    A Mavs Trade For Ben Simmons: Would It Work?

    On this episode, Dalton Trigg (@dalton_trigg) and Matt Galatzan (@matt_galatzan) are joined by their DallasBasketball.com colleague Grant Afseth to discuss the Ben Simmons saga, and whether or not trading Kristaps Porzingis to Philly for him would make sense. Overall talent and potential is one thing, but Simmons' fit, especially when it comes to being paired with Luka Doncic, specifically, would likely depend on how open Simmons would be to playing a role that doesn't involve being a full-time point guard. From there, the guys give their takes on if they think John Wall should be on the Mavs' buyout watch and Doncic potentially taking yet another big leap in Year 4. Thanks for listening!
