4. Jeff Green

Throughout the course of his career, Jeff Green has taken on many roles.

Early on, he was a top option. He was one of the primary scorers in the early Kevin Durant-led Oklahoma City Thunder teams, and when he made his way to the Boston Celtics, he was the top scoring option on a couple of bottom-tier squads.

As he entered the middle portion of his career, he was one of the most reliable role players in the business. His solid defense, underrated athleticism, and decent three-point stroke made him a hot commodity.

Now, he’s a great veteran to have on the bench. He’s been thriving with the Denver Nuggets for the past couple of seasons, playing a big chunk of minutes off the bench at the age of 36 years old.

By the time next season rolls around, Green will probably take another step back in the rotation, but he’s an unrestricted free agent this summer. Dallas should absolutely look to steal him from Denver.

With how big of a role Green played for them this past season, the Nuggets will almost definitely look to bring him back, especially if they win the championship, but the Mavericks could still get involved.

Having his presence on the bench would give Luka Doncic a great presence to look to as he attempts to navigate the league, as the 14-year veteran has no shortage of experience.
