12. Jalen McDaniels

Jalen McDaniels is the brother of Jaden McDaniels of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and he is someone who could be on the move over the next month as he has been a disappointment in his first season playing for the Toronto Raptors.

McDaniels is averaging 2.6 points, 1.1 rebounds, 0.6 assists, and 0.3 steals per game while shooting 30.6 percent from the field and 18.6 percent from downtown. He has been struggling tremendously this season, but maybe a change of scenery could do the trick for him.

McDaniels is someone who the Mavs could play at both the power forward and small forward spot, and his combination of length, quickness, and size allows him to be a switchable defender. The Mavs need more big wings, and that is exactly what McDaniels is.

Offensively, McDaniels isn't someone who can go create his own shot, but his ability to score in transition is solid. His defense oftentimes leads to his offense, and he could be a good bench piece in Dallas.

McDaniels wouldn't be someone who turns the Mavs into contenders, but he could be someone Dallas pushes to acquire if they were to land Pascal Siakam in a trade. He would be the cherry on top in such a trade, and would help the Mavs replace the depth that they would lose in the trade.
