Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said Tuesday that he would consider drafting Baylor’s Brittney Griner in the second round of the 2013 draft or including the three-time first-team All-American center on his organization’s Summer League roster. ESPNDallas.com reports
that Cuban has apparently given the idea some serious consideration.
“If she is the best on the board, I will take her,” Cuban said before the Mavs’ Tuesday night game against the Los Angeles Lakers. “I’ve thought about it. I’ve thought about it already. Would I do it? Right now, I’d lean toward yes, just to see if she can do it. You never know unless you give somebody a chance, and it’s not like the likelihood of any late-50s draft pick has a good chance of making it.”
“She’d still have to make the team,” Cuban said. “I’m not going to carry her just to carry her. I don’t think, anyways. But I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to giving her the opportunity.”
