NBA Mock Draft 2012: Draft Express Has Mavericks Taking Quincy Miller

In their last mock draft before the lottery selection on Wednesday night, Draft Express has the Dallas Mavericks going local and taking Baylor SF Quincy Miller with the No. 17 overall selection.

DX, an independent site that has steadily become one of the leading voices on the draft, has many of the guards Dallas has been linked with -- Washington SG Terrence Ross, UConn SG Jeremy Lamb and Weber State PG Damian Lillard -- going in the lottery.

However, Miller, one of the most intriguing prospects in the entire process, is no slouch himself. While his averages weren't that impressive (10.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists on 47% shooting), he was recovering from an ACL injury and dealing with a shaky offense and poor PG play.

At 6'9 200 with a 7'4 wingspan, he has elite length and an excellent outside shot, which should give him the ability to create a shot against almost any perimeter player in the NBA.

Getting that type of player at No. 17 would be a tremendous coup for the Mavericks.

For a more in-depth scouting report on Miller, check out this in-season profile I wrote in the NBA Draft Toolbox. Here's a video from his best game of the season, a 29 point effort against Missouri:
