  • VIDEO: Luka Doncic Explains Why His Favorite Player in NBA Is LeBron James

The Dallas Mavericks acquired the 3rd overall pick, which was used on Luka Doncic, from the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for the 5th overall pick and a future first-rounder, according to multiple reports. Doncic is a possible pick in Thursday's NBA Draft. The 19-year-old Doncic has already bagged the EuroLeague Most Valuable Player plum and the EuroLeague Final Four MVP.

Then it was another guard with Alabama's Collin Sexton going at No. 8 to Cleveland, triggering chants of Michael Porter Jr.'s name by Knicks fans who hoped they would take him with the No. 9 pick.

Two days before Thursday's draft, Docic's European League team, Real Madrid, defeated Kirolbet Baskonia for the Spanish Liga ACB title. The Hawks chose Oklahoma guard Trae Young with the 5th pick. They have four of the top 34 draft picks, so they must use this currency wisely. The Mavs want Doncic and might try to move up out of the fifth spot to get him.

This marks the seventh time in the last 13 drafts that at least one player has gone in the top five and will be entering the National Basketball Association directly from an global team. Still, young Luka will be playing with a little extra motivation when he gets his first crack at the defending champs - well, one of them, at least.

The deal also includes the Mavs' sending Atlanta a protected first round pick in 2019. Robinson dominated at Boston College but there were definitely players with more upside than him.

Draft night will be a celebratory one for the Alabama coach, who is seated at the green room table of star Crimson Tide point guard Collin Sexton. But they ended up disappointed as NY went with Kentucky's Kevin Knox.

No. 18. San Antonio Spurs: Donte DiVincenzo, Villanova The Spurs are a ideal fit for the 6-5 guard who scored 31 points in the national championship game and was named Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four.

"I mean, you know, I have a lot of ex-NBA players on my team". They made a lot of great decisions in their rebuild, and they're now in first place.

"When you have a young guy like Dennis that just went through that, to have a person of Luka's age as well as a guy like Dirk that has seen and done it all in basketball, you get both perspectives and both are extremely valuable", Nelson said. They then follow that pick up by selecting another guard in Jerome Robinson.
