The Dallas Mavericks are about to make a spectacular signing in the NBA.

According to consistent US media reports on Sunday evening, the Texans are bringing top star Kyrie Irving to their leader Luka Doncic in a barter deal.

According to the media, 30-year-old Irving from the Brooklyn Nets had recently requested a change to another team, with the Mavericks Irving would play with German basketball player Maxi Kleber, among others.

Top star and scandal professional

The point guard has been playing for the Nets since 2019.

His greatest success was the 2016 championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers alongside LeBron James.

The switch period for trades in the NBA ends next Thursday.

Irving is considered one of the best players in the league, but has been repeatedly criticized off the field for his statements and actions in recent years.

At the end of 2022, Irving had distributed the film »Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America«, which was classified as anti-Semitic, via Twitter.

For this he was not only temporarily suspended by the Nets, but also lost an advertising contract with the sporting goods manufacturer Nike.

He later donated $500,000 to organizations working to end hate and intolerance in society and said, "I reject all forms of hate and oppression and stand strong with communities that are marginalized and impacted every day .«

Failed unvaccinated during pandemic

The Nets had to do without Irving's services for many games during the corona pandemic.

He had waived the vaccination required by the NBA regulations at the time and therefore missed large parts of the preseason.

The Mavericks are expected to trade Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith and future draft talent choices, the AP and ESPN reported.

In return, the former team of legend Dirk Nowitzki should also receive Markieff Morris in addition to Irving.
