Why UT-Arlington's Kevin Hervey could be a sneaky Round 2 steal for the Mavericks on draft day

Eddie Sefko, Mavericks beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Here are some highlights:Will Harrison Barnes ever be a true No. 1 scoring option?Sefko: Basically, he doesn't want to be known as the best player on a 24-win team, although that's what he is right now.
