Selected fourth overall by the Mavericks in 1993, Mashburn led all rookies with 19.2 points per game and broke seven franchise rookie records. In his second season, along with Jim Jackson and rookie Jason Kidd, Mashburn helped the Mavs go 36-46 after finishing 13-69 the previous season. Mashburn, who was hindered by injuries, was traded to the Heat in the middle of the 1996-97 season.
