2. Eligible to be traded: Luka Doncic

The Dallas Mavericks have one of the most untouchable players in the league in Luka Doncic, but he is someone they could look to trade if they wanted to. This would likely never happen, as he has the potential to be one of the best players of all time, and Dallas would be out of their minds if they ever thought above moving him.

This season, we've seen the best version of Luka we've ever seen, and he is averaging 32.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 8.5 assists, and 1.3 steals per game while shooting 48.5 percent from the field. He dominates in every game he plays in, and he and Dereck Lively II have an excellent connection.

Doncic's elite play has made him one of the top MVP candidates in the league, and we could see him land his first MVP if he and the Mavs continue to win games. This award often goes to the best player on one of the best teams in the NBA, and Dallas staying as one of the top teams in the Western Conference could be crucial for his case.

Another key to Doncic's excellent season has been his improvements on defense. He seems much more engaged on that end of the floor and his improved conditioning has helped him turn into a respectable player on that end.
