4. Expendable: Seth Curry

Even though Seth Curry is finally starting to play better for the Dallas Mavericks and has been a great piece off the bench, I don't think it's fair to say that Curry is someone that Dallas can't afford to trade, making him an expendable player.

This season for Dallas, Curry is averaging 4.4 points, 1..4 rebounds, 0.9 assists, and 0.6 steals per game while shooting 40 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from downtown. Curry has turned his extreme early-season struggles around recently as he has been handed a consistent role, but if Dallas ends up having to move him in a trade at the deadline, I don't think he should be a dealbreaker.

Curry was someone that seemingly every fan had massive expectations for entering the season, and due to Dallas' surplus of guards off the bench, he hasn't been able to fully display his abilities until the injury bug hit the Mavs over the last week or so.

If Dallas decides to keep Josh Green, Tim Hardaway Jr., and or Jaden Hardy, Curry should be moved. There aren't enough minutes to go around to all of them, and the Mavs wouldn't be considerably worse.

Curry could make me eat my words if he continues to play as well as he has over the last week, and only time will tell if he is a Maverick after the trade deadline passes.
