After the 2010 Draft

Deals after the 1st Round of NBA Draft:

The Dallas Mavericks have pick up Dominique Jones from Memphis who drafted him with the 25th pick in the NBA draft.
The Mavericks with a $3 million dollar salary cap exception used cash to secure the services Jones from Memphis, who had three first-round picks. Dallas had the 50th overall pick Thursday night.

The Raptors make a deal for 7’1 centre Soloman Alabi from the Dallas Mavericks for a future 2nd round pick. It would appear the Raptors are preparing for life without Chris Bosh as they pick up Ed Davis a left handed power forward just like Chris Bosh.

Scouting report on Alabi is:

Size: 7-1, 250

School: Florida State, Sophomore

• Size that every NBA team covets
• Extrememly long
• Shot blocking
• Alters a lot of shots in the paint
• Effectively uses hook shot
• Above average athleticism for a 7-footer
• Has showed steady improvement in his two years at Florida State
• Great upside


• Offensive game is still very raw

50th pick 2010 acquired from Dallas for future 2nd rounder

• Must work on his mid-range/face-up game
• Looks uncomfortable when the ball is in his hands on the perimeter
• Sometimes over-aggressive as a shot blocker leaving the weak side open

• Needs to get stronger
• Footwork needs to improve on both ends especially defensively when guarding outside the paint

• Will have to become better in pick and roll situations


Probably will not be ready to contribute in the NBA right away, but his potential and size will likely get him several late first-round looks.

On the other hand I believe Ed Davis will be ready right away. So the next question is who will be our starting point guard next year?

Possible replacement for Chris Bosh?
