  • The Dallas Mavericks have traded Boban Marjanovic, among others, to Houston
  • While Dallas lands a scoring threat in Christian Wood, fans are sad to see the split of Boban and Luka Doncic
  • The NBA world is reacting to the news on social media

One of the best friendships on the basketball court has now split.

Boban Marjanovic, along with Trey Burke, Sterling Brown, and Marquese Chriss, has been traded to the Houston Rockets in exchange for center Christian Wood. The Rockets also picked up the 26th pick in the upcoming NBA Draft in the blockbuster deal.

Wood provides the Mavs with a legitimate scoring threat down low. The big man averaged 18 points a night while adding 10 boards a game in the 2021 season. This, after notching 21 points a game in 2020. He could help form a potent high-low tag team with Luka Doncic.

While the move signifies that Dallas is serious about improving a roster that just got to the Western Conference Finals, it’s also splitting up the duo of Boban and Luka.

The two have been entertaining to watch over the years, not necessarily for their play on the court, but for their friendship outside of basketball.

Now, they’ll play in different Texas venues, no longer lining up for the same squad. The split has the NBA world reacting on social media.
