Irving joined the Mavs in a trade from the Brooklyn Nets at the NBA’s trade deadline in February after months of controversy. He was suspended for eight games during the 2022-23 season for sharing a antisemitic film on social media before applying for an exchange outside of Brooklyn.
The Nets dumped Irving and Kevin Durant, marking the end of what became one of the NBA’s biggest disappointments after Brooklyn signed them both in 2019.
Dallas’ acquisition of Irving was a move for a deep playoff run, but things couldn’t have gone worse. Dallas was 8-12 when Irving played and missed the playoffs for the first time since the 2018-19 season.
