According to NBA insider Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports, the Dallas Mavericks are interested in trading for Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins and Charlotte Hornets forward PJ Washington.

The Mavericks are no longer pursuing Brooklyn Nets forward Dorian Finney-Smith and Hornets forward Miles Bridges.

“Dallas is definitely looking at power forwards and I’ve been told Dorian Finney-Smith is no longer someone they’re considering there,” Fischer said on the Ball Don’t Lie podcast. “I’ve been told Miles Bridges is no longer someone they’re considering there, but Andrew Wiggins, PJ Washington, those are two names I’m confident in.”

Wiggins is averaging 12.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.5 blocks this season while shooting 43.7% from the field, 31.1% from beyond the arc and 71.7% from the free-throw line. He’s making $24.3 million.

Meanwhile, Washington is averaging 13.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks while shooting 45.2% overall, 33.1% from 3 and 72.2% from the foul line. He’s making $16.8 million.

The Mavericks are 27-23. They are in eighth place in the Western Conference standings. Newcomer Grant Williams has been a disappointment, so much so that Dallas is open to trading him to upgrade at the forward spot.

Wiggins has career averages of 18.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 blocks with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Warriors. Golden State is open to trading the NBA champion since he’s averaging a career-low in points this season.

Washington, meanwhile, holds career averages of 13.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.0 blocks with the Hornets. Everyone on Charlotte’s roster except for LaMelo Ball, Brandon Miller and Mark Williams is available in trade talks.
