NBA Draft Trades Roundup: Here's Every Deal That Went Down

Shortly after the Suns took Deandre Ayton to start the National Basketball Association draft Thursday night, the Mavericks traded up two spots for the rights to Luka Doncic.

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.

Dallas will nearly certainly start these four players: Dennis Smith, Wesley Matthews, Harrison Barnes, and Doncic.

The Dallas Mavericks has been looking for someone to replace their aging superstar Dirk Nowitzki.

The Atlanta Hawks swapped the rights to Doncic, the No. 3 pick who has spent the past year winning championships all over Europe, to Atlanta for Trae Young, the No. 5 selection from Oklahoma.

At 6-foot-7 and 220 pounds, Doncic averaged about 15 points, five rebounds and five assists during Real Madrid's championship season.

We're very fortunate. Luka Doncic is the guy we targeted in this draft if there was any way possible to do it. ...

Cuban wouldn't go into detail as to how exactly the draft night swap with Atlanta played out but he believes "it was a win-win trade for both teams". "So I think we're a great draft, one of the best in a while". Doncic won't turn 20 until after the All-Star break of his rookie season, which is expected to be Nowitzki's record 21st with one franchise.

Getty Luka Doncic is headed to the Dallas Mavericks.

It was obvious that Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala was tuning into the draft, as the 2015 Finals MVP posted a tweet indirectly directed towards Doncic's mother. "That's why I want to remain guarded in my comments".

Mark Cuban and the front office selected Villanova standout Jaylen Brunson with the No. 33 pick, as well as Kostas Antetokounmpo with the final pick in the draft.

Doncic hails from Slovenia, which sits near the Adriatic Sea and is bordered by Italy on the west and Austria on the north. Nowitzki was the last major worldwide draft prospect the Mavericks drafted, which turned out well for the franchise to say the least.
