2011 NBA Mock Draft: Donatas Motiejunas Projected To Dallas

The latest and final 2011 NBA Mock Draft has been published by the good people of SB Nation, and there's a change in who the crystal ball has the Mavericks taking. Previously, Jimmy Butler had been Dallas' projected selection. Now, SB Nation has the Mavericks selecting Donatas Motiejunas from Lithuania with the No. 26 overall selection.

Motiejunas is a center, and, if the Mavericks do select him, comparisons to Dirk Nowitzki will be inevitable, no matter how unfair and inaccurate the comparison is. 

The Cleveland Cavaliers who hold the No. 1 and No. 4 overall selection are projected to take Kyrie Irving with the first overall selection. Irving, of course, went to Duke but missed a good portion of this past season due to injury. With the fourth pick, the Cavs are projected to select Jan Vesley from the Czech Republic.

Kemba Walker, who became a hero in Connecticut and garnered national attention during UConn's ridiculous Big East championship and NCAA championship run, is projected to go No. 7 overall to the Sacramento Kings.

The NBA Draft will get underway on Thursday night at 7 p.m. ET.
