DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks went presidential in Thursday's NBA Draft.
With the 24th pick of the draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers picked Oregon State shooting guard Jared Cunningham. The Cavs were picking for the Mavs, who traded the draft rights to No. 17th pick Tyler Zeller to the Cavs for the 24th, 33rd and 34th picks of Thursday's draft.
The 6-4, 194-pound Cunningham played his college ball for coach Craig Robinson, who is the brother-in-law of President Barack Obama. This past season Cunningham averaged 17.9 points while leading the Pac-12 in steals -- for the second year in a row -- at 2.53 per game.
