I see on ESPN that there are reports out of Dallas that the Mavs are interested in trading their 13th pick in the draft to get rid of the $1.6m cap hold that it carries and so they can make a run at the guy who was named all NBA 3rd Team Centre.
I'm interested to get peoples views on the following:
- Is this pick worth going after? (in your opinion)
- Do we have the assets to acquire it?
