What’s the buzz on Twitter?

So … Dallas tanked just to salary dump Davis Bertans? – 9:05 PM
Brian Geltzeiler @BGeltzNBA
Mavs taking Cason Wallace confuses me a little. Do they need another small guard? Unless they know something about Kyrie that we don’t…🤔 – 9:05 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Cason Wallace was my favorite guy in the 5-20 range and now he gets to play with SGA and GIddey? Defend with Dort? Love it. – 9:05 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
So there goes Cason Wallace
First guy in Heat 18 range (potentially) that gets drafted
Let’s see who else falls – 9:05 PM

More on this storyline

The Mavericks are considering options to move down from No. 10 into the middle of the first round, sources said, to pick up a veteran rotation piece to help support Luka Doncic and free agent-to-be Kyrie Irving. The Mavericks and Hawks, for example, discussed the idea of swapping Davis Bertans and the No. 15 pick for John Collins and the No. 10 pick, sources said, although those talks do not appear to have progressed at this time. -via Yahoo! Sports / June 15, 2023
League sources say the Atlanta Hawks have explored the idea of trading De’Andre Hunter with AJ Griffin needing more playing time.
 Any deal may affect this pick, but Cason Wallace would give the Hawks a different look from Trae Young and Dejounte Murray with his more controlled pace and defense. -via Bleacher Report / June 21, 2023
