NBA Draft 2018: Who Are The Biggest Winners And Losers?

NBA Draft 2018 live results

Doncic confirmed after the Hawks drafted him that the Mavs have been in discussions with him, although the trade has yet to be announced.

Though we're still in knee-jerk reaction territory, this already looks to be a huge misstep by Hawks brass, as Doncic projects to be one of the best players in this draft - if not the best.

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

Doncic had been in the running to be the No. 1 overall pick, but the Suns ultimately opted for Arizona big man Deandre Ayton to open the night.

"I'm not going to make the same mistake we did 20 years ago, because (Doncic, like Nowitzki at the time) is a 19-year old kid that is going to have his rear end handed to him", said Donnie Nelson, the Mavs' president of basketball operations.

Nonetheless, all the risk might pay off in the long run, as Doncic has managed to exceed everyone's expectations at such a young age.

The Hawks drafted guard Luka Doncic of Slovenia with the No. 3 overall pick and then traded rights to Doncic to Dallas for rights to Young, the No. 5 overall pick, and a 2019 first-round pick.

The president was met with open arms in a state where he had previously won the presidential election by a whopping 36 points. He accused Heitkamp of working hand-in-hand with Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and Pelosi. "She'll be told to".


Doncic enters the National Basketball Association as one of the most accomplished National Basketball Association players in a long time.

This is not the first time the Hawks have quickly traded the No. 3 overall pick. "Most NBA execs will get over to Europe once or twice, and what if you happen to fall on one or two bad games?"

"He may be the most accomplished European teenager to ever come into the draft", ESPN draft analyst Jay Bilas said. "They were very nice to me, and I think we had a very good relationship". Most list him at around 6-foot-7.

"I mean, you know, I have a lot of ex-NBA players on my team".

No. 26. 76ers: Kyhri Thomas, Creighton As Villanova fans can attest, the 6-4, 200-pound Thomas is a rugged combo guard who can defend (two-time Big East Defensive Player of the Year) and make the three (40.6 percent for his career). They then follow that pick up by selecting another guard in Jerome Robinson.

No. 28: Golden State Warriors: Kevin Huerter, Maryland: Warriors coach Steve Kerr wants to get younger and a player who can contribute right away.
