Atlanta then follows up picking Young (who is not a frightful pick but is very risky) by selecting Kevin Huerter. The Dallas Mavericks looked all the way to Slovenia for the player they hope can be their next European superstar.
Doncic was Atlanta's highest draft pick since 2007, when center Al Horford was the No. 3 pick.
In securing the rights to the No.3 pick Doncic, the Mavericks surrendered their rights to No.5 pick Trae Young, an explosive scorer out of Oklahoma known for his unlimited range, plus a lightly protected first-round pick in the 2019 draft. I've played against a lot of ex-NBA players, and I've had some great teammates. This had involved the 19-year-old being heavily involved him leading the charge. "I think his position is on the floor, making plays and making people better".
Young was the first player to lead college basketball in scoring (27.4) and assists (8.7) last season as a freshman at OU.
"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.
"When I came up I was playing with older guys and saw that maybe I could be somebody", Doncic said. The Mavericks acquired Nowitzki during the 1998 draft, trading down to get the 7-footer who was taken ninth overall by Milwaukee.

Doncic couldn't join Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III and the other headliners in NY on Wednesday because he was en route from Spain after finishing off his dream season by helping Real Madrid win its ACB league championship on Tuesday. But they ended up disappointed as NY went with Kentucky's Kevin Knox.
"I have been waiting for this night my whole life, it's insane", Young said in the OU release. "Right now, I just want to celebrate with my team". If they can get a valued piece or two and their starters can stay healthy, the sky is the limit for these Mavericks.
The Suns also got a solid pick in the second round by picking up French point guard Elie Okobo.
With their second of three first-round picks, the Hawks selected shooting guard Kevin Huerter of Maryland at No. 19 overall.
No. 23. Indiana Pacers: Elie Okobo, France An athletic, left-handed point guard with National Basketball Association 3-point range.

Pique scored via the inside of the post and Ignashevish, whose own goal had given Spain the lead, then sent De Gea the wrong way. Spain starting XI: De Gea; Nacho, Pique, Ramos, Alba, Koke, Busquets, Silva, Isco, Asensio, Costa.
Therefore, it seems as though there's very little potential for any negative drama to happen between the two moving forward. Both players still have to decide if they want to opt out of the final year of their respective contracts.
