OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks have swapped their draft picks from late in the first round.
The Thunder will get 7-foot center B.J. Mullens from Ohio State in exchange for point guard Rodrigue Beaubois from Guadaloupe and a
future second-round pick.
NBA deputy commissioner Adam Silver announced the trade Thursday
Dallas had taken Mullens at No. 24, and Beaubois went to Oklahoma City with the very next pick.
Mullens averaged 8.8 points and 5.7 rebounds in his only year of college before making an early entry into the NBA draft. Beaubois has been playing in the French Pro A league the past three years after being discovered by NBA player Mickael Pietrus, who is from the same Caribbean island.
