The NBA trade deadline is less than 24 hours away, and the Dallas Mavericks are a team that has been in trade rumors as much as anyone.

The Mavs are looking to upgrade at the power forward position, and they have been linked to Kyle Kuzma and P.J. Washington. Dallas was also linked to Dorian Finney-Smith earlier this season, but they have not been in conversations for him as of late.

The biggest moves of the NBA season may have already happened, as the Toronto Raptors traded Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby earlier this season, but the Mavs are definitely a team to watch over the next day.

5 Dallas Mavericks players who could get traded in the next 24 hours

Dallas has looked great in their last two games as Kyrie Irving returned, but they may need to make at least one move to become NBA Finals contenders.

Here are five Dallas Mavericks players that could be traded over the next 24 hours.

5. Richaun Holmes

The Dallas Mavericks have been shopping Richaun Holmes ever since they traded for him on draft night as they tried to move him in a trade for Deandre Ayton later that night, but the deal fell through.

Holmes has not been a rotation piece for the Mavs for the entire season, and his large contract is not something that the Mavs seem to want on their books over the next two seasons. He is set to make almost $25 million over the next two seasons (assuming he opts into his player-option this summer) and the Mavs could use him as salary filler in a trade to upgrade their roster.

Dallas would almost certainly have to include draft capital or young talent to get Holmes off their books, as he doesn't provide much of an impact anymore, but his contract makes a ton of sense to move if Dallas is absorbing a big contract.

Holmes doesn't seem like he is in the Mavs' long-term plans, so don't be shocked if he is playing elsewhere to finish the season.
