Dallas Mavericks Land Chris Paul In Blockbuster Trade Scenario

Chris Paul, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

Every NBA team has an offensive pecking order. Where a team’s players fit into that order will often play a vital role in determining that team’s success. 

For example, take the number one option on one of the league’s worst teams. They’re probably not a viable number one option – if they were, their team wouldn’t be one of the league’s worst.

On the other hand, they’re likely talented enough to be the second option on a contender: and if they’re your third option, you may have an NBA champion. 

Luka Doncic may be the best offensive player in the NBA. In all likelihood, he’d be the top option on any team in the league. On the other hand, we can no longer say the same about Chris Paul.

With that said, he’d make a fantastic second option behind Luka Doncic. Here’s a deal that has Paul landing on the Dallas Mavericks this offseason.
