7. Pascal Siakam

The Toronto Raptors were taking calls for Pascal Siakam this summer, and the Dallas Mavericks were a team that called at some point. Although the interest was exploratory, Dallas and Toronto could revisit these talks at some point this season.

Siakam is one of the most underrated frontcourt players in the NBA, and he has been a force in the league for the past five years.

Last season, Siakam averaged 24.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game. He has one of the most diverse skillsets for a power forward in the NBA, and his fit in Dallas would be outstanding.

He is a great scorer in isolation and he has a deep bag of moves that he uses to score virtually whenever he wants. Having Siakam as Luka Doncic's running mate would be must-watch TV and the two would be a great fit together.

Siakam is on an expiring contract, so getting him to Dallas may require more than just Kyrie Irving, but the Raptors' situation with Siakam is something to keep an eye on. If they are selling at the trade deadline, he is one of the players that could get moved elsewhere.

Siakam would be a solid fit in Dallas' frontcourt next to Dereck Lively II as both players have solid length and can be interior presences on defense when needed.
