Yesterday, we learned that the Mavericks are continuing to shop the No. 13 pick in the draft and they're not asking for all that much in return. Moving that selection would free up a little bit of extra cap space for Dallas as they hope to make a big free agent splash, which would ideally mean landing Chris Paul or Dwight Howard. Their chances for either player may not seem that strong right now, but Mark Cuban can certainly change things with a convincing pitch after July 1st. Here's today's draft news..
- French draft prospect Rudy Gobert reiterated to HoopsHype (Twitter link) that he has no intention of returning to Europe for another season, which means that he's not a candidate for a "stash" pick. DraftExpress' latest mock has Gobert going No. 10 to the Trail Blazers.
- The T'Wolves next set of workouts won't be until June 12th and that'll be a big man's day with Pittburgh's Steven Adams, Bucknell product (and Minnesota native) Mike Muscala, and others, tweets Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Adams figures to be a first round pick while Muscala is slated for the second round in most mock drafts.
- Minnesota senior Trevor Mbakwe will audition for the T'Wolves on June 19th, tweets Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN.
- Marquette guard Trent Lockett is working out for the Bulls and Bucks this week, according to Wolfson (via Twitter). Lockett was also at the big workout in Las Vegas on Friday where 26 teams had representatives.
