5. Jae Crowder

Jae Crowder is the second former Dallas Maverick to make this list, and I'm sure that every Mavs fan would welcome him back to Dallas with open arms.

This season for the Milwaukee Bucks, Crowder is averaging 8.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 0.8 steals per game while shooting 53.2 percent from the floor and 51.6 percent from downtown. He is having a bounce-back season after only playing in 18 games last year.

Crowder has already been successful for Dallas early in his career, and just like many players on this list, his ability to defend and stretch the floor off the bench would help the Mavs prepare for the playoffs.

Standing at 6-foot-6 with a 6-foot-9 wingspan and weighing 235 pounds, Crowder has the perfect frame to be a versatile defender. He has proved that time and time again throughout his career and his extremely high 3-point numbers to start the year are intriguing as well.

When Crowder's name has popped up in trade rumors in years past, the team's asking price for him has been high, but this year he is on an expiring contract. Playoff teams would love to add Crowder to their rosters down the stretch, and maybe Dallas can pull off a trade that brings Crowder back to DFW.
