With the 2013 NBA draft just 10 days away, 28 NBA teams are preparing for the offseason's biggest night, and the other two will join them soon once their quest for a championship is completed.
Although there are certainly some high-quality players available, many are regarding the 2013 draft class to be one of the weakest in recent memory.
The Dallas Mavericks could have used a stronger one.
After missing the playoffs for the first time in 13 seasons, the Mavericks are in need of more pieces if they want to get back into the playoffs, much less the NBA Finals.
Ever since the lottery balls didn't fall their way, there have been rumors that the team is looking to shop their 13th overall pick to the highest bidder to save cap room to go after high-profile free agents.
At the tail end of the lottery, the 13th pick still has a high value, and there likely will be plenty of teams inquiring about that pick in the next week and a half and on draft night itself.
