Ranking the Dallas Mavericks from least to most valuable trade value: 9-7

9. Derrick Jones Jr.

Jones Jr. Is a player that could help the Mavericks at the trade deadline if things don’t work out between them. The Mavericks recently signed the former slam dunk championship winner to a one-year deal. Teams that aren't in playoff contention could value him as an expiring deal.

While Jones Jr. may not have a ton of trade value, his contract itself is valuable in the sense that teams would be able to waive him or let him walk at the end of the season without having to take on long term money.

8. Dante Exum

The Mavericks are giving Exum a second shot to prove himself he belongs in the NBA. He signed a one-year deal with them this season. Exum gives the Mavericks another ball handler to help move the ball up and down the court. He could actually play a pivotal role if there are any injuries that happen to guards.

I could also see the Mavericks offloading him at the deadline if there is another playoff team that needs a veteran guard for depth for the playoffs. The Mavericks could at least get a second-round draft pick back for him.

7. Grant Williams

The reason why Williams is probably not going to be moved is due to the deal that he just signed after being traded to Dallas. Maybe once it gets down to one or two years left on the deal, some teams could ask about him, but until then, he will be in a Mavericks uniform.

With his new four-year, $54 million dollar extension in hand, Williams will probably only be traded if the Mavericks look to add another superstar to put next to Doncic. He is a very skilled player that can play three different positions for the Mavericks in the lineup, but I don't see many teams asking about his availability at the deadline.
