  9. Second Round, First Priority: Ricky Ledo and Exploiting the CBA's...

    Zach Lowe

    Ricky Ledo's contract negotiations were going badly. Which sounds a little ridiculous. The Mavs selected Ledo with the 43rd pick in the draft, meaning he was a second-rounder with very little leverage and almost certainly no place else to go if he wi...

    netw3rk
