1. Deni Avdija

Cost to acquire him: First-round pick or second-round picks, young talent, matching salary

The third Washington Wizards player on this list is Deni Avdija, and although many Dallas Mavericks fans don't realize it, they have shown interest in him at some point this season.

This season for the Wizards, Avdija is averaging 12.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 0.9 steals per game while shooting 50.1 percent from the floor and 37.8 percent from downtown. Avdija is having the best season of his career, and his game would be a great fit in Dallas.

He is a good scorer off the dribble, and his 3-point stroke is smooth. The Mavs are reportedly looking for a forward with some size who can handle the ball, and that's exactly what Avdija is. The Wizards sometimes use him as a ball handler in the pick and roll, and his basketball IQ is through the roof.

Avdija can be used as a point forward when needed and he is a great passer for his position. He plays the game the right way and would be a future piece to build around in Dallas.

For all the latest news and rumors on the Dallas Mavericks as the trade deadline quickly approaches, stay tuned.
