I can see how Tankathon has Grayson Allen going to the Mavs at #34, since basically all the obvious names you'd want to take at that spot are projected in the 25-33 range... Otherwise, it's a bunch of PGs until you get to Mo Wagner at #41 (who I would also consider, depending on who we took with our first pick). I mean, Allen IS talented, but he's also a bitch -- I don't see RC getting on board with that pick.

I'm still praying for Kieta Bates-Diop to somehow fall to us, or maybe we can package both of our second rounders to move up a few spots and grab him.

Wasn't Motley going to go late in the 1st before injury?

Touch... I guess it also depends on what teams are looking for. There seems to be a ton of guards projected in the second round -- I could see the scarcity of forwards possibly driving up Jackson's value a bit.

But availability aside, I would be definitely be interested in getting him. Dude has the length-range combo you want in the modern NBA.

what do you guys think of mykhailiuk from Kansas? he's come up as a name for the Mavs before. seems like a nice deep threat but is he redundant if Mcdermott continues to work out?

Donte divincenzo declared... no agent though. He’s an intriguing prospect and I would love him with our 2nd rounder.

I am curious if Memphis will for sure pass up Bagley and take Doncic. They have a couple decent guards/wing players already especially if they could retain Evans. If they take Doncic, would Evans accept what the leftover money they have and less minutes to offer him? Doncic is going to take a lot of the minutes with the starters so maybe Evans A)wants a bigger payday. B) Would rather come to Dallas and start along side DSJ and get more minutes because that starting SG spot is open. Wes isn't going anywhere but I prefer him coming off the bench. I've read that it seems very likely that they would take Doncic, but I'm interested in others opinion who may know more about their roster and their possible plans.

In an attempt to tank. You think that means it is guaranteed he is gone? I would imagine he is gone more so because his resurgence will demand more than what they could give him. I would love to have him along side DSJ, Wes will never be able to provide what he does, nor will Seth.

I don't know a lot about Evans, but I feel like Wes is a better fit next to DSJ.

Both are decent shooters from deep (Evans actually averaged 39.9% last year. Matthews was 38.1% and was averaging 43% from three in February before he got injured and we started tanking hard).

I like Matthews more because of loyalty and leadership, but if Evans is cheaper, I would grab him. Evans isn't as strong defensively, but he provides similar size and skills and is 3 years younger

Evan is a much, much better ball handler. That's where Wes just falls off the map in games. He tries to do things he simply can't.

But if Matthews opts in, then I dunno of a big purpose to getting Evans. I could see adding him if the Mavs put together a serious playoff team, but I think a lot of other teams will want him.

Memphis is not in a position to choose their player based on filling a spot - they should take the player they think is best. Gasol is 33 and Mike Conley is 30 and coming off injury. I suppose they could dream about putting together a contender with those 2 plus their lotto pick but that's a small window to hope for.

I would hope they are trying to contend, or compete. They just paid out the ass for Conley. Gasol is a handful, and 33 is not too old. If they went Bagley they would have someone to play along side him and maybe take that spot in a few years.

Yea. Evan's is an elite ball handler. He and Dsj would change things dramatically at the guard positions.

I'm not seeing how or why Wes opts out...but I'd much rather see him coming off the bench unless we just fail miserably at upgrading the 2 spot

In a strange statistical twist, the third and fifth teams have won the lottery more than any other in the last 28 years. The fourth worst team has never won a first overall.

Even though the 3rd pick has won 22% of the time, we still only have a 13.8% chance of winning the first pick and a 41.5% chance of a top three pick. The historical fluke doesn't impact our odds this year, but it's still interesting.

So what you are saying is that we are definitely getting the number 1 pick.
