DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - When you take a look back at the results of previous NBA Drafts, history shows you can find a star player in the second round. The Mavericks will look to do just that when they make the No. 37 selection tonight.

Among the notable players to be selected in the second round include Nikola Jokic (41), Goran Dragic (45), Marc Gasol (48), Khris Middleton (39), Draymond Green (35) and DeAndre Jordan (35).

Who could the Mavericks be targeting? Here are some potential candidates:

Dylan Windler 

SF

6'8"

Belmont 

The Belmont sharpshooter could be around when the Mavericks make their pick at 37. According to NBAdraft.net's scouting outlook, "Windler's ceiling may not peg him as a future All-Star, but a wing with his long-range skill and experience playing in a fast-paced system project him as someone who could potentially be added to a team and impact the second unit right way."

Windler, who is widely seen as one of the best shooters in the draft, averaged 21.3 points per game and shot 43 percent from three-point range. Windler, 22, also averaged 10.8 rebounds per game. 

Darius Bazley

SF/PF

6'9"

USA

The former All-American elected to sit out all of last season rather than play for Jim Boeheim at Syracuse. Bazley is best known for his athleticism and inside scoring ability. He could sneak into the first round.

Carsen Edwards

PG

6'1"

Purdue

Matt Norlander, CBS Sports: "It won't be just his absurd run in the NCAA Tournament that will get Edwards drafted in the 30s. I can assure you the combo guard won over every pre-draft interview he had with teams. Edwards plays three inches taller and 15 pounds heavier than he is. Major question with Edwards is how he integrates into an offense when he was so ball dominant the past two years at Purdue."

Naz Reid

C

6'10"

LSU

NBAdraft.net's outlook: Naz is seen by a "boom or bust" wild card by scouts as some aren't sold on his toughness and dedication to the game ... He has a wide range of projections entering the draft process ... He is probably a bit more team fit dependent than other draft prospects ... Reid has to be drafted to a team that has patience and gives him the availability to progress and also feel comfortable enough to put his guard down and develop relationships with the staff ... Reid is without a doubt is a first round talent, but his inconsistency puts his draft range in question.

Chuma Okeke

SF/PW

6'8"

Auburn

NBAdraft.net's outlook: Okeke is an athletic forward with a long wingspan. He could be an ideal 3 and D player in the NBA at worst. If he improves his ability to score off the dribble, he can evolve into an NBA star. Coming off an ACL tear, teams need to see how his recovery is going in order to use their draft pick on him.
