The Brooklyn Nets superstar guard stunned the NBA world this week when it was revealed that he had officially requested a trade out of New York. The demand for an escape from the Empire State came after Irving’s representatives pushed for a contract extension so the seven-time All-Star could remain in Brooklyn long-term.

Kyrie Irving bringing his talents to Dallas is a massive acquisition for the Mavericks. The team is currently sitting in the sixth spot in the Western Conference and only two games over .500 with a record of 28-26. Losing star guard Jalen Brunson in free agency to the New York Knicks this summer was a tremendous hit to their roster, and it has shown in their play in 2022-2023.

While this move is far from a blockbuster, and it’s unlikely to spark the Lakers toward a playoff push, it does help balance the roster. But what exactly can LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the rest of the Lakers roster expect to get out of Hachimura?

While he entered the league as a talented, yet raw prospect needing to improve, Hachimura has largely been the same player he was when he was drafted four years ago.

Still, as is, Hachimura can chip in ten-plus points per game, and he has the ability to go off every now and then.
