Mavs Draft

The Mavericks have done a very good job in the draft the last few years. The bulk of their team has come through the draft.

Dirk Nowitzki, Josh Howard, Devin Harris, Greg Buckner, Mo Ager and now Nick Fazekas and Reyshawn Terry.

Fazekas can play. I’ve seen a few of his games over the last two years he played at Nevada. He was almost always the best player on the court.

At 6-11 he can help the Mavs. Because he’s a shooter and white, all the negative comparisons to Keith Van Horn, Raef LaFrentz and Austin Croshere come to mind. The Mavs think he’s the best shooter in the draft. I’m more impressed with the fact he was 5th in the NCAA’s in rebounding.

You don’t come to the NBA and learn how to rebound. Fazekas has the height and the ability to get boards. You can not underestimate that.

Terry is a long guy from UNC. Now if you know what a Carolina homer I am, how can I say anything negative? I’m all about having Tar Heels on your team.

He’s a 6-8 wing player. The Mavs liked him because he can defend, rebound, and score. He didn’t get a lot of major minutes and Carolina because the Tar Heels are always loaded with tremendous talent.

I did want the Mavs to draft Glen “Big Baby” Davis, but the Mavs said Terry and Fazekas fit their clubs better.

I don’t expect them to make major contributions next season, but down the road I think they could be pieces that help this club.

The pick of Renaldas Seibutis is….I don’t know. I know the Blazers wanted to take him.
The Mavericks will stash this guy overseas and see if it can work out for him in the NBA down the road.

He was born on Christmas Day so maybe he has some good luck for the Mavs down the road. Other than that, I got nothing on this kid. He played in Greece and at 6-6 he is a slasher. Mavs GM Donnie Nelson told me Seibutis’s game is like that of TNT commentator, Doug Collins.
