9. Andrew Wiggins

Wednesday was a big day for Dallas Mavericks news, as Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports reported that the Mavs have been linked to Andrew Wiggins, Dorian Finney-Smith, and P.J. Washington.

Washington is someone who Mavs fans have wanted for months and Finney-Smith is still a fan favorite in Dallas, but someone like Wiggins provides the Mavs with a difficult decision.

At his best, Wiggins is a 3-and-D wing who can score from all three levels and is crucial for your team on both ends of the floor. He can even be considered an X-factor when he is playing at a high level.

At his worst, Wiggins is an inefficient wing who sometimes looks unengaged and is on an awful contract.

Wiggins is the latter of the two options this season, and the Mavs must decide if taking on his massive contract is worth it. He is set to make $109 million over the next four seasons, and if he continues to play like he has this season, trading for him could be a mistake.

This season for the Warriors, Wiggins is averaging 11.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.4 blocks per game. His defensive impact has not been as big and his inefficiency has plummeted.

If Wiggins can return to his peak form, he'd be a massive addition for Dallas. If not, the Mavs could be in trouble due to all the locked-up money.
