Boston gave up the No.16 pick and two future second-rounders in exchange for Olynyk.
Dallas needed to trade this pick to try to retain as much cap space as possible to try to lure Dwight Howard to sign. Shawn Marion was rumored to be on the trading block as well.
Olynyk is a skilled big man that can knock down mid-range jump shots with regularity. He has great scoring instincts, but more impressively, he is a willing passer and efficient.
