FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – After what’s been a relatively quiet few weeks on the Mavs front, all of a sudden there’s a tidal wave of Mavtastic goodness coming our way: Dallas has the 17th pick in tonight’s draft, a chance to get a REALLY good player.

NBA free agency begins this weekend, who is going where?

Delonte West tweets pleas to Deron Williams to come to Dallas.

Williams, in turn played a round of 18 with Jason Kidd today in East Hampton and subsequently tweeted “let the speculation begin???”.  Kidd tweeted “since you won that means we’re going to…………”.

How great is this?

We are covering the Mavs tonight on TXA21’s The Fan Sports Show like a wet blanket. We’re live from the Mavs Old #7 Club in the AAC (aka draft night ground zero) for the full hour.  Steve Dennis joins me for the whole show.  You’ll hear extended interviews from Mavs GM Donnie Nelson and head coach Rick Carlisle.  The Star-Telegram’s Dwain Price,’s Mike Fisher, and’s Earl Sneed all join us for the most comprehensive NBA draft coverage in North Texas on television.

You should, too, starting at 6:30 on TXA21.
