DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks have acquired Dominique Jones from Memphis after the Grizzlies took him with the 25th pick in the NBA draft.
The Mavericks used cash to pry Jones from Memphis, which had two other first-round picks. Dallas still had the 50th overall pick Thursday night.
The amount of money was not immediately disclosed, but likely was around the league's $3 million maximum.
Jones is a 6-foot-5, 216-pound guard who left South Florida after his junior year. He was a first-team All-Big East selection, averaging 21.4 points per game last season.
Team owner Mark Cuban tweeted: "We tried to trade into the top20 to get (Jones), got lucky to get him 25."
