Mavs Visits Now: Wilson, Jefferson, Moreland
DB.com has learned that today's Dallas Mavericks pre-draft workouts at the AAC featured three prospects -- or, at least, was supposed to feature the following three.
Jamil Wilson, the Marquette standout, sustained a sprained ankle during a recent workout for the Jazz. That's caused him to scratch sessions with teams, Dallas included. But he remains on the wish list for this team with two second-round picks.
Wilson fits the mold we were told to look for: A versatile 6-7 athlete who averaged 11.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists as a senior last season.
Cory Jefferson is in Dallas' full Tuesday workout plans. He's 23 and just started this year to develop a jumper. But some think the power forward prospect is a top-50 player at 6-9 and 218.
Eric Moreland is a Texas native and an Oregon State product who some think remains a project. The 6-10, 224-pound junior might be able to play forward or center.
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) ... so again, they are exploring.
We're exploring, too, which is how we bring you the exclusive story of the four interesting 7-footers who visited Dallas on Monday.
