DALLAS The Dallas Mavericks used the draft to Asset-Manage their way to 1.4 million in cap savings, to get three rookies who coach Rick Carlisle says can all make the team due to their 'high motors and high character,' and who do come to Dallas with credentials that suggest they all do at least one thing very well.
