We are in the home stretch of the NBA season, and there is plenty to be excited about if you're a Dallas Mavericks fan.

The team has won their last three games, and Luka Doncic is playing at an all-time level. He seems to be breaking a new record every month, and his offensive dominance is unbelievable.

Both of Dallas' new trade acquisitions are also fitting in nicely, with Daniel Gafford chasing a record of his own. P.J. Washington has turned into Dallas' best perimeter defender, and he is starting to get into a groove on offense as well.

The playoffs will be here before we know it, and hopefully, Luka, Kyrie Irving, and the Mavs are still playing. They could be a team that is fighting for a spot in the Play-In Tournament, but you can't count out Doncic in the playoffs. No matter who he is playing against.

Here we will dive into every Dallas Mavericks player's contract, and rank them from bargain to nightmare.

15. Luka Doncic

When you have a player who has the potential to be an all-time great in the NBA on your team, any amount of money that you pay them is considered a bargain.

This season for Dallas, Luka Doncic is averaging 34.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 9.8 assists, and 1.5 steals per game while shooting 49.7 percent from the field and 38 percent from downtown. He is having an MVP-caliber season in front of our eyes and puts on a show every time he puts on a Mavs jersey.

Doncic is under contract for three more years after this season but has a player option after the second year. He is in year one of a five-year, $215 million contract extension, and that is a massive bargain for the production the Mavs get out of Doncic every game.

He has a 73-point game this season, and if he keeps playing like this and staying healthy, Doncic will become one of the highest-paid players in the NBA soon.
