4. Eligible to be traded: Jaden Hardy

Dallas Mavericks guard Jaden Hardy is coming off one of his best games in a while as he dropped 19 points against the Memphis Grizzlies, but he is someone that Dallas could move if they wanted to right now.

This season for Dallas, Hardy is averaging 7.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 0.3 steals per game while shooting 39.8 percent from the field. He has been much less efficient this season compared to last season, but his performance last night was promising.

He wasn't trying to do too much, and allowing the game to come to him turned Memphis into a "Hardy party." He was dialed in from downtown during the entire game and got back to shooting threes off the catch in Dallas' game against Memphis, which was his bread and butter last season.

Hardy is someone that teams were intrigued about over the offseason, and I could see Dallas moving him at the deadline if they had to. The Mavs already have plenty of guards, and Hardy's youth and upside could interest some teams.

Even if Dallas doesn't move Hardy, he will have to prove his value in the rotation over the next few weeks while the Mavs are without some of their key guards. His playing time isn't guaranteed, and he could go back to a limited role once everyone gets healthy.
