Roundtable: Who Should the Dallas Mavericks Draft in the Second Round?
Sam Casey: Ben Bentil
“I want us to draft Dirk’s eventual replacement. My favorite realistic option is Ben Bentil. It’s not assured he will be on the board when the Mavs get their turn, but if he is this would be a great pick. Bentil can score the ball well posting up or from outside, and has good NBA size (a little short, but good width and wingspan). He needs work on decision-making and finer basketball areas, but has the potential to be a good stretch four after Dirk retires.
Second favorite is Petr Cornelie. He’s a super raw prospect – size and athleticism is intriguing, but needs lots of coaching. My favorite non-PF is Tyler Ulis. Love literally everything about him (his game, work ethic, leadership, IQ) except his tiny size (5’8″ 150 lbs). Not a position of need for the Mavs, but he is the best value at our pick.” -Bentil
