Dallas Mavericks: 2017 NBA Mock Draft 3.0
Some would say the draft drops off at this point, but not for me.
Donovan Mitchell is an intriguing talent and someone who has risen up the draft boards since the combine. Coming out of the combine with a 6’10” wingspan and a vertical over 40 inches, Mitchell will give a team a unique talent in the back court moving forward.
Mitchell would come into Charlotte and give them a solid back up to Kemba Walker. He could even play alongside of Walker at times as he has the frame to defend opposing point guards.
I’m all in on Donovan Mitchell.
The Pistons need shooting desperately and how better to answer that hole than with one of the better shooters in the draft?
Luke Kennard has been rising up the draft boards and going 12th to Detroit makes sense.
With Caldwell-Pope set to hit restricted free agency, Kennard could be insurance for them in that negotiation or could give them a solid scoring presence off the bench. If Van Gundy wants to rebuild his old Orlando team in Detroit, Kennard could be his new J.J. Redick.
