NBA Draft: 2019 Mock 2.0: If the Dallas Mavericks land in top 4
By Kohl Rast
The NBA Draft is fast approaching and Dallas Mavericks fans are hoping they can sneak their way into the top 4. What would the Mavs do if they did end up with a top 4 pick? And which of your favorite college players will go where?
The NBA Draft Lottery is nearly here and Dallas Mavericks fans are waiting at the edges of their seats to see if the Mavs are going to get to keep their first round pick in this year’s draft. With Zion Williamson, R.J. Barrett, Ja Morant and others sitting at the top of the first round, Dallas would love to get their hands on some more young players.
The lotto will determine the top four teams in this year’s draft, something a little bit different in years past in which only the first three teams were selected in the lottery. This allows the Mavs some extra chances to land inside that top four and keep their pick for another year. If Dallas were able to score the top overall pick, things would get real interesting, real quick.
What would happen if the Mavs did land in the top four of this draft? Who would they select and who would be the best available players at any of the top four spots in the draft?
Also, would the Mavs choose to trade the pick? I think they’d definitely look into is as long as they weren’t trying to trade away the top pick. Everyone knows that Zion Williamson is the clear cut first overall pick, but few understand just how good he could be once he’s in the league.
Aside from just seeing who the Mavs might take, why not take a look at who the teams after Dallas might be taking with their various picks throughout the draft. The Celtics in particular have four selections potentially.
So, without further ado, here’s the mock draft, based partially on who the Mavericks would take if they were in the top four.
