Dallas trade Isaiah Roby to OKC for Justin Patton; Patton to be released

Well, that was quick.

When Dwight Powell suffered his season-ending Achilles injury, it was seen evident that the Mavericks would be in the market for a back up big man. Though we didn’t expect a move this fast.

The Mavericks traded 2019 second round pick Isaiah Roby to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Justin Patton and cash considerations, first reported by The Athletic and Stadium’s Shams Charania.

Both Roby and Patton have spent most of their season in the G-League for their respective teams, the Texas Legends and OKC Blue.

In nine games with the Legends this season, Roby averaged 9.2 points and 7 rebounds but missed time due to a foot issue.

But press the breaks Mavs fans, don’t expect to see Patton in a Dallas uniform. First reported by The Athletic’s Tim Cato, Patton will be released to clear up a roster spot for the Mavericks, being that Patton’s contract is non-guaranteed.

This certainly increases speculation of who the Mavs will target to fill some of Powell’s production, whether that’s via free agency or another trade.

Stay tuned, MFFL’s.
