    Default Draft Picks Available (Update in post #93)

    The Dallas Mavericks are hoping to trade the 13th overall pick in order to clear additional cap space to pursue Dwight Howard, according to sources.

    The 13th overall pick has a cap hold of $1,655,300.

    The Mavericks' future first rounder was traded to the Lakers in the Lamar Odom tarde and is top-20 protected through 2017.

    This may be an easy way for us to get back into the draft. It's one pick lower than we were suppose to have and it wouldn't hurt to strength our team.

    I'm not sure how we would aquire it -- are players like Pietrus still on our payroll to trade until the draft?

    or could we trade a future second round pick and cash?

    Who would you draft at the 13th spot?

    I'd do a future second rounder and cash to buy that pick. You can't trade for it as they don't want the cap hold/salary.

    With a lottery pick it might be a lot easier to grease the wheels on a Bargnani trade.

    IF....IF we keep the pick someone like Kelly Olynk would interest me.

    also Michael Carter Williams is projected to go around that point as well

    It clearly says they're going after Dwight with the pick. Not sure if they're willing to give it up for anything but him...

    They want to snag him as a free agent, which means they need cap space. I don't think they want to do a sign and trade

    It may also be a smoke screen. The Mavs shouldn't have a hard time making an offer to Howard, even if they keep the pick. They may just want to put teams at ease and create false rumours. So far, they've also been attached to Saric A LOT.

    I don't know who Toronto would be able to give up to get it but, if they got it then I would say Michael Carter Williams, The dude has 7.3 assists per game, is 6'6 with a 41 inch vertical, can rebound the ball pretty well and creates a lot of mismatch ups, the length that the raps had would be amazing plus it would make them even more of a threat having to worry about every rap on the court dunking on people when you have Williams, Derozan, Gay, Amir, Val. Three point shooting would become a bit of an issue but this kid i think is worth a pick for the Raps. In his interviews he speaks of how he wants to win and that one of his advantages is that he doesn't let anything get to him on the court. So, yes please get the pick and if so pick this fellow up.
    Whoever told you skies the limit is looking dumb because I'm 22 and i'm moonwalking on the sun.

    I like this idea. Definitely a risky pick but it would give us a back-up pg for the season and if Lowry really isn't the answer at PG Schroeder very well could be.

    A good combination of addressing need and talent. Sounds like he could have the speed and vision of Tony Parker but unfortunately the shooting skills of Rubio.

    I am intrigued by both Schroeder and Carter-Williams. Schroeder as a speedy option, and C-W as a big PG option. Both have PG skills. Shooting is a concern, but it often is for young players. Some guys can develop it, some can't.

    The most money any team can include in transactions is $3M. I believe the Raptors sent all of that to MEM in Gay trade.

    Only way for Raps to get this pick is to wait until after July 1st to send money and have Mavs pick on their behalf or include a future pick of some sort: either right to switch, conditional 1st, 2nd rd pick.

    I got it! Kyle Lowry for Dallas' number 13 pick. That was easy.

    The premise of the article in this thread is they literally don't want any salary back. Either a later pick or cash

    Most likely future pick.

    I can't see how Toronto can acquire the pick. Only assets Dallas have on their books next year are Carter and Nowitski... neither of which would be available (Dirk) or wanted (Vince).. would be nice to have another pick but can't see it happening.. unless you want to trade the 2014 pick for it, which I wouldn't do.

    We already used that cash on the Memphis trade.. can only use the cash on one transaction per year.
