Dallas Mavericks 2017 NBA Draft Big Board 1.0
With the Dallas Mavericks looking like they will be selecting in the lottery this summer, here is the first installment of our Dallas Mavericks 2017 NBA Draft Big Board.
The Dallas Mavericks currently sit with a 17-30 record as the thirst worst team in the Western Conference. With Dirk Nowitzki, Deron Williams, J.J. Barea, Andrew Bogut and others all missing time (some significant) due to injury, the Mavericks haven’t been able to get over the injury bug all year.
Throughout the first month of the season, Dallas seemed destined for a top 3 pick in the draft with the chance of landing the first overall pick. Now, after getting some veterans back from injury, the Mavericks have been vocal in pushing for the playoffs.
But nobody knows how this “playoff push” will turn out.
Will the Mavericks be successful in their playoff push and get to the seventh or eighth seed? Will they make the push and barely miss? Will injuries strike again and they decide to tank the last month of the season?
The Mavericks could literally land anywhere (well, not anywhere) in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft.
The following is the first installment of our Dallas Mavericks Big Board 1.0 where I rank the top 15 prospects based off position need, roster makeup/contracts, and direction of the Dallas Mavericks franchise moving forward.
