Some around the league believe the Dallas Mavericks will consider trading for Goran Dragic should he end up going to Toronto in the Kyle Lowry sign-and-trade deal with Miami, as ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski mentioned. Dallas can be added as a third team in the Lowry sign-and-trade deal where they get Dragic. The Mavericks can also trade for Dragic separately with Toronto. Both avenues can happen using Dallas’ cap space.
Daniel Theis is expected to receive significant interest on the market from several teams, including the Rockets, Spurs, Raptors, Pistons, and Heat, league sources told HoopsHype. There’s a belief around the league that Theis can land a four-year deal around the full mid-level exception, as previously noted on HoopsHype.

There is some hoopla about DeMar DeRozan reuniting with Dwane Casey in Detroit, and I just don’t see it. He’ll command most, if not all, of the free cap space. And, additionally, DeRozan has insisted that he’d like to win. The fit just doesn’t make sense.
