The Dallas Mavericks worked out 20 draft prospects last week and 11 more are slated for Monday and Tuesday.
The Mavericks pick 50th in Thursday's draft. Five more prospects hit the American Airlines Center practice gym today:
Marquis Gilstrap, 6-7, 215, Iowa State
Notes: Averaged 14.9 points and 9.3 rebounds as a senior. His potential remains untapped because he's played just two full seasons in the last four years. He suffered a broken leg at Palm Springs CC, moved on to Gulf Coast CC and finally to Iowa State. He played mostly power forward for the Cyclones, but his size likely will be an issue at that spot at the next level.
Landry Fields, 6-7, 210, Stanford
Notes: In first year to really showcase his full arsenal, the senior averaged 22.0 points and 8.8 rebounds, plus 2.8 assists and 1.6 steals as a senior. He was an inside/outside mismatch in college. He has excellent length which scouts assert could help him defensively, but his size makes him a classic 'tweener in the NBA. His perimeter game is strong and he could make his mark as a small forward.
Tyler Smith, 6-7, 210, Tennessee
Notes: Averaged 11.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in a shortened senior year after deciding to return to Tennessee instead of turning pro overseas. He is long and quick at small forward and could be a pesky defender in the NBA. He's hoping to overcome an awful decision on New Year's Day when he and three teammates were pulled over speeding. He was charged with possession of a firearm. All four players were suspended from the team following their arrests, and only Smith, a preseason All-American, was dismissed from the team.
Matt Bouldin, 6-5, 214, Gonzaga
Notes: The West Coast Conference player of the year averaged 15.6 points and 4.0 assists as a senior. He started all 33 games last year and 118 in four seasons. He has excellent size to go with his court vision and was just the latest terrific point guard to come through Gonazaga, but the jury is out whether he'll make it at the next level.
Scottie Reynolds, 6-2, 195, Villanova
Notes: Averaged 18.2 points and 3.2 assists and shot 38.5 percent from beyond the 3-point arc as a senior. The Wildcats plummeted at the end of the season and his leadership ability took some knocks. The same concerns that that kept his draft stock low a year ago remain: His low assists totals scare teams as a point guard and he's undersized to play shooting guard in the NBA.
