    Is Berman insinuating that the Mavs can somehow steal Ntilinka from the Knicks if the Knicks want him? Because that insinuation wouldn’t make much sense.

    Cuban stay away from our potential draft choices. This is your last warning.

    If the Mavs pick after us, Cuban can hang our potential draft choices all he wants.

    You know who I’d like to sign? Patty Mills.

    Oh please sweet Jesus let Cuban trade up ahead of the Knicks to get Frank because that will only mean Isaac or another unattainable prospect will drop to us……

    Very true, Bob. One of the mock drafts I recently saw had Minny taking Markkanen at #7. That wouldn’t hurt either.

    Does anyone like Jarrett Allen as a high risk-high reward pick? Not at #8 but if we acquire a #12-#15 pick?

    If we’re gonna go for high risk high reward I’d be much more happy with Giles than allen

    We still have a logjam in the frontcourt

    I don’t know, but the last time Dallas had a top-10 draft pick they managed to turn it into Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash, creating one of the best offenses ever and basically rebuilding in one day.

    Apparently the Knicks worked out and ate dinner with Kennedy Meeks

    Really hope they sign him to one of those new fangled two way contracts or draft him with their last pick

    I don’t know much about the different possible draft picks, but I am intrigued by Ntikilina because he’s very young for his level of competence, he can defend and he can pass. The fact that the Mavericks like him enough for Cuban himself to go to Europe, only makes me want him more.

    They picked Robert Traylor and traded him for Nowitzki+

    Traylor for Nowitzki + Pat Garrity; then turned around and traded Garrity for Nash. All on draft day.

    So, whatever Dallas may be doing here, buyer beware!

    They do seem to be an organization that can evaluate talent well. They are making me want Ntikilina, but maybe it’s just a smoke screen

    Dallas is also the organization that looked at Harrison Barnes and said, “Yep. That’s a $100M player.”

    Cuban also let KB fave Tyson Chandler go after winning his only chip with him. But yeah, compared to Dolan, he’s a genius.

    Dallas also offered 47 million for 3 years of Chandler Parsons.

    They certainly had their fair share of dumb moves.

    It could have been an excuse for Cuban to visit Venice. He’s smart!
