5-on-5 With Chris Stone on the Dallas Mavericks 2017 NBA Draft
The Dallas Mavericks are heading towards a lottery pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Here are five questions surrounding their strategy, targets, and more.
The Dallas Mavericks sit with a 11-24 record and quite naturally, the talk around Dallas is centered around their first round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
It was just under a month ago the Dallas Mavericks sat at the very bottom of the league with the worst record in the NBA and under 10 wins on the season. Now, after getting relatively healthy over the last couple of weeks, the Mavericks have climbed up to 11 wins, but is still considered one of the worst teams in the league.
Even though “tanking” is not the gospel that is being preached in Dallas, finishing towards the bottom of the league could be on the horizon come the spring.
So what should the Dallas Mavericks do with their first round pick?
Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball sit near the top of some draft boards, but who should Dallas take if they have the choice? If both are gone, who should Dallas target? What about the second-tier point guards? Is there a name that could creep into the top 5?
