"He finished two days ago in a season that started back in September", Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said.

Deandre Ayton became the first No. 1 Sun and Luka Doncic was traded only a day after arriving in the U.S.

The obtain Luka the Mavs dealt their first round selection, No. 5 overall, and sent it to Atlanta in exchange for the rights to Doncic, who was selected with the third pick; the deal went through as long as the Mavs could select Oklahoma guard Trae Young.

"This kid has really carved out an wonderful record of accomplishments", Carlisle said.

"Yes, he has a lot of Steve Nash in him", Cuban agreed. Atlanta then follows up picking Young (who is not a terrible pick but is very risky) by selecting Kevin Huerter.

But this ball whiz from the capital city of Ljubljana has extra sauce, gushing with All-Star potential. He was arguably the best European prospect to ever enter the draft, and at just 19 years old helped Real Madrid win titles in the Spanish League and EuroLeague, while being named MVP of the Spanish League, EuroLeague and EuroLeague Final Four.

Doncic will also be paired with Dallas sophomore, Dennis Smith Jr.to form a young, dynamic backcourt.

"The Mavericks have been talking to me".

"I think it's a transformational class", Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. said. As an global prospect Doncic will need a lot of support and a good coaching staff willing to put him in the best possible position to succeed. "They were so nice to me".

Trump wants those who 'invade' sent right back
The majority of children separated from parents are in the care of HHS - and there's no real plan as for how to reunite them. He focused on the fact that young migrants separated from parents are likely to be reunited, unlike the victims of murders.

In doing so he averaged 14.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists in 25 minutes over 61 total games. However, his defensive game at that spot will need some work.

But that's what most experts say about European players, right?

An accomplished scorer, Doncic possesses tremendous potential.

Is Dallas, which carded a disappointing 24-58 record this past season, a playoffs team in the 2017-18 season? "That's the same mindset I'm going to have", Knox said. "You don't see that in a lot of guys and he possesses that".

Compare that to the situation Doncic is walking into in Dallas.

But I have a feeling Cuban will make more moves when free agency rolls along this July. "I'm not sure what position he is".

The final pick of the draft was Kostas Antetokounmpo, who is the younger brother of Milwaukee superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and was picked by Philadelphia.

Blue and burgundy appear to be the colors of choice at this year's draft. Based on Pelton's calculations, which take into account age and how other European prospects' statistics have translated to National Basketball Association production, Doncic's WARP projection isn't just higher than Ricky Rubio's and Nikola Jokic's - it's also the highest projection on record, even besting that of a young Anthony Davis.

No. 21: Utah Jazz: Omari Spellman, Villanova A bit of a gamble this here, but the upside is that Spellman is 6-9, only 20 years old, shot 43.3 percent from 3-point range and blocked 59 shots, which makes him the ideal stretch four.
