If Vassell becomes available for both of our picks I'd do it in a heartbeat. Bey should be there for us but I wouldn't pick him....not enough upside imo.
Not sure about Nesmith. I was pretty high on him earlier this year but have cooled off. He is basically a Wes Matthews clone in just about all aspects of his game but I'm not sure I'd give up #31 with #18 to get him. Vassell would be a no-brainer for both picks imo.
I'd even consider both picks and Brunson for Vassell. Vassell is legit starter material and a perfect fit for what we need. He is DFS with a much higher ceiling.

Fair. This is the first year i've tried to watch some college ball, so my scouting abilities are likely poor... :lol:

Just feel like those 3 are great fits to be immediate starters in the NBA, all great 3&D prospects which will fit on the team.

I don't think they are poor at all because all 3 of them would fit well on the Mavs.
I just think Vassell has tremendous upside with a ceiling of the Matrix and would be a great fit for our needs.
Nesmith is starter material, and could become a nice fitting piece, but I see his ceiling much lower because of his lack of athleticism.
I see Bey as an instant contributor but with a ceiling as a role player similar as DFS and Maxi. He would be a solid fit and would help our ailing wing defending situation.

I think you offer up some very nice options for the Mavs. If Nesmith could slip to us at 18 I'd definitely like to see the Mavs take Paul Reed at 31 because he is an outstanding defender and could fill an enormous need. He has decent size, long, can rebound and can basically guard all 5 positions in today's NBA. Similar game as Aminu but he does have a very ugly looking shot that I'm not sure can be fixed.

Bridges does come to mind but I think Vassell has the upside of the Matrix in terms of impact because he is super athletic, can defend several positions, has a high motor, and can shoot the 3. I'm not sure Bridges has that potential.

Luka/THJ/Vassell/DFS/KP could become an extremely dangerous SL in a couple years.

I'm almost completely convinced the Mavs should draft Josh Green if they can't make some type of deal to move up to get Vassell.
The knocks on Green's game is his inability to create going left and inconsistency shooting 3s. However he is a much better catch and shoot 3pt shooter and could become a lock down defender making him the ultimate 3-D candidate. He is also extremely strong and athletic with a long WS which is something we could use in the SL.
After watching Luka last night getting guys wide open for 3 makes me think Green would be a solid addition to this team and he does have an enormous upside. His athleticism and ability to play above the rim would be extremely entertaining playing with Luka.

Right now Green moves up to #2 on my board of realistic candidates for the Mavs behind Vassell. Vassell could only be had via trade but if he somehow falls to the back half of the lotto range, I could see the Mavs getting extremely aggressive to move up for him. Poku was my #2 guy but now my order would be Vassell/Green/Poku/Nesmith/Lewis.
