Dallas, who kicked the PO opportunity himself, is being investigated for tanking

The Dallas Mavericks, who put a large number of key players on the bench and kicked off their playoff hopes, are investigated by the Secretariat.

Local media, such as ‘AP’, quoted the secretariat’s announcement on the 9th (Korean time) and said that the secretariat would start an investigation into Mavericks.

Dallas, which is ranked 11th in the Western Conference, lost 112-115 against the Chicago Bulls held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas the previous day and was eliminated from the playoffs.

On this day, Dallas made a decision that left viewers scratching their heads. With the hope of reaching 10th place, which is given the right to participate in the seeding match, many of the main players were excluded.메이저사이트

Kyrie Irving, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Maxie Cleaver are out due to injuries, and even Josh Green and Christian Wood are out due to rest. Luka Doncic also only played in 12 minutes and 35 seconds.

The league secretariat said it would investigate the motivation behind the Mavericks’ selection of such players.

The ‘motivation’ that the secretariat said means tanking in a word. If Dallas stays 11th, it secures at least the 10th overall pick in this year’s draft. Here, you can also get the right to pick within the third pick through the draft lottery.

According to the AP, Dallas can keep it if it has the right to pick within the 10th pick in this draft, but if it goes below the 11th pick, it must be given to the New York Knicks. This is what was agreed upon in the process of acquiring Kristaps Porzingis through a trade in 2019.

“We are fighting for our lives and we are in this situation now,” said director Jason Kidd. The club decided to make a change and we have to follow it.”

Given several circumstances, it is inevitable to doubt that Dallas deliberately lost the game to protect its draft pick.

This NBA draft is receiving a lot of attention as French prospect Victor Wembañama is scheduled to participate. The NBA Secretariat announced early on that it was planning to strictly deal with tanking.
