1. Richaun Holmes
The Dallas Mavericks' trade for Richaun Holmes and the draft rights to Olivier-Maxence Prosper on 2023 NBA Draft night excited most Mavs fans, as Dallas had some frontcourt help and an underrated wing, but it seemed that Dallas was already trying to move one of those players right after they traded for him.
Dallas was in trade rumors on draft night surrounding Deandre Ayton, and Holmes was someone who was thrown into those talks. Holmes' role in Dallas has never been solidified since being with the team, and even after playing well in a couple of games, his minutes never increased much.
This season, Homes is averaging 2.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 0.4 blocks per game while shooting a career-low 45.5 percent from the field. He has not been someone who Dallas relies on consistently and was a healthy scratch from the Mavs' first seven games.
Due to the fact that he hasn't been playing much, even during Dereck Lively II's absence, I'd be surprised if he is a Maverick after the deadline. He has a tradeable salary and could be moved to a team that would utilize his skillset.
It doesn't seem like the Mavs have him in their long-term plans, and getting his contract off their books would be a big win.
Dallas' next game is tonight against the Houston Rockets.
For all the latest on Richaun Holmes and the Dallas Mavericks this season, stay tuned.
