5. Maxi Kleber

When the Dallas Mavericks extended Maxi Kleber's contract at the end of the 2021-22 season, it seemed like a great move. Dallas was coming off a playoff run in which Kleber played a key role on both ends of the floor, and extending him on a three-year, $33 million deal seemed like a bargain at the time.

You can never have too many 3-and-D players with good size, and that's exactly what they got in Kleber. But after a hamstring tear and a dislocated toe, the Mavs may wish that they could go back in time and reverse giving Kleber the contract extension back in 2022.

This season for the Mavs, Kleber is averaging 4.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 0.7 blocks per game while shooting 41.1 percent from the field and 31.8 percent from downtown. This has been one of the least productive seasons of Kleber's career for the Mavs, and he may be someone who could get traded this summer.

He still has two years left on his contract, and if Dallas wants to go add another elite role player, they could look to include Kleber in the deal. $11 million annually is a very tradeable contract, and Kleber hasn't been playing well enough to be worth that.

Kleber does many of the little things that don't appear on the stat sheet for the Mavs, but it wouldn't be surprising if they look to move him this summer.
