NBA Trade Rumors: Mavs rejected clubs interested in Dereck Lively while keeping an eye on Jerami Grant

Today’s NBA Trade News focuses on some NBA trade rumors that reveal new information regarding the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs have reportedly rejected offers for their player Dereck Lively.

Other rumors suggest that they are keeping an eye on Blazers player Jerami Grant. With the trade deadline approaching, more rumors are starting to surface, so let us take a look at the ones surrounding the Mavs for now.

Mavericks turned down NBA teams interested in Dereck Lively

As per NBA trade rumors, the Dallas Mavericks have turned down many offers for their player Dereck Lively. As per senior NBA insider Mike Michael Scotto from HoopsHype, it has been reported that NBA teams have reached out to the Mavs, expressing their interest in Dereck Lively. However, their inquiries are consistently rejected by the Mavs.

Lively is a young talent for the Mavs who was traded to the Mavs by the Oklahoma City Thunder after the latter team drafted the youngster as the twelfth overall pick in the 2023 NBA draft. Dereck has shown signs of great potential, as he scored 16 points and collected 10 rebounds in his debut match against the San Antonio Spurs. It is understandable why the Mavs are not willing to trade the youngster, as he will be a great pillar for the team in the future after maturing in the league. On the contrary, veteran Pascal Siakam was recently traded to the Indiana Pacers.

Mavericks keeping an eye on Jerami Grant

Another NBA trade rumor has suggested that the Dallas Mavericks have their eyes on Blazers player Jerami Grant. HoopsHype’s NBA insider Michael Scotto has revealed that the Mavs are keeping tabs on Grant. He said, “The Mavericks have kept tabs on Jerami Grant in Portland.” He also revealed that the Mavs are thinking of an offer proposal to present to the Blazers asking for Grant in exchange.

The offer could include some combination of Jaden Hardy, Josh Green, and Grant Williams and some draft compensations in exchange for the forward. Jerami would be a good fit for the Mavs, playing alongside their star players Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. He would bring a much-needed front-court upgrade to the Mavs squad and also provide squad depth that would help the Mavs head coach in deciding efficient rotations.
