Mavs take 7-foot Purdue center A.J. Hammons with 46th pick

DALLAS (AP) The Mavericks need a starting center and figure to use free agency to find one.

That didn't stop Dallas from taking 7-footer A.J. Hammons from Purdue with the 46th overall pick in the middle of the second round of the NBA draft on Thursday night.

Hammons played all four years with the Boilermakers, averaging 15 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game as a senior. He joins a mostly wide open position battle, depending on who the Mavericks add when free agency opens July 1.
