According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski the Brooklyn Nets agreed to trade Kyrie Irving to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. The report said that the Mavs are sending Dorian Finney-Smith, Spencer Dinwiddie, an unprotected 2029 first-round pick and second-round picks in 2027 and 2029 to the Nets in exchange for Irving and Markieff Morris.

Many experts seem to believe Brooklyn will greatly benefit from the trade, so how does Kyrie heading to Dallas and sinking Mark Cuban's ship help the New York Knicks? In a cool article by Stefan Bondy of nydailynews.com, he explains how Dallas is sending its first-round draft pick to the Knicks in 2023. It is the final piece of the Kristaps Porzingis trade to Dallas in 2019.

As Bondy points out, if Kyrie Irving brings his briefcase full of distractions and dysfunction, the New York Knicks could end up with a better draft pick this year. The more chaos Irving creates for his new superstar teammate, Luka Doncic, the better player may end up with the Knicks in the draft.

Is it surprising that a team would want to bring Irving and all of his issues to town? ESPN says that Mavericks general manager Nico Harrison and Kyrie Irving have a history together with Nike. Mavericks coach Jason Kidd, who is certainly familiar with abandoning the Nets as a player, was in favor of the trade, as was All-NBA star Luka Doncic, who gave it a nod, a source told ESPN. Now the New York Knicks can only wait and hope that the Kyrie Irving that left Brooklyn stays true to himself in Dallas.
