8. Dorian Finney-Smith

Dorian Finney-Smith is a tough draw for opponents, as he prides himself on clamping down defensively. the 30-year-old forward is one of the more switchable defenders in the league, due, in large part, to his 6-foot-7 frame and 6-foot-11 wingspan.

DFS possesses the ability to defend every position on the floor, including bigs. DFS brings his lunch pail every night and doesn't take plays off.

In other words, his effort knows no bounds and you aren't going to outwork him. 

Granted, DFS is a bit of an unreliable shooter, as he made just 30.6 percent of his threes after being sent to the Brooklyn Nets, which is a bit of a concern. But he posted career averages of 36.1 percent from deep through seven seasons with the Dallas Mavericks.

The Nets could easily find themselves undergoing a rebuild, in which case they'd love to free themselves of the remaining $27.6 million guaranteed that he's owed through 2025. Not to mention the fact that the team is slated to build around Ben Simmons, who they hope can make a comeback, and Mikal Bridges.

This would force DFS to a reserve role, which could make the Nets more inclined to deal him for draft capital and Oladipo's expiring deal.
