8. Dorian Finney-Smith

Brooklyn Nets wing Dorian Finney-Smith is more of a wing than he is a power forward, but due to the fact that he has been playing plenty of power forward this season, he lands on this list.

Finney-Smith is someone who Dallas has been in trade rumors for already, and it's clear he'd like to eventually return to playing for the Dallas Mavericks. He spent the first six and a half years of his career in Dallas, and he turned into one of the best all-around 3-and-D wings in the NBA.

He has flourished in his role for his entire career, and him returning to Dallas is a move that would make everyone happy, including Luka Doncic. Luka and Finney-Smith still have a close relationship, and Finney-Smith was known as one of his best friends while he was on the team.

Reuniting Luka and Finney-Smith would be a move that could help the Mavs turn into NBA Finals contenders, but they may need one more piece along with Finney-Smith.

This season for the Nets, Finney-Smith is averaging 9.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game while shooting 41.1 percent from downtown. Finney-Smith is quietly having a career year in Brooklyn, and maybe the Mavs could intrigue the Nets enough to give him up if they ship them some young assets or draft capital.
