Mark Cuban Sounds Like He’d Like to Draft Brittney Griner

By / 04.03.13

Cuban said he’s serious about the possibility of bringing in Baylor’s 6-8 star now that her college eligibility is done.

If she’s the best on the board, we’ll take her,” Cuban said. “If we have the 60th pick and she’s on the board, we still might take her.”

The quick reaction to Cuban’s comments is that this is a publicity stunt that he would even think seriously about Griner, who dominated the women’s game at the college level.

But he promises he’s not simply blowing smoke.

“I’ve thought about it already,” he said. “Would I do it? And right now, I’d lean toward yes, just to see if she can do it.

“You never know until you give someone a chance. And it’s not like the likelihood of any late-50s draft pick has a good chance of making it. If we had tryouts, I would have no problem inviting her to work out and see how she did. No problem whatsoever.”

Let’s allow ourselves to dream here. What is the BEST-CASE scenario for this grand experiment? Seems pretty goddamned far-fetched to me.
