DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – Nothing like being drafted by an NBA team and the being immediately traded – but that is exactly what happened to 27 year old Florida State power forward Bernard James.

In the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft James was picked by the Cleveland Cavaliers then immediately traded to the Mavs.

How does he feel about being a Dallas Maverick and what does he think he can bring to the table? James spoke with The Fan’s Elf & Slater.
