Dallas Mavericks: Resetting the Mavs future draft assets

The Dallas Mavericks lost their 2019 first round draft pick on May 14. Here is a look at the Mavs future draft assets following the lottery.

The Dallas Mavericks have been active in trying to rebuild their roster to return to the playoffs. The front office traded for Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis to give the Mavs two young cornerstones. Acquiring young talent is always costly in the NBA, though.

The Mavericks have traded four first round picks in the last year. They completed their trade with the Atlanta Hawks on May 14. The Mavs owe Atlanta their 2019 first rounder (pick ten overall) to finish the Luka Doncic trade.

Fans may be wondering what draft assets the Dallas Mavericks still have in the coming years, so here is a breakdown.

2019

Second round pick (37th overall)

Their first rounder heads to the Hawks, but Dallas will still be picking in the second round. They have the seventh choice in round two and will be hoping to add another rotation piece.

2020

First round pick

Second round pick

More favorable of Warriors or Rockets second-round pick

The Stepien Rule does not allow the Mavs to trade their first-round picks in consecutive years so Dallas will have their top pick in 2020. They also have two second rounders. The Mavericks made a few deals to acquire the additional pick.

2021

Second round pick

The Mavs sent their 2021 first rounder to the Knicks in the Porzingis trade. The pick is unprotected so it will head to New York in 2021. Dallas still holds their second round selection, though.

2022

First round pick

Second round pick

The Mavericks have both of their selections in the 2022 draft.

2023

First round pick- Must fall from 1-10 for the Mavs to keep the selection

Second round pick

Heat’s second round pick

The Mavericks traded two first round picks to the Knicks in that Porzingis deal. The pick is top-ten protected in 2023. If it does not head to New York, it is top-ten protected in 2024 and 2025 as well. If Dallas has not sent their first rounder to the Knicks by 2025 it becomes a 2025 second round pick.

The Mavs also hold the Heat’s second round pick that is unprotected in 2023 from the Josh McRoberts trade in June 2017.

Final thoughts

The Dallas Mavericks remain active in trying to return to contention. That means plenty of trades that include future draft picks. Hopefully, fans have an improved understanding of where the Mavericks draft assets stand in the coming seasons.

Expect Dallas to continue pushing towards the playoffs this offseason. They have cap space to add in free agency. Do not rule out another trade this summer to improve the team either.

Fans should keep it tuned in to The Smoking Cuban for everything they desire this offseason.
