Should the Dallas Mavericks Trade Their First Rounder?
Keep the Pick
Obviously with the Dallas Mavericks draft history, most fans are going to want to hold on to the upcoming first round pick. This makes a lot of sense, especially considering where we are sitting in the current standings.
Personally, I am on board with keeping the pick. Looking at this year’s draft class, even if we come in around the bottom part of the lottery, we still have a chance of getting a future star in this first round. That would be great for the future of the team and to help out Harrison Barnes.

We have had a few first round picks that have done well in the league, usually for other teams. Jae Crowder, Devin Harris, and Justin Anderson have all been either high picks for the Mavs or picks the Mavs traded for.
There is a downside to hanging on to the pick for now, however. Mark Cuban has made it very clear that we have no intentions of even considering a tanking possibility. For more information on that, click here.
With that in mind, the Mavs are going to try to fight out of this slump. If the team is successful in that attempt, the draft pick not only loses value come draft day, it also loses a lot of value in the trade market.
Is it more beneficial to hold out and see where we end up? Or should we bite the bullet early in hopes for greener pastures this season?
