Luka Doncic at forefront for Atlanta Hawks at 3rd overall

A closeup of Trae Young in an Oklahoma uniform VIDEO: Luka Doncic Explains Why His Favorite Player in NBA Is LeBron James

Former Oklahoma point guard Trae Young was selected by the Dallas Mavericks with the No. 5 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft Thursday, then moments later was traded to the Atlanta Hawks.

The Mavericks held the No. 5 pick in the draft and agreed to a trade with Atlanta.

Johnson was the Nets' coach when they moved to Brooklyn in 2012 but was sacked with a 14-14 record early in that first season shortly after they were blown out at home by Boston in a nationally televised Christmas Day game.

For weeks, we heard how much the Dallas Mavericks wanted to trade up to select Luka Doncic, and they did just that.

No one has a clue whether this Euro can actually play in the USA; at this point, no one has a clue as to Doncic's height.

"[The Mavericks have] been talking to me", Doncic said on the broadcast after being selected.

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.

He eventually ended up at Alabama and coached here last season when the Crimson Tide played in the Barclays Center Classic.

At just 19, the 6-7 combo guard became the youngest player to win the Liga ACB MVP, the EuroLeague MVP and the EuroLeague Final Four MVP. "Obviously, he gets a lot of notoriety for his long-range shooting, but his ability to pass the ball is what we really like about him".

"I've been talking to Dallas a lot".

"I think it's a transformational class", Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. said. Huerter made 42 percent of his 3-point shots as a sophomore last season at Maryland while averaging 14.8 points per game. After the game - and with plenty of questions about his likely National Basketball Association destinations swirling - Doncic wouldn't commit to coming to the USA immediately. He teamed with Miami's Goran Dragic to lead Slovenia to a surprising gold medal at FIBA EuroBasket 2017.

He may be young, but the precocious talent has been playing professional basketball in the EuroLeague as a member of Real Madrid for the past four seasons. The Hawks were in need of the best player available, which Doncic certainly would have been at #3 overall.

"Do you see Steve Nash Part Two in Doncic?"

"Whatever city I went to, I was going to be able to be comfortable in", said Young, who wore suit shorts with his burgundy-colored jacket.
