2. Josh Green

When the Dallas Mavericks extended Josh Green on a three-year deal, fans were ecstatic as it was only for $41 million.

After 14 games, Green has underperformed tremendously, and some are worried that the extension could have been a massive waste of money. Green is averaging 6.7 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.0 steals per game.

Green's game still hasn't taken the fourth-year jump that everyone expected, and fans have every right to be a little worried about his development. He doesn't look confident with the ball in his hands, and his 3-point shooting has taken a dip. Green has also hesitated to let it fly even when wide open.

These are not great signs, especially considering the fact that Green needs confidence to excel, and he hasn't been able to contribute at the level that Dallas needs him to.

If Green doesn't step his game up he could be someone that ends up on the trading block, and at this point, it doesn't look like it would be too big of a loss. Derrick Jones Jr. has easily outplayed him and has been a better shooter and defender.

Green's potential is still there and his contract extension could still end up being a good move, but his performance to start the year has been less than ideal.
