1. Taurean Prince

Another hard get that makes this list is Los Angeles Lakers forward Taurean Prince. Just like Cam Reddish, I don't see the Lakers trading him, but I think Dallas could really use a player like Prince.

This season for the Lakers, Prince is averaging 9.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 0.8 steals per game. He has been an elite role player for Los Angeles so far and has started in every game so far.

Prince is a 6-foot-7, 218-pound wing, and the Mavs could use this type of player to come off the bench. With Maxi Kleber being injured for a majority of the season, the Mavs have had to lean on Markieff Morris some when they need size off the bench.

Morris is an end-of-the-bench type of guy, and adding a better player that can take his minutes would benefit Dallas. That player will likely be Kleber once he returns, but he hasn't been great this season in his minutes either.

Prince would be a great floor spacer and defensive piece for Jason Kidd to throw into the mix, but acquiring him would be easier said than done. The Lakers would likely ask a heavy price for him via trade, and the Mavs may not have the assets to make this move possible.

Will the Dallas Mavericks make a move before the trade deadline, or will they roll with the roster they have now?

For all the latest on the Dallas Mavericks this season, stay tuned.
