But a source close to the Mavs’ situation says Dallas is continuing to be open to a trade-away of Matthews that could be labeled “special.” Isn’t Love, a five-time All-Star, “special” enough? Not to Dallas, for a simple reason: That $87-million “Plan Powder”-like mindset for next summer (details here) means that the ideal candidate in trade, the “special” candidate, would either be a young star (tough to get) or a player with just one year left on his deal. How important is the one-year-deal thinking? It’s part of the reason it’s the length of the contract provided Jordan.
Storyline: Wesley Matthews Trade?
The Mavs certainly believe in Matthews as a role-model leader, and of benefit to youngsters Dennis Smith Jr. and Luka Doncic in that way. They also believe that his versatility as a wing-type player is something they need more than additional bigs (with Jordan coming in and Dirk Nowitzki coming back, along with Harrison Barnes and Dwight Powell, to occupy most of the front-court minutes.)

Clippers not interested in Wesley Matthews

Marc Stein: The Clippers are resistant to taking Wes Matthews back in a trade for DeAndre Jordan, league sources say, which means Dallas must either present an alternative trade scenario L.A. accepts or try to sign Jordan in free agency if he indeed declines next season’s $24.1 million.
