The NBA's version of American Idol will begin later this week in Las Vegas when the summer league cranks up.
The Mavericks have an interesting roster, which includes first-round draftee Roddy Beaubois and a few intriguing other names.
One that you won't recognize on the list below is Moussa Seck, but let me assure you of one thing. After meeting him over the weekend, I can assure you that this is one tall, skinny dude.
He's probably a few years away from being NBA-ready. But he's got that one thing that no coach can teach. We've got a photo that we'll try to dig up and post ASAP.
By the way, not all of these players will go to Vegas. Some will be cut before the team leaves.
