And, actually, raining on the Mavericks' lottery pick parade is hardly my intention.But perhaps a touch of sobriety while toasting the winners of the Luka Doncic derby is in order.The European shooting guard came at a high price. If reports are true that the Mavericks refused to put Wesley Matthews in the deal and were all too willing to send a first-round pick to Atlanta instead, I don't see how that fits a team just getting started on a serious rebuild.

After dedicating court with his number on it, Wesley Matthews tells why next offseason won't be this long

Wesley Matthews has had too much to do this summer to be bored -- rehabbing a broken leg foremost among the work.But even so, he's tired of the offseason - and it hasn't even started for two teams still playing in the NBA finals.Matthews on Wednesday was at BridgeBuilders in south Dallas, an urban missionary organization that addresses poverty in low-income areas. The Mavericks dedicated an indoor court for the facility - the 24th court they've built for the betterment of the community since 1996.It's something that makes Matthews smile. Except for one thing."I don't want another long...

Harrison Barnes and Wesley Matthews have been solid contributors.It's just that the Mavericks haven't been able to hit on the hot item that everybody wants, one that would help push their rebuilding process ahead exponentially.This year, owner Mark Cuban has pledged to spend the money that the Mavericks figure to have - likely somewhere...
