Bold Trade Proposal Lands Mavericks $45 Million Rebounding Champ

On August 30, Bleacher Report's Zach Buckley wrote a column titled "Realistic Trade Packages for Every NBA Team's Worst Contract."

 Buckley advocated that the Dallas Mavericks deal Richaun Holmes, Josh Green, and a 2025 second-round selection to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Clint Capela in the narrative.

"The Mavericks have surfaced in Capela trade talks, and while the Hawks might prefer using their center in a three-team swap bringing Pascal Siakam to town, a two-team deal between Atlanta and Dallas is the simplest path,"

"Because Capela may be slightly overpaid, the Hawks should not expect to make a fortune on the trade market."

Still, they'd receive a three-and-D wing with space to develop in Green, a future second from a team with doubts about its long-term prospects, and a serviceable backup big in Holmes.

 It would also allow Okongwu to eliminate the biggest impediment in front of him through addition by subtraction."

Last season, Capela averaged 12.0 points and 11.0 rebounds while shooting 65.3% from the floor for the Hawks.

In September 2021, he agreed to a two-year, $45.5 million deal with Atlanta.Capela, 29, will earn $20.6 million next season after starting his career with the Houston Rockets

and leading the league in rebounds per game during the 2020-21 season. 

 With the Rockets and Hawks, he averaged 12.4 points and 10.7 rebounds per game.
