DALLAS — "Wow!" is certainly one way to put it.
The Dallas Mavericks on Sunday reportedly traded for Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving, leading to mixed reaction from the sports world. The Mavs made the trade official on Monday.
The Nets will receive Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, a 2029 first-round pick and two future second-round picks from Dallas. The Mavs will also reportedly receive Nets forward Markieff Morris in the trade.
Irving has been at the center of controversy throughout his NBA career. Most recently, he tweeted a link to antisemitic material, which led to his suspension earlier this season.
No matter how NBA players and fans feel about Irving, the trade was truly a shock to many.
Dinwiddie was one of the first to react to the news as he returns to Brooklyn.
"When @ShamsCharania says it’s time to go you pack your bags. Plus Elijah said he wanted to go back home," Dinwiddie said in his tweet.
"To the #mffl like I’ve always said y’all and BKN have made my NBA experience. Nothing but immaculate vibes as @tpinsonn would say," Dinwiddie added in a second tweet.
