3. Greg Brown III

Greg Brown III could be the player to grab the Dallas Mavericks' final two-way spot, and he will be looking to make a massive impact at training camp.

Brown III was drafted with the No. 43 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft but hasn't panned out since being in the league. In two seasons for the Portland Trailblazers, Brown III averaged 4.0 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game. Last season, he spent most of the season in the G League, and now he'll have the chance to prove that he deserves to be on an NBA roster.

Brown III is known for his athleticism and supreme dunking ability, but he'll need to prove much more if he wants to snag that final two-way spot. Standing at 6-foot-9, Brown III has solid size for a forward, but his struggles as a shooter limit him from being a consistent wing at this point.

He has fit in more at the power forward spot, being a dump-off option and lob threat. Brown III is a highlight reel waiting to happen, and he is fearless when attacking the rim.

Brown III has all of the intangibles to be a rotation piece in the NBA, but his game is just a bit raw. Hopefully he can take strides as a defender and shooter and eventually turn into a rotation player for Dallas.
