Mavs still at 50, Roddy's going nowhere

By Jeff Caplan

DALLAS -- Donnie Nelson just finished his pre-draft interview session sans any suprises. The Mavericks are holding onto the No. 50 pick -- at least for now. Nelson said contingency plans are in place in case a coveted player becomes available, but he expects the Mavs to take the best available player much later this evening.

Nelson said the phone lines have been busy today with teams asking about the availability of players on the roster, and in particular Roddy Beaubois. Nelson said the young guard isn't going anywhere.

"We've had some unusually attractive offers for Roddy," Nelson said.

But, nothing that would change the Mavs' stance.

"Roddy's not going anywhere," Nelson said.
