But it appears Finney-Smith would not come cheaply.
Charania cited opposing executives in writing that Dallas has set “an incredibly high price threshold for teams reaching out about Finney-Smith.”
Finney-Smith, 29, could be the main chip if the Mavs are to pull off a deal to land an All-Star type of player ahead of the Feb. 9 trade deadline, Charania added.
The Knicks and Heat are others who are believed to have an interest, sources told Hoops Wire.
Finney-Smith is 6-foot-7 and averaging 8.9 points and 4.5 rebounds in 37 games, shooting 41 percent from the field and 35 percent on 3-pointers. He signed a four-year contract extension worth $55 million last season. The deal includes a player option in 2025-26.
“In seven seasons with the Mavericks, Finney-Smith has established himself as a critical two-way wing, well-liked teammate and important for the team’s culture, including being a favorite of MVP candidate Luka Doncic,” Charania wrote.
Sources: The Suns have given permission to the Bucks to meet with Jae Crowder ahead of trade deadline.
