Last night, the Dallas Mavericks' four-game winning streak snapped with a loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Dallas has been able to take care of business recently, with their defense improving since their three-game losing streak. That was some of the worst defense that Dallas played all season, but now they are starting to get back on track even after a tough loss last night.

Dallas' offense gives fans a reason to believe that they can hang with anyone, and Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving's dominance as a duo can't be overlooked.

5 Dallas Mavericks at risk of being traded this summer

Regardless of how far the Mavs make it in the playoffs, there could be some big changes coming this summer. Nico Harrison is always looking for ways that he can improve the roster around Luka, and the trade market is one way that he can do that.

The Mavs have made six trades over the last three summers, and they will undoubtedly want to get better this summer.

Here are six Dallas Mavericks players who are at risk of getting traded this summer.

6. Jaden Hardy

Despite being a fan favorite and being a dynamic scorer, Dallas Mavericks guard Jaden Hardy is someone who could get traded this summer.

Hardy played his best stretch of basketball about a month ago, and he still hasn't been in Jason Kidd's rotation lately (until Thursday night against Oklahoma City). This season for Dallas, Hardy is averaging 7.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 0.3 steals per game while shooting 41.1 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from downtown.

Hardy is one of the best off-the-catch shooters on the team, but if Kidd doesn't play him, why should they keep him? He is set to become a restricted free agent next summer and has the skill to be the sixth man for a team.

Hardy will likely be most appealing to teams that are rebuilding, but his shooting and scoring could intrigue teams. I could see him blossoming into a Sixth Man of the Year candidate one day, but if he wants to do that in Dallas, Kidd has to give him a chance.

If not, he could do that elsewhere.
