LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he would consider drafting Baylor All-American Brittney Griner.
Cuban told reporters before Tuesday night's game between the Mavericks and the Lakers that if Griner is the best player available, ``I will take her.''
The 6-foot-8 Griner finished her college career as the NCAA leader in blocked shots and the second-leading scorer in women's college basketball history.
Cuban says he has already thought about it and ``Right now, I'd lean towards yes, just to see if she can do it. You never know unless you give somebody a chance.''
Cuban said Griner would have to make the team and he isn't ``opposed to giving her the opportunity.''
He adds: ``That'd sell out a few games.''
