NBA Draft 2011: The Dallas Mavericks Get an Absolute Steal in Jordan Hamilton

The Dallas Mavericks just selected Jordan Hamilton with the 26th overall pick, and this is an absolute steal. ESPN analyst Jay Bilas had Hamilton rated as the ninth-best prospect, and ESPN NBA Draft analyst Chad Ford had Hamilton rated as the 16th-best.

Just comparing this pick to the projections by Bilas and Ford makes this a great pick for the Mavericks.

Hamilton is a good shooter and a solid rebounder for his position and has good upside. The Mavs don't really need an impact player, and they added solid depth with this pick. Now the Mavs just need to resign Tyson Chandler and J.J. Barea and they will be set.
