3. Loser: Markieff Morris

Dallas re-signing Markieff Morris this summer was a move that puzzled some Dallas Mavericks fans, as he didn't do much after joining the squad through the Kyrie Irving trade. He wasn't receiving tons of playing time and he was battling some injuries, but it still seemed like he wouldn't be someone the Mavs bring back.

The Mavs ended up re-signing him on a one-year deal, and this season has been less productive than last season for him. Morris is averaging 2.6 points and 1.8 rebounds per game while shooting 32.7 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from downtown. He has been used in some games as someone Jason Kidd needs some size on the wing, but the Mavs won't need to use Morris much anymore since they traded for P.J. Washington.

Washington brings great size on the wing, and his ability to play either forward spot or even the small-ball five is excellent. He does everything that Morris can do and better, and Morris will likely only play during garbage time.

Morris wasn't playing much in the first place, but he did get some run when Dallas was battling injuries. The Mavs made a massive upgrade by trading for Washington, and Morris is someone who falls down the depth chart at the deadline.
