2010 NBA Draft: Dallas Mavericks Draft Grade

Dallas Mavericks Draft Picks


Acquired off trades

Dominique Jones 6'4'' Shooting Guard

Dominique Jones is one of those guys who can get it done at the point or shooting guard position.
What makes him more comfortable at the two guard position is his ability to score efficiently on the offensive end.
He is more of a both built inside one player. His dribble-drive is just, if not as good as, any players in this upcoming draft. Along with the drive he displays the ability to shoot the mid-range and three point jumpers and knock them down.
That means if he is a good shooter, foul shots also follow suit. With his aggressive mindset he has the ability to get to the line more than most.
With offense, he is equipped with defense. Overall James is a sub-par defender but his lateral quickness makes up for that. Big and strong physical body which shows he can survive in the NBA.


I don't know how much Dallas really needs a shooting guard seeing that they have Jason Terry but he could be a great starter for the Mavericks considering that Terry comes off the bench. This was a great trade for the Mavericks, they get one of the more underrated players in the draft.

Draft Grade: C+
