Dallas (KETK) The Mavericks had the 13th pick.
Then they had the 16th pick.
Then they had the 18th pick.
You get the idea.
The Mavs traded down and down in the first round of the NBA Draft Thursday night.
The Mavericks are trying to save money to make a run at Dwight Howard.
Howard reportedly will leave the Lakers. The L.A. center will be a free-agent soon.
Dallas will send Jared Cunningham, the 24th pick last year, to Atlanta for Shane Larkin.
Now we'll see if the Mavs keep him.
