2014 Draft Profile: Devyn Marble

The NBA Draft is set for Thursday, June 26th. The Dallas Mavericks are without a first round pick but hold the 34th and 51st picks in the second round.

We’ll take a look at some second rounders that could be in the Mavericks sights. As well, we’ll look at some borderline and late first rounders who could slide into the second.

Devyn Marble, Iowa – Senior

As a team full of veterans, the Mavericks could look to add an older player to fill the roster. Devyn Marble would find himself behind Monta Ellis, Wayne Ellington, and possibly Ricky Ledo at the shooting guard position, but his maturity and seasoning could be seen as a bright spot for the Mavs.

  • Shooting Guard
  • 2014 Averages: 33 games – 17 points, 42% fg, 34.9% 3-pt, 3.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.7 turnovers
