Not sure if it's been mentioned, but it's almost a certainty that the Mavs trade away their 13th pick.
Marion, most likely, would be included as well.
The Cavs have been linked to the this trade rumor. Cavs get 13 and Marion, Mavs get 19, 31, 33.
I'm not against it. Cavs have enough cap space to basically absorb Marion's contract and we actually need some veterans in the locker room to help mentor the young guys... And SF is a major position of need, assuming we go Noel #1.
Having the 13th pick would mean the Cavs are likely to take Karesav, who is being called maybe the best pure shooter in the draft, or maybe Giannis Adetokunbo.
I'd personally like to get Caldwell-Pope, but I don't think he'll slip down to 13.
Noel/KCP would be an absolutely amazing draft.
Still, a young core of...
PG - Kyrie Irving
SG - Dion Waiters
SF - Sergey Karasev or Giannis Adetokunbo
PF - Tristan Thompson
C - Nerlens Noel
Yeah... I'd take that.
