7. Jerami Grant

Cost to acquire him: Two first-round picks and salary filler

Due to the fact that Jerami Grant is in year one of a five-year, $160 million contract, teams could be scared to make a move for him, but he has consistently been a 20-points-per-game scorer over the last few seasons, and any contender would love.

This season for the Trail Blazers, Grant is averaging 21.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.8 blocks per game while shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 40.4 percent from downtown. He has a complete game offensively, and his defense is good enough to hold his own on the wing.

The Mavs remain one of the teams that have been linked to Grant, but they reportedly think his asking price could be too high. It doesn't seem likely that the Mavs will make a super risky trade during the season this year, and they may wait until the offseason to make a big move. This doesn't mean that Dallas won't make a move this year, but if they are going to make a blockbuster trade they could wait until the offseason.

Grant would be a great pickup for the Mavs, and would definitely make them contenders, but his big contract and high asking price could scare Dallas away.
