8. OG Anunoby

OG Anunoby has become one of the most highly sought-after players in the NBA. His defensive capabilities make him one of the best defensive products on the court at all times, and he's always a threat to score on offense.

Anunoby quickly became one of the best wing defenders in the league. This 6-foot-7 forward with a 7-foot-2 wingspan uses every inch to deter offensive players from getting around him. That combined with his 232-pound frame makes him one of the most strong wings in the NBA.

It is still unlikely that the Mavericks have the draft capital to make such a massive trade, but if the Mavericks found any way to obtain OG, he would become an instant game-changer on both ends of the floor. Alongside Doncic, we would see the best version that we have ever seen out of OG.

The Toronto Raptors find themselves in a weird position because if they fall under expectations, they could be a huge fire sale for anyone of significance in Toronto. Anunoby would lead those talks for any team that's contending.

However unlikely it is for the Mavericks to acquire a player of OG's caliber, they should still take a chance. OG would become the best wing on the team since Shawn Marion, and he could be better than Marion ever was. His game is on the rise, and Dallas would have an elite big three of Anunoby, Luka Doncic, and Kyrie Irving.
