Hawks draft Slovenia's 'Wonder Boy' Doncic, trade him to Mavs
02 July, 2018, 10:39 | Author: Greg Lawrence
On Thursday, the Mavericks seemed to have found what they are looking for in Slovenian Luka Doncic.
Dallas will nearly certainly start these four players: Dennis Smith, Wesley Matthews, Harrison Barnes, and Doncic. With so many draft picks, Schlenk said last week he was entertaining numerous trade offers. While it remains to be seen what level of production he'll bring, Doncic is a solid mid- to late-round draft addition if you're willing to take the risk. In 2018 He led Real Madrid to the EuroLeague title while becoming the youngest player to ever win MVP of the Euroleague as well as the EuroLeague Final Four MVP. The 6-foot-11 forward was among the possible candidates to go number 1, but a nagging back injury preventedother squads from taking the hazard of selecting him.
Of course, Young will have to do that while directly in the shadow of Doncic in the eyes of Hawks fans.
Doncic, who can play as point guard or shooting guard, was picked third by the Atlanta Hawks but was then traded to the Mavericks for Trae Young, who was chosen with the fifth pick.
Atlanta will also receive a protected 2019 first round pick. Antetokounmpo, younger brother of National Basketball Association star Giannis, did not dominate in his only year at Dayton but Dallas will make the 6'10 forward a project they will try to develop.

It is the first time since 1938 that a Germany or West Germany side has not progressed beyond the first section of the tournament. They'll play the winners of group H - one of Japan, Senegal and Colombia - in Moscow on Tuesday, kick-off 7pm.
Editors note: It has been confirmed that Luka Doncic will not play in summer league will the Mavs.
You might be asking yourself, what wonderful bounty did the Hawks get in return for Luka Doncic, perhaps a player with the highest floor and perhaps the highest ceiling in this draft? With that said, Sports World News will take a much deeper look at the biggest winners and losers of the draft. I have a feeling some players will be a lot less kind than Iguodala when talking about his mother. Robinson dominated at Boston College but there were definitely players with more upside than him.
The Mavericks are coming off consecutive losing seasons for the first time in almost 20 years, back when Nowitzki ended up being the centerpiece of a rebuilding project that led to 12 straight trips to the playoffs and the franchise's only championship in 2011. He also had "They will know your name" stitched on the inside of his jacket.
The talented crop of drafts will be hoping to make as big an impact on the league as Aussie Ben Simmons did this season alongside fellow rookies Donovan Mitchell and Jason Tatum.
It is unclear if interim coach Fernando Hierro will continue in a job he did not seek before Julen Lopetegui was sent home. That was his last significant action as Spain's final throw of the dice saw Asensio replaced by Rodrigo.

The 26-year-old requested that the Spurs trade him, with Leonard open to joining the Lakers or Clippers. James and George would be an ideal match for each other if they were to sign with the same team.
The Tennis Integrity Unit said Kicker can reduce his ban to three years if he "commits no further breaches". Kyrgios, who also looked to be struggling with injury, beat Murray for the first time in six attempts.
Spain dominated the match in terms of possession and territorial domination but posed very little threat to the host nation. Spain were knocked out of at the round of 16 stage following Sunday's penalty shootout loss to Russian Federation .
