Moving on to the next team in this series, it is now time to take a look at the Dallas Mavericks' ten best draft choices since 1990. Out of all the teams done so far, this list seems to have the least talent particularly at the bottom.

Keep in mind that these are subjective lists. In order to make the list, the player must have actually been drafted by Dallas (Dirk Nowitzki would be the clear leader of this list except he was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks and acquired by the Mavericks later that night). Only the player's impact while with the Mavericks is considered. Where the player was drafted is also placed in consideration meaning this isn't exactly a top-ten players drafted by Dallas since 1990 list (if a 29th overall pick had about the same impact as a fifth overall pick, then the 29th overall pick will be higher).

All Mavericks draft picks were found at Basketball Reference.

1

Jason Kidd - 1st round, Second overall (1994)

Kidd played parts of eight seasons (over two stints) with the Mavericks, was named an All-Star twice, and won an NBA championship in 2011.

2

Josh Howard - 1st round, 29th overall (2003)

Playing 431 games with the Mavericks, Howard was named an All-Star in the 2006-07 season and posted averages of 15.3 points and six rebounds with Dallas.
