2012 NBA Mock Draft: Kendall Marshall Picked By Dallas Mavericks

SI.com's Sam Amick has posted his latest and greatest 2012 NBA Mock Draft, and Amick has the Dallas Mavericks adding some youth to the point guard position in the first round. Amick has University of North Carolina product Kendall Marshall headed to the Mavericks with the No. 17 overall pick in the draft.

Here's what Amick had to say about Marshall and the pick:

Point guard is an uncertain position for the Mavericks, who have Jason Kidd about to test free agency and are set to chase Deron Williams on the open market. With free agency being settled after the draft, Dallas could use the point guard who is considered the best passer in the bunch by far. "At this next level, they have enough scorers in the NBA," said Marshall, who was second in the nation with 9.8 assists last season. "I'm not going to the NBA to average 20 points a game. I'm there to do what I do best, and that's make other guys better."

We'll see who Mark Cuban and the Mavericks pick in just two weeks time.
