Mavs swap picks to get Luka Doncic

NESN.com's NBA Draft coverage is presented by Cross Insurance. Without even playing one regular season game in UCLA, he was withdrawn by his father from the storied program this past December after being indefinitely suspended by the team following a shoplifting incident during an official school travel to China on November 2017. We've got to prepare him for the long haul.

The Dallas Mavericks' big draft-day trade has already been met with approval from one of their key players.

The Mavericks will also send a protected 2019 first-round pick to the Hawks as part of the deal. Young might end up being a better player than Doncic. He can score from everywhere on the floor, is an incredible playmaker for his teammates, and is the flawless guy to change the culture for the Mavericks.

Dallas had been keen on Doncic during the workouts and there was some chatter prior to the draft they were looking at trading up in the draft. I have a feeling some players will be a lot less kind than Iguodala when talking about his mother.

No. 5. Dallas Mavericks: Mohamed Bamba, Texas The Mavs need defensive help and the 7-0 freshman center from the Westttown School fills that need.

But that's what most experts say about European players, right? Bridges shot 44% from behind the three-point line and will quickly earn a starting spot for his two-way abilities. Dallas also got Ray Spalding of Louisville at No. 56, another pick originally belonging to Philadelphia. Okobo is a solid creator and a volume scorer that will get a chance to develop as Phoenix rebuilds. He was the 60th and final pick of the draft.

No. 28: Golden State Warriors: Kevin Huerter, Maryland: Warriors coach Steve Kerr wants to get younger and a player who can contribute right away. "Having all that confidence and leading up to that point when I saw Adam Silver came out, I was just waiting for my name, and when he called it, my mind went blank". They are essentially positionless: Matthews.

Michael Porter Jr possesses top-three pick talent but he dropped to number 14 with the Denver Nuggets due to questions about his health. It seems likely that both will handle the ball, but Doncic will be considered the shooting guard. Doncic, a playmaking 6-foot-8 guard, is one of the most accomplished European prospects ever to enter in the National Basketball Association. Portland is ran by the backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, two of the most talented guard in the league.
