If the NBA season does not return, the very next move for the Dallas Mavericks will be looking toward the 2020 NBA Draft. As it currently stands, the Dallas Mavericks would have the 18th and the 31st overall pick from the Golden State Warriors in the 2020 NBA Draft, which would provide them with the opportunity to add high-quality draft talent just outside of the first round. One name that would make a lot of sense for the Dallas Mavericks in the second round is Vernon Carey Jr. out of Duke. Vernon Carey Jr. had a good freshman year as the Blue Devils’ primary center, but not enough to make him a surefire first-round pick. If Carey Jr. does fall to the second round, the Dallas Mavericks should pick him up to provide some more depth at the center position. Jimmy Crowther, host of NBA Now, breaks down 5 prospects the Mavs could target with their 2nd round draft pick IN THE VIDEO ABOVE AND BELOW.

Another player that was once projected as a first-round pick that may be sliding down draft boards is Jordan Nwora, who played for Louisville his junior season. Jordan Nwora can play either forward position for the Dallas Mavericks, but may be better suited as a stretch four due to his lack of athleticism for a small forward. Nwora has elite three-point range, which will easily translate to the next level. His jump shot and NBA-ready range is what would make him a solid addition to any team picking in the early part of the second round of the 2020 NBA draft.

Precious Achiuwa of Memphis had an outstanding freshman season for the Tigers. His freak athleticism is one of, if not the most impressive part of his game that will translate to the NBA immediately and could help the Dallas Mavericks quite a bit. Achiuwa is a bit undersized as a big man, but his explosiveness and ability to block shots is something that will make him a worthwhile investment for teams picking in the late first round or early second round. Achiuwa’s offensive game needs some polishing, but he projects to be a good NBA rebounder and shotblocker due to his wingspan.
Daniel Oturu out of Minnesota had an outstanding sophomore season by improving his defense and scoring at a high rate. Thanks to him staying put in college for an extra year, Oturu has improved his draft stock and could be taken anywhere from the late teens to the early second round. The Dallas Mavericks do have Kristaps Porzingis, Dwight Powell, Boban Marjanovic and Maxi Kleber set to return next season, but with Powell set to miss the first half of the season with a torn achilles, Oturu could help sure up the big man rotation in Dallas.
