2012 NBA Draft Results: Dallas Mavericks Take Bernard James, Jae Crowder

As a part of their draft day deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Dallas Mavericks took Bernard James and Jae Crowder with the No. 33 and No. 34 overall picks in the 2012 NBA Draft.

James, a 27-year old center from Florida State, didn't play basketball in high school and grew while serving in the US Air Force. An athletic 6'10 230 center, he could be helpful as a small-ball center with the athleticism to block shots (2.3 a game) and finish at the rim (61% shooting).

Crowder, a 6'6 240 combo forward from Marquette, was the Big East Player of the Year, but he's extremely undersized for his position in the NBA.

Neither James nor Crowder were the type of home-run pick Dallas could have made in the second round, but they have the chance to make the roster and contribute immediately.

2012 NBA Draft Results: Dallas Mavericks Take Jared Cunningham At No. 24

As part of a draft day deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Dallas Mavericks have taken Oregon State SG Jared Cunningham with the No. 24 overall pick in the first round.

Cunningham slipped under the radar for most of the season, but he is an intriguing talent, although there were players with higher upsides who were still on the board.

As a junior, he averaged 18 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists on 51% shooting. He'll be able to step in immediately and help the Mavericks with his ability to get to the rim and defend on the perimeter.

His ceiling as a player will depend in large part on his ability to consistently knock down 3-point shots (he shot 34% from deep) and make decisions with the ball in his hands (he averaged almost as many turnovers as assists).

2012 NBA Draft Rumors: Chad Ford Says Kendall Marshall 'Won't Get Past Dallas'

The buzz around Kendall Marshall to the Dallas Mavericks has reached a fever pitch in NBA draft circles, with Chad Ford, ESPN's NBA Draft Insider, becoming the latest pundit to report on Dallas' interest in the UNC PG.

In his chat on Wednesday, Ford gave a projected range for Marshall with a floor at No. 17:

Very possible. Hornets at 10, Blazers at 11, Suns at 13 all possibilities. Don't think he slips past the Mavs at 17.

Marshall is considered the second-best PG in the draft, although I think his lack of athleticism or scoring ability puts him behind both Damian Lillard (Weber State) and Scott Machado (Iona).

In terms of where he could land before Dallas, both New Orleans and Portland have two lottery picks, and they might be willing to take a player like Marshall higher than his talent would indicate in order to help them develop their other rookie, especially if it's a raw big man like Anthony Davis or Andre Drummond who could use Marshall spoon-feeding him layups.
