Mavs don't move up in lottery, own 13th pick

By Tim MacMahon

The ping pong balls didn't bounce the Mavericks' way.

The Mavs didn't move up in the NBA draft lottery, so they own the 13th overall pick.

The Mavs had only a 2.2 percent chance of moving into the top three picks, including an 0.6 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick.

While this was the first time Dallas has been in the lottery in a dozen year, it continues a trend for the Mavs. Dallas has never moved up in 12 lottery appearances.
