Trade Deadline Updates: Mavericks Engage in Talks for P.J. Washington and Kyle Kuzma

With the NBA trade deadline looming just six hours away, negotiations between team management are intensifying. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Dallas Mavericks and Charlotte Hornets are actively engaging in trade discussions centered around versatile forward P.J. Washington.

Wojnarowski revealed on ESPN late Wednesday night that talks between the two teams have been ongoing throughout the day and into the evening, indicating that there is still more dialogue to be had. The focus of these discussions appears to be primarily on draft compensation.

Additionally, Wojnarowski mentioned that the Mavericks were also in talks with the Washington Wizards regarding Kyle Kuzma, who has emerged as Dallas’ primary target. However, these negotiations hit a roadblock, likely due to the Wizards’ steep asking price for Kuzma. If the Mavericks can secure a trade for Washington without having to part ways with Josh Green or their 2027 first-round pick, it would represent a significant victory for the franchise moving forward.

Washington has been averaging 13.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game this season, with shooting percentages of 44.6 percent from the field and 32.4 percent from beyond the arc. Playing alongside stars like Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving in Dallas would likely lead to an increase in these numbers. Washington has demonstrated his scoring ability throughout the season, with nine games where he scored 20 points or more, including a standout performance of 43 points against the Utah Jazz on Jan. 27.

Fans are encouraged to stay tuned to DallasBasketball.com for further updates as the trade deadline approaches.
