5. Ayo Dosunmu

Ayo Dosunmu is one of the best free agents available, and the Mavs should take a chance on him.

Dosunmu averaged 8.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 0.8 steals per game last season for the Bulls. He also shot 49.3 percent from the field and started in 51 games.

Dosunmu may not be the big wing that Dallas is looking for, but he has the defensive ability and wingspan to play wing if needed. He is 6-foot-5, has a 6-foot-8 wingspan, is only 23 years old, and would give Dallas some depth off the bench.

Defensively, Dosunmu would fit what Dallas wants to do. He can guard one through three, is active in passing lanes, and has a good motor. Dosunmu is also an underrated shot blocker, as he has the wingspan to disrupt smaller guard's shots. He also has had some highlight reel-worthy blocks during his time in Chicago.

On offense, Dosunmu can act as the point guard or play off the ball. He has a good handle for his size and is shifty. Dosunmu is also a smart passer and makes the right play in transition. He is the type of player that Dallas would love as he can play either guard spot and even some minutes at wing.

Mavericks fans would love his hustle and energy, but Dallas doesn't need another guard. If the Mavs make a move soon that ships off Hardaway Jr., then this could be a move they can consider, but their guard room is crowded.

He would be a great fit, but there has to be enough minutes for everyone. Dosunmu is a solid player and should only be brought in if some moves happen that send some of Dallas' guards elsewhere.
