The Brooklyn Nets appear ready to make a few roster adjustments before the start of the next NBA season. SNY’s Ian Begley published a story on Wednesday saying that numerous teams have approached the Nets about trading for Landry Shamet. Begley cited the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers among the teams with interest in Shamet. Teams reportedly are offering a first-round pick for the guard, though Dallas does not have a first-round pick in this draft.
Shamet is making $3.7 million next season and has a $5.5 million qualifying offer the following season. Shamet averaged 9.3 points per game on 38.7 percent 3-point shooting last season.
Shamet provides the shooting a few teams could use right now. He’s a 40-percent career 3-point shooter. He wasn’t great overall last season and largely fell out of favor with the Nets, but there have been stretches of his career when he’s looked like a really good up-and-coming player.
The Lakers have few assets to move to get Shamet outside of Kyle Kuzma and the 22nd pick in the NBA draft. The Mavericks would love to add Shamet and pair him with Luka Doncic. Nets would probably look to add size in return for Shamet.
