2. Jae Crowder

Jae Crowder had a mysterious 2022-2023 season and will likely look to leave Milwaukee this summer.

The Bucks gave up five second-round picks to acquire Crowder from the Suns, but his role was always in question. His minutes fluctuated tremendously, and he was a non-factor during the playoffs. This is the last thing that Crowder wants as he knows he can be a contributor on a playoff team and is good enough to play consistent minutes.

The Dallas Mavericks could give him consistent minutes and would bring him in with open arms.

The Mavs are without a defensive stopper on the wing and need to add depth at that position. He can guard multiple positions and plays with a firey passion that Dallas needs.

Crowder would be a dream offseason addition for the Mavericks as they could likely bring him in on a team-friendly contract,, and he helps fix their problems. The 6'6 could play 40 minutes in a playoff game for the Mavs and guard the other team's best player.

Crowder would immediately be a top perimeter defender on the team as soon as he signs and was a fan favorite during his time in Dallas. He averaged 6.9 points per game on 43.5 percent shooting from three in Milwaukee. This was the best statistical 3-point shooting season of his career, and Dallas should be one of the teams to keep an eye on him as free agency approaches.
