Shane Larkin: I Hope To Be In A Mavs Jersey


The Dallas Mavericks were very active on draft night moving all over the place to try and save cap space to make a run at Dwight Howard in free agency this summer. They moved down and acquired Miami Hurricanes point guard Shane Larkin.

In a teleconference Shane Larkin talked about Dwight Howard to the Mavs, rooting for the Mavs against the Heat in 2011 and wanting to play along side. Larkin is an Orlando native and said that Dallas was one of the places he really wanted to land.

Larkin though has been the subject of trade rumors and could be shipped out of town before he ever plays for Dallas.

He also is excited about the prospect of playing along side Dwight Howard.

If the Mavs do sign or acquire a more veteran point guard, Larkin is alright with learning.
