6. Moses Moody

It was reported a few weeks ago that Golden State Warriors guard Moses Moody could be frustrated with his role on the Warriors. It was also reported that the only player who is untouchable in trade talks is Stephen Curry.

Should the Dallas Mavericks make a move for Moody if the Warriors do end up wanting to move him?

He would be a great pickup, and his age combined with his skills are the perfect match for Dallas. The Mavs seem to covet players who are young and also ready to contribute right now, and Moody fits that mold.

This season for the Warriors, Moody is averaging 8.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 0.7 steals per game while shooting 48.2 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from the field. He is a great all-around two-guard who would be a great piece for Dallas' bench.

Moody has been an average shooter this season, but his defensive potential and upside as a scorer are intriguing. He can be trusted in some isolation situations, and his massive 7-foot-1 wingspan makes him very switchable.

I don't see Dallas making a trade centered around Moody, but he would be a great throw-in if Dallas were to pursue Jonathan Kuminga or Andrew Wiggins.
