Round 1 18 (18) Dallas Mavericks Shane Larkin PG 5'11 171 Miami (FL)
Shane Larkin

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: Dallas moved back two spots and still landed the point guard it coveted. The son of Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin, Shane Larkin quit baseball in elementary school and opted to pursue hoops. That turned out to be a wise decision as the younger Larkin led Miami to an ACC championship as a sophomore and emerged as one of the nation's premier point guards. The 5-foot-11 Larkin's modest size and strength are a concern for teams who favor taller, stronger point guards, but he does too many things well not to be a successful pro. He thrived in a screen-heavy offense at Miami, creating for himself or his teammates off the dribble and making excellent decisions with the ball in his hands.

Round 2 13 (43) Dallas Mavericks Ricky Ledo SG 6'6 197 Providence
Ricky Ledo

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: Had Ledo been eligible to play in his lone collegiate season at Providence, the highly touted wing had lottery potential. He's a risky pick because of questions about his off-court maturity, but he's also a good gamble for Dallas in the middle of the second round.


Note: from Bucks
Round 2 14 (44) Dallas Mavericks Mike Muscala C 6'11 230 Bucknell
Mike Muscala

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: Can Bucknell's Mike Muscala join Lehigh's C.J. McCollum as players who went from the Patriot League to the NBA? It's definitely possible. Muscala has the talent to make the NBA but needs to get stronger and prove he can handle the physicality in the paint.


Note: from Hawks in trade involving Jared Cunningham, Lucas Nogueira and Shane Larkin.
