The Dallas Mavericks will have a lot of different options to consider with their first round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Here are four possible point guards.
The Dallas Mavericks have not played since the NBA suspended play on March 11. With the season temporary on hold, scouts have had extra time to dive in on the tape of the 2020 NBA Draft’s top prospects.
This class lass is widely regarded as one of the weakest in the past 20 years. The top of the draft does not boast the potential superstars that have been present in other years.
This does not mean that there won’t be stellar players and even potential All-Stars that emerge from this draft. Every year there are players that vastly outperform their expectations and make an immediate impact on the league.
The Mavs would have the 18th and 31st picks in this draft if the standings locked with suspension. While the regular season could resume in some limited capacity, it is unlikely that Dallas will move much from their selection at 18. They hold the rights to Golden State’s second rounder at 31.
This will be the first part of a series on prospects that Dallas Mavericks fans should get to know before the draft. Every play has a decent chance of being available for the Mavs’ first round selection. Today, the focus is point guards with other positions coming later this week.
NOTE: A few names that were not included because they rated a bit too highly were Tyrese Haliburton, Kira Lewis Jr., and Cole Anthony. They would be three names to watch if Dallas trades up into the lottery.
