The Dallas Mavericks are currently well in the Western Conference playoff picture at 22-19, but thinking of them as a true contender in the NBA right now is wishful thinking. Outside of Luka Doncic, this team has some consistency issues that they need to sort out on the offensive-end of the floor. 

Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. are making a combined $52.9M this season, yet they have both had their ups and downs as the season goes on. 

Given that he is averaging 20.6 points and 8.0 rebounds, Porzingis’ production is where it needs to be, but durability is a major concern, as he has missed plenty of time through the years and has missed 15 games so far this season. 

As for Tim Hardaway Jr., he recently received a four-year, $75M contract in the offseason, but is only averaging 14.5 points and has been demoted to the bench-unit for now.

Neither player really holds a lot of value on the trade market as the trade deadline inches closer, so where do the Mavericks go from here to add some much-needed production next to Luka Doncic?

Dwight Powell and Willie Cauley-Stein are two low-end trade options that the Mavericks could look to get value for, but their best trade asset is Dorian Finney-Smith, who is in the final year of his contract and making $4M this season. 

Finney-Smith has been one of the most productive members of the Dallas Mavericks all season long and has one of the most valuable contracts in the league given the production he gives his team.

Shooting 38% from deep this season and being a very versatile defender on the wing, plenty of teams would definitely show interest in the 28-year-old forward should the Mavericks look to trade him. However, Dallas has shown no willingness to give up Finney-Smith, even though he is set to become a free agent in the offseason. 

Could the Dallas Mavericks leverage Dorian Finney-Smith at the trade deadline next month? Here are three players Dallas could look to target in a trade involving him.
