3. Dorian Finney-Smith

It's well known that Dallas paid quite the opportunity cost by adding Kyrie Irving to this team, as Dorian Finney-Smith is having possibly the best season of his career thus far for the Brooklyn Nets. Finney-Smith is averaging 9.6 points and 4.7 rebounds per game on an average of 28.4 minutes per game this season whilst shooting nearly 41 percent from 3-point land.

Finney-Smith has been getting less minutes recently after a few really rough shooting performances at the beginning of December, but rest assure that the Nets' asking price for the 30-year-old forward is still really steep. Brooklyn is reportedly commanding two first-round picks for Finney-Smith ahead of the February 8 trade deadline, but that asking price could certainly go down if the Nets continue to spiral south of .500 and want to get off one of their many wings before the trade deadline

Dallas has already registered interest in retaining Finney-Smith's services, so it would be no surprise if they made a move for him given the glaring hole he left at the four spot. Dallas needs a lengthy and stout wing who is a capable rebounder next to Dereck Lively II in the frontcourt, and Finney-Smith could step in right away and fill that role seamlessly.

Finney-Smith is having his best shooting season of his career and knows Dallas' offensive system to a tee so he'd be a perfect fit, but there are two players on our list who could do even more for Dallas.
