Texas Legends storyline for Mavericks fans to follow: 2. Who gets called up?

It is always exciting to see a young player in the G League get promoted up to the NBA. One of the main storylines for each G League team going into the season is which player will be the first to get a chance in the league.

One of the early favorites to be called up from the Legends if he makes the final roster is Justin Jackson. Jackson played four seasons in the NBA, so it should not be a shock that he is the top choice to get the call.

Could one of the young G league draft picks make it to the NBA first? Loudon Love from Wright State is a name to watch as well. With the rebounding issues the Mavericks are having right now, Love averaged a double-double in his final season with Wright State.

Fans shouldn't be shocked if Carlik Jones or Feron Hunt were called up first either. They were part of the last cuts for the Mavericks during training camp. If a guard were to get injured, one or the other could be on the short list to join the Dallas Mavericks.
