Although Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said just days ago that they had not had a single conversation about trading the 13th overall pick in this week’s 2013 NBA Draft, pretty much everybody knew that was a load of crap.
The Mavericks have been literally asking teams to take the #13 pick along with Marion’s contract and despite not finding many suitors, ask around enough and you might get lucky.
According to a report from Fletcher Mackel, the Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans might be nearing a draft night trade.

It’s been reported that the Mavericks also asked the Cleveland Cavaliers to take Marion along with the #13 pick and a future second rounder, but were denied when the Mavs requested a future first round pick in return.
