4. Joe Ingles

He may be in the twilight years of his career, but Joe Ingles is the perfect player to help the Dallas Mavericks on both ends of the court. His veteran presence would give them a huge boost on and off the court.

Ingles spent a lot of this season injured, but upon his return to the court for the Milwaukee Bucks, he made a big-time impact and helped them climb to the number-one seed in the Eastern Conference.

Throughout his career, he’s made his money by playing hard-nosed defense and nailing 3-point shots. It almost won him a Sixth Man of the Year Award in the 2020-21 season, but his teammate, Jordan Clarkson, won it as he finished second.

By the time next season begins, Ingles will be 36 years old and entering the tenth season of his career. But while he may not be able to play 30 minutes a night anymore, he could still give the Mavericks a solid presence.

His 3-point shooting was still top-notch last season. In 46 appearances with the Bucks, he shot 40.9 percent from deep on 4.3 3-point attempts per game.

Plus, Ingles has made himself known as a low-key nuisance on the defensive end. Dallas could use a player like that.
