26 Dallas Mavericks
Davis Bertans SF
18 years old; 6-10, 210
Union Olimpija Ljubljana, International
Fresh off winning an NBA championship, the Dallas Mavericks are in position to pick a player who may be a couple of years away from contributing. Small forward could become a position of need, and having a talented prospect like Bertans developing overseas on a Euroleague team makes sense considering that roster spots are at a premium for the Mavs.
Analysis: The Mavs likely will stay primarily a veteran team. So they'll work to add value wherever they can. Mirotic is a talented player who would go 10 spots higher if he wasn't stuck in Europe the next two or three years with a difficult contract to get out of.
But the Mavs can afford to be patient with a talent like this and hope that in a few years, he'll be ready to step in and play right away.
