Mavericks trade Devin Harris in three-team deal for Doug McDermott

Mavs acquire Doug Mc Dermott and second-round pick in three-team trade Doug McDermott: Traded to Dallas

The Mavericks got Doug McDermott from the Knicks and the Nuggets got Devin Harris from the Mavericks.

Let's take a look at why the Nuggets should not have pulled the trigger on this deal.

Emmanuel Mudiay #0 of the Denver Nuggets goes to the basket against the New York Knicks on October 30, 2017 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York.

The 2018 National Basketball Association trade deadline has been dominated by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who landed George Hill, Jordan Clarkson and Rodney Hood while shipping out Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Iman Shumpert, Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Channing Frye.

Mudiay, meanwhile, gets a fresh start in NY after another season in which he was in and out of the Nuggets' rotation.

Denver, though, kept more players than it dealt on a deadline day with mixed results. Mudiay was drafted by the Nuggets with the 7th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

McDermott, 6-8, 225, is averaging 7.2 points and 2.4 rebounds over 21.3 minutes in 55 games (one start) for NY this season.

Acquiring Harris, which was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, solidifies Denver's point-guard pecking order behind a flourishing Jamal Murray.

Wojnarowski added that the trade also involved a swapping of second-round picks between the Nuggets and the Knicks. The Democratic Republic of Congo-native is averaging 8.5 points, 2.9 assists and 2.2 rebounds over 17.9 minutes in 42 games this season.

Even though Mudiay has yet to make an impact in the N.B.A., this is a low-risk trade for the Knicks because he arrives on a relatively cheap rookie contract that will pay him $3.4 million this season and $4.3 million next year.

As is the case with McDermott, Mudiay gets a chance to rediscover his potential on a new team.
