation about the Mavericks needing to trade either Jalen Brunson or Dorian Finney-Smith due to financial reasons. Now, there's more reason for a deal to be made. The buyout market could be another option to monitor, too.
