After trading the 13th pick (Kelly Olynyk) to Boston and the 16th pick (Lucas Nogueira), Jared Cunningham, and the 44th pick to Atlanta, the Mavs take 20-year-old Miami point guard Shane Larkin with the 18th pick from Atlanta.
The Mavs essentially got Larkin for Jared Cunningham's contract, so they have saved approximately $400,000 dollars by trading back twice. If the Mavs renouncing OJ, this gives them almost exactly $19 million in cap space, about $1 million short of Dwight money.

Mavs actually saved closer to $200,00 dollars. With the trade of Cunningham, the Mavs have incurred an approximate $500,000 roster charge, though there is close to a $200,000 difference between Cunningham and Larkin's contracts. This would put the Mavs at about $18.7 million if OJ is renounced.
