Dallas Mavericks Notes, Quotes 2008-06-13

Dallas Mavericks Notes, Quotes 2008-06-13
--Rick Carlisle believes the team can find value with its second-round pick (51st overall) later this month. Reyshawn Terry and Renaldas Seibutis, two swingmen with a chance to be on the roster this season, were drafted 44th and 50th, respectively, last year.

"There's no doubt the draft is deep," Carlisle said. "We feel like at 51 we're getting somebody that has a chance to make the roster either this year or next year. It may be a European that stays over there. Donnie (Nelson) and (director of scouting Amadou Gallo Fall) do such a great job of scouring the whole universe, so it should be exciting."

Carlisle also didn't rule out trying to get into the first round. Terry and Seibutis are getting a head start on summer league. Both will be working out in Dallas long before practices start.

"They're going be around for summer league so we're going to have a lot of time to make decisions," said Carlisle, who plans to spend considerable time at summer league.

--The Mavs' D-League affiliate is on the move once again. After a year with Tulsa and two in Fort Worth, the Albuquerque Thunderbirds will be the new training stop for those Mavs not quite ready for prime time.

"The Dallas Mavericks are excited about our new affiliation with the Albuquerque Thunderbirds," president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said. "They are a terrific organization and we look forward to sending our young up-and-coming players there to develop this season."

The other team (Miami) sharing the New Mexico outpost is the franchise that denied the Mavs the NBA title two years ago. For the first time since the D-League's inception seven years ago, each team is affiliated with a maximum of two NBA teams.

The Mavs have used the D-League extensively in several years, sending down players such as Maurice Ager, Jose Barea and Nick Fazekas.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "There's no way on God's green Earth that David Stern has ever done anything to influence the outcome of a game." -- Mark Cuban, on Tim Donaghy's claim that NBA games were fixed.
