Done Deal: Jason Kidd Confirm Major Boost To Squad With The Signing Of 24 years-Old NBA Superstar

**Dallas Mavericks Officially Announce Trade with Detroit Pistons to Acquire Quentin Grimes**

Today marks the first day that NBA offseason signings and trades from the past few weeks can become official. Teams will now announce traded draft rights, player swaps, and sign-and-trades that took place during the negotiation window.

The Dallas Mavericks have officially announced their trade with the Detroit Pistons, sending Tim Hardaway Jr. and three second-round picks in exchange for Quentin Grimes. This trade also relieves around $12 million in salary for the Mavericks to use elsewhere. The second-round picks include a 2025 Toronto pick, a 2028 Miami Heat pick, and the least favorable pick in 2028 between the Charlotte Hornets and LA Clippers.


Grimes will don No. 5 with the Mavericks, a number previously worn by Tyler Dorsey and notably by head coach Jason Kidd in his first stint with the team, as well as former All-Star Josh Howard.

The Pistons had acquired Grimes as part of a trade that sent Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks to the New York Knicks at the trade deadline. Grimes played only six games for Detroit due to a lingering knee issue, but the Mavericks hope he can return to his previous form. With the Knicks, Grimes averaged 8.6 points per game while shooting 37.9% from three-point range, making him a valuable addition to the Mavericks as a strong defender.

The Mavericks may also announce the acquisitions of Klay Thompson and Naji Marshall today. There were rumors of expanding this trade to involve five teams and include Thompson, but it remained as initially reported.
