07:12 AM ET 06.19 | With a perfectly acceptable spot in the draft -- their highest in more than a decade -- the Mavericks are strongly thinking about moving it. And "strongly" means it is a virtual certainty. One source put the chances of the Mavericks having the 13th overall draft pick on their opening-day roster next season at 0 percent. There is an 80-percent chance that the pick is traded before or, more likely, during the draft, the source said. There is at least a 15-percent chance that the pick is a foreign player who is under contract and can be left overseas for a year and not count against the Mavericks' salary cap. There is less than a 5 percent chance that one of the top five or six players in the draft slips to No. 13 and the Mavericks take him.

Bynum is broken, Cubes would be a fool like Philly to waste any salary on him. It's D12 or bust.

JJ is the master of turning a championship team into a mediocre one.
