DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks turned their first-round pick and guard Kelenna Azubuike in Thursday's NBA Draft into three players.
Earlier Thursday night, the Mavs traded the draft rights to the No. 17th pick -- North Carolina center Tyler Zeller -- and Azubuike to the Cavs for the 24th, 33rd and 34th picks. The Cavs drafted Oregon State shooting guard Jared Cunningham with the 24th pick, then used the 33rd pick to draft 27-year old Florida State power forward Bernard James, and the 34th pick to draft Marquette small forward Jae Crowder.
Jones, who spent six years in the Air Force, averaged 10.8 points and 8.1 rebounds this past year. Meanwhile, Crowder averaged 17.5 points and 8.4 rebounds last season for Marquette, and Cunninghame averaged 17.9 points this past year for Oregon State.
