1. Dorian Finney-Smith
Since moving Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets have a team full of 3-and-D wings almost any team in the league could use. They are not going anywhere as a team, however.
Sitting in tenth place in the Eastern Conference, they are not bad enough to get a top pick but also not good enough to foster any real postseason hopes. So, they might not be totally against making some trades and shaking things up a little.
Mika Bridges and Cameron Johnson, their two best two-way wings, probably won’t be on the table, but they don’t have to be for the Kings to be interested. Dorian Finney-Smith would be a great fit as well.
He has good size, defends well against forwards, and shoots over 40 percent on 5.6 three-point attempts per game. The poster child 3-and-D guy who also has experience playing next to an All-Star point guard, Finney-Smith could solve many of the Kings’ problems.
Pairing him with De’Aaron Fox and Keegan Murray would immediately change the team’s defensive identity, and his shooting would easily make up for potentially losing Kevin Huerter in the deal.
Scoring-wise, he produces a little less than Harrison Barnes on average, but he would be a huge and much-needed upgrade defensively.
