Mavs Workout: Cotton, Moser, Jackson, Clark

Under the watchful eye of Mavs staffers Kevin Stacom and Mike Procopio, mid-week pre-draft workouts at the AAC featured Big East star Bryce Cotton, UNLV forward Mike Moser, OU wing Cameron Clark and 'The King of Memphis' Joe Jackson. Only DB.com Mavs Premium takes you inside the AAC:



The Dallas Mavericks are beginning pre-draft workouts with eligible prospects and sources tell DB.com that Providence star Bryce Cotton led the parade to the AAC on Wednesday.

Joining him:

Mike Moser of UNLV, a 6-8, 204-pounder projected as a power forward. Moser is 23, started at UCLA before transferring, and as of two years ago was projected as a possible first-rounder. He's apparently second-round material now.

Joe Jackson is 6-0, 170, a playmaker who took advantage of the talent around him to serve as Memphis' distributor. His quickness allowed him to average 1.6 steals per game last season.



Jackson's nickname? "The King of Memphis.''

Cameron Clark is from Sherman, Texas, a product of the University of Oklahoma.

Clark, at 6-6, 210, might be able to play the 2 and 3. He's 23 years old and could be a mid-second-round pick.

Bryce Cotton has had workouts at San Antonio, Utah,, Sacramento, the Clippers combine, Miami, Boston and now Dallas. His agents tell DB.com he is scheduled for Indiana, Wizards, Cleveland and Philly. He is tentative for New York and Charlotte.

At Sacramento, Cotton set the workout shooting record. At Boston he is now in the top three among performers of their "marathon" exercise.

Here's his highlight reel as he earned Big East tournament MVP honors:



Cotton (6-1, 165) is the Friars' fourth all-time leading scorer and this year also led the club and the Big East in assists (5.9) while finishing second in scoring (21.8). He'd been a 2-guard before this season, part of his growth with Providence after receiving few scholarship offers out of high school in Arizona.

DB.com is told the Mavs' pre-draft workouts will focus largely on two-way "hybrid'' 3/4's. But they will of course explore players at every position and players like Cotton who might be projected as a late-second-rounder.

Dallas presently holds two second-round picks (at Nos. 34 and 51). But interestingly, DB.com has learned that at least two of the Mavs pre-draft invitees might be projected as first-rounders ( our list of Mavs pre-draft workouts which you can read exclusively here) ... and there was a day this week when the four 7-footers came to town ... so again, they are exploring.

And DB.com will continue to explore with them.
