Dallas Mavericks: Ranking each player from least to most tradable
Only trading these Dallas Mavericks for a superstar
The Mavericks are holding on to these two players unless they could get a superstar in return. Other teams may not value their contributions, but the Mavs know losing each man would be a significant blow to their team.
13. Dorian Finney-Smith
Dorian Finney-Smith only averages 9.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, but his defensive efforts place him in this category. He is tasked with guarding the opposition’s best scorer on a nightly basis as the Mavs best perimeter defender.
Some fans may argue his place on the list, but Finney-Smith also has a team-friendly contract. He is locked in at $4 million for each of the next two seasons following 2019-2020. His defense and contract make him a key piece for the Mavericks.
12. Maxi Kleber
Just like Finney-Smith, Maxi Kleber has shown that he is a defensive menace. He averages 1.2 blocks per game which ranks 20th in the NBA.
Kleber has made massive improvements this season. He jumped up to 9.2 points and 5.5 rebounds per game while shooting 37.4 percent from 3-point range. He is a proven stretch big and potentially the permanent starter alongside Porzingis in the Mavs frontcourt.
