Mavericks Notes: Bogut, Draft, Singh

Trade speculation has surrounded Andrew Bogut, but the big man doesn’t believe he will be traded before next week’s trade deadline, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News writes.  “That’s not a question for me to answer,” he said when asked if he thinks he’ll remain with the Mavs all season. “But I don’t think anything’s going to happen.”

Here’s more from Dallas:

  • Denver was able to land a quality center in exchange for a Jusuf Nurkic and a future first-round pick. Sefko believes (separate piece) that the Mavs should be able to land an even better haul for Bogut and one of their picks.
  • The Mavs will likely be looking for a point guard in the upcoming draft and the Dallas Morning News takes a look at Frank Ntilikina’s game. Chad Ford of ranks Ntilikina 11th among the prospects eligible for the 2017 draft.
  • Satnam Singh, who the Mavs selected with No. 52 overall pick in the 2015 draft, is trying to make it as a wrestler in the WWE, Sefko writes in a separate piece. Singh never got an opportunity to play for the NBA club, but he spent parts of the past two seasons with the team’s D-League affiliate.

    I’d truly love if the Celtics could swing Bogut. Wth rebounding being a big issue, that would really solve a hole on the team, arguably the only hole on the team right now.

    Who actually thought that the Nurkic trade was a good trade? They gave up a 22yr old center making like 2M AND a 1st round pick for a 26 yr old center with similar stats who they now have to PAY more $$ to just to stick around b/c he’s an RFA. That was a bad trade and was a head scratcher when the news came out. Bogut… is an injury prone center in the last year of his deal, unless you’re the Celtics in dire need of a big, he has no value.

      Yeah I’m not sure how anyone really sees the Nuggets as the winners of that trade. They dealt the player with more potential, who is on a better contract and still had to give up a pick. Great move by Portland though

  3. The mavs making a trade. No way. The only thing the mavs will do is, wait for free Agency . And strike out.
