Dallas Mavericks: Locked On Mavericks Podcast With The Ringer’s Jonathan Tjarks
By Isaac Harris
In the latest episode of the Locked On Mavericks Podcast, I welcome Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer to talk about the 2018 NBA Draft.
As part of the Locked On Podcast Network, the Locked On Mavericks Podcast is a daily podcast that centers solely on all aspects and angles of the Dallas Mavericks.
The two hosts are myself, Editor of The Smoking Cuban and writer at Mavs.com, and Nick Angstadt, writer and podcaster at SB Nation’s Mavs Moneyball. Together, we host the daily Mavericks podcast where we bring insight from inside the locker room and press conferences while giving our opinions on the team.
In the latest episode, I sat down with The Ringer’s Jonathan Tjarks to talk about the 2018 NBA Draft. Tjarks is a staff writer at The Ringer where he focuses mainly on the NBA Draft and prospect analysis. He is also a part of The Ringer’s once a week podcast called “Draft Class”.

I asked Tjarks 10 questions centered around the 2018 NBA Draft and Dallas Mavericks.
We talk about topics such as hypothetical trades for the top overall pick, who Dallas would take at the top of the draft, where Dennis Smith Jr. would be ranked in this 2018 class, who Dallas should take at pick seven if the top prospects are gone and more.
We also talk specifically about players like Mikal Bridges and Chandler Hutchison.
I spend the second half of the podcast talking about Mavs free agency this coming summer, whether they should chase Boogie Cousins, and his solution/opinion on the tanking epidemic in the NBA.
We also go through a speed round of questions where Tjarks made some predictions.
