Mavs GM Donnie Nelson said the team is not interested in trading the No.5 overall pick
"I don't think we'll look to trade out of the draft. We're excited about the young nucleus with Dennis Smith, and obviously Harrison kind of grabbing the torch and providing the leadership role that Dirk has provided over the years," said Nelson. "We're excited about getting another young, impact guy we can add to the mix." While Dirk Nowitzki is returning for another season, the Mavs are knocking on the front door of a rebuild and are intrigued by the idea of having another young prospect to build their core around.
