Sources: Mavericks Sent ‘contingent’ to Meet Frank Ntilikina


If the Knicks pass on French League point guard Frank Ntilikina with the eighth pick, the Mavericks, sitting at No. 9, are interested in the 18-year-old stud.

According to sources, the Mavericks sent out a contingent that featured busy billionaire owner Mark Cuban, general manager Donnie Nelson and director of player personnel Tony Ronzone to Venice, Italy, to have meetings with Ntilikina on Saturday.

There was no workout, but the powwow came on the morning after Ntilikina led his Strasbourg club to the French League final that will all but prevent him from working out in the U.S. with NBA clubs before the draft on June 22.
