The Dallas Mavericks failed to move up in the 2023 NBA Draft Lottery, but it was far from the doomsday scenario. They held at tenth overall and kept their first-round pick. The Mavs owed it to the Knicks with a top ten protection from the Kristaps Porzingis trade. Dallas now owes their 2024 first-rounder to the Knicks with another top-ten protection.

Tuesday’s draft lottery set the order for the 2023 NBA Draft. Victor Wembanyama will now head to the San Antonio Spurs on June 22, and it was the Hornets and Trail Blazers that will round out the top three. It was a massive night for the Spurs, and they get another generational talent.

It was an emotional and wild night that gave everyone clarity on what to expect in this year’s draft. Here is a look at the order of all 58 picks.

There are only 58 picks in the 2023 NBA Draft because the Sixers and Nuggets were forced to forfeit their second-round selections.

The Dallas Mavericks failed to change their luck in this year’s lottery. It was their 16th time in the event, and the Mavs have still never moved up.

Dallas is hoping to avoid the lottery for the next decade-plus with Luka Doncic on their roster, but they need more talent to make that a reality. Can the Mavericks add it? Will they trade the tenth overall pick to acquire some? Stay tuned to find out.
