10. Eligible to be traded: Josh Green

The Dallas Mavericks re-signed Josh Green to a three-year, $41 million extension this offseason, and every fan couldn't wait to see his potential fourth-year jump. He had gotten better every season before, and fans were thrilled that Dallas got him on such a bargain contract.

Through the first quarter of the season, Green has been a shell of his best form that he flashed last season and is now out with an elbow injury. This injury couldn't have come at a worse time for Green, and now Dallas is crossing their fingers that he has a quick recovery and can return to the player he once was.

This season for Dallas, Green is averaging 6.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 0.9 steals per game while shooting 42.2 percent from the floor and 36.5 percent from downtown. These numbers aren't awful, but you can tell Green isn't playing as well as he has in the past by just watching him.

In some games he looks extremely confident offensively, and in others, he is afraid to let it fly. So much of Green's game is based on his offensive aggressiveness, and when he doesn't believe in himself, he doesn't play well.

If Green can regain his confidence after he returns from injury, Mavs fans would be thrilled as he brings great energy and hustle on the defensive floor, but it wouldn't be a shock to many if he is moved before the deadline.
