1. Greg Brown III

The best fit that could help the Dallas Mavericks most of anyone on this list right now is Greg Brown III.

Brown III is the only player on this list that hasn't played in a single game for Dallas this season, but he has clearly outshined his teammates in the G League. This season for the Texas Legends, Brown III is averaging 19.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 4.7 blocks per game while shooting 62.3 percent from the field and 50 percent from downtown.

These are phenomenal numbers to start the year, and Brown III's jumper is finally coming along. His lack of shooting held him back during his first two seasons, but he could be someone that Dallas looks to if they need some more rim protection.

Although Brown III has not appeared in a game for Dallas yet, he was available for their game against the Thunder on Saturday. With Maxi Kleber's toe injury, Dallas could use Brown III's skills. They need someone who can bring energy off the bench and hustle for boards, and Brown III could do that.

His defensive versatility should at least earn him some minutes, and he could prove that he belongs in the rotation. Dallas' defense continues to struggle and Brown III could help them get back on track on that end of the floor.

He is also a great lob threat and one of the most athletic players on the team.

Dallas' next game is on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz.

For all the latest on A.J. Lawson, Dexter Dennis, Olivier-Maxence Prosper, Greg Brown III, and the Dallas Mavericks this season, stay tuned.
