3. Grant Williams
After being part of the Dallas Mavericks' biggest trade of the offseason with the Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs, forward Grant Williams has been someone who has been included in trade talks as the February 8 trade deadline quickly approaches.
Williams had a great start to the season as he became an elite 3-and-D piece for the Mavs, but his performance as of late has made fans question his long-term fit on the Mavs alongside Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.
This season for Dallas, Williams is averaging 8.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 0.6 blocks per game while shooting 37.6 percent from downtown. He has not been great as of late, and he could be someone who gets moved in the next 24 hours.
Teams still seem to be intrigued with Williams' defensive ability, but he is owed $53 million over the next four years and that contract could turn bad quickly if his play doesn't improve. I believe that Williams' play lately has been his floor, which could be a great sign as every shooter goes through slumps, but it must also be considered that he is under contract even after Luka and Kyrie's contracts expire.
It seems that he was expected to be a long-term fit in Dallas, but that could all change today or tomorrow.
