8. Makes sense: Andrew Wiggins

Next up on the list is 28-year-old Andrew Wiggins. The 2022 All-Star could be a viable trade candidate for the Dallas Mavericks as they have been linked to him. He has the experience and skill set to help make a difference for the Mavs.

For example, Wiggins played a role in helping the Warriors win the 2022 NBA Championship. That same season, he made his first All-Star game. Not much has changed this season, as he continues to be a primary starter and scorer for Golden State.

He is an everyday player who can work both ends of the court. Offensively, Wiggins can create scoring opportunities by attacking the rim, shooting from mid-range, or even finding an open teammate. Over the past four games, he has also improved his 3-point shooting, as he has been knocking down 50 percent of his long-range shots.

On the other side of the ball, he isn't afraid to make it difficult for his opponents. Wiggins has tallied six steals and four blocks over the past three games. He is the exact 3-And-D wing Dallas may be looking for.

The nice part is adding Wiggins might not cost a lot. It's been mentioned that the Warriors are considering a player-for-player trade for Wiggins.

So, why not trade for another scorer who can get it done on both sides.
