3. Spencer Dinwiddie

It wouldn't have made any sense for the Dallas Mavericks to trade for Spencer Dinwiddie, but considering he was traded and bought out, he deserves a spot on this list. He was someone who the Mavs pursued on the buyout market, as they need a secondary creator.

Dinwiddie is someone who would have been perfect in Dallas, and he has already proved that during his tenure playing for the Mavs that ended just over a year ago, but he ended up signing with the Los Angeles Lakers. His reasoning for this decision was strange, to say the least.

Regardless of his decision, he is someone who Dallas could use. He has the ability to start or come off the bench and knows how to play next to Luka Doncic. Dinwiddie's ability to play on and off the ball would allow him to share the floor with Luka and or Kyrie Irving, or just lead the second unit by himself.

He has become an extremely underrated passer over the years, and his ability to light it up from downtown, facilitate, and attack the rim is excellent. Dinwiddie may not be as good of a defender as Dallas needs, but his offensive talent more than makes up for his weaknesses on that end of the floor.

Dinwiddie will become a free agent this summer, and maybe the Mavs will revisit talks with him then.
