2. Dorian Finney-Smith

The Milwaukee Bucks are reportedly interested in the 30-year-old forward from the Brooklyn Nets. This makes plenty of sense as Finney-Smith has the prototypical skillset the Bucks are looking to add to their roster.

Finney-Smith can play both forward positions and has good size at 6'7" and 220 pounds. He can guard multiple positions while also being a reliable shooter from the outside. He is hitting 38.3% of his threes this season while defending the best wing scorers in the league night in and night out.

The best moments of Finney-Smith's career came with the Dallas Mavericks. In 2021-22, he was one of the most important members of the Mavs team that went to the conference finals. In the 18 games in the 2022 playoffs, Finney-Smith averaged over 38 minutes per game and made 42.6% of his threes.

He may not replicate that level of impact again, but Finney-Smith would be an excellent plug-and-play option for any playoff team in the league, including the Bucks. He is on a reasonable $14 million per year contract, making it easy to match salaries and pull off the trade.
