NBA Mock Draft: Dallas Mavericks Select R.J. Hunter From Georgia State

SB Nation's NBA Network conducted a mock draft with bloggers from each team site making or trading "their" team's pick. We continue with the next pick in the 2015 NBA Mock Draft, with Mavs Moneyball selecting R.J. Hunter from Georgia State.

NBA Mock Draft Pick #21 -- R.J. Hunter, Forward, Georgia State

SB Nation's Mavericks blog, Mavs Moneyball, explains the pick:

With the 21st pick in the draft, the faux-Mavericks select the very real prospect that is R.J. Hunter.

This is a guy we've been targeting all along. Dallas needs shooting and, with Monta Ellis likely leaving, a secondary playmaker to handle the ball. We like several other players still on the board -- Trey Lyles and Sam Dekker have both fallen, in our eyes -- but Hunter is the pick. Had Hunter been taken a pick or two before, we may have pushed harder to shed Raymond Felton's expiring contract while trading down. Fortunately, our guy is still on the board and it was impossible not to pull the trigger.
