5. Tobias Harris

Tobias Harris is another player on an expiring contract that the Dallas Mavericks could target at the trade deadline if things aren't going Dallas' way. Due to his massive contract, Harris seems to have been heavily scrutinized over the years.

He has quietly flown beneath the radar and he is still one of the more consistent role players in the Eastern Conference. Last season for Philadelphia, Harris averaged 14.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game.

He also shot 38.9 percent from downtown on 4.4 attempts per game. Adding Harris to this Mavericks roster would help solve the seeming logjam that Dallas has at the wing position, and allow Josh Green to play shooting guard, a position he fits more seamlessly in.

Harris would give Dallas another floor spacer, and his ability to create his own shot would be heavily valued in Dallas. The Mavs haven't had a wing that can create for himself consistently in a long while, and Harris' balanced offensive game would be a nice fit.

He can knock down shots off the catch, move without the ball, and score at all three levels. Harris isn't known for his defense, but he has the size and frame to guard both small and power forwards. His defense has slowly improved over the years, and he had the role of containing Jayson Tatum in the 2023 NBA Playoffs.
