The Mavericks will also send a protected 2019 first-round pick to the Hawks as part of the deal. "Now you're seeing the makings of the stuff that we had back 20 years ago". "He seems like a humble kid that really loves to play, loves the game and was really anxious at that point to finish up his worldwide play on a high note, which they did, and then move to the next stage of his career, which is the National Basketball Association". But especially with players from overseas like Doncic, who many fans haven't seen outside of a few highlight clips here and there.

There was plenty of buzz about Slovenian teenager Luka Doncic leading up to the 2018 NBA Draft, and for good reason.

NBA draft prospect, Trae Young rides the bus to attend the 2018 NBA Draft on June 21, 2018 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Turns out not much, but just enough. He helped Madrid to the EuroLeague and Spanish ACB titles while winning the MVPs of the EuroLeague regular season, the EuroLeague Final Four and the Spanish ACB league. What they were not expected to do was trade him to the Dallas Mavericks.

Doncic started to separate himself in organizational discussions around the choice, an examination that has included a tremendous intrigue with Jaren Jackson Jr., league sources said.

In doing so he averaged 14.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists in 25 minutes over 61 total games.

"I have a lot of ex-NBA players on my team and I play against a lot of ex-NBA players", he said. He teamed with Miami's Goran Dragic to lead Slovenia to a surprising gold medal at FIBA EuroBasket 2017. "He just has the skill set and an understanding and a feel for the game".

"We got a guy that we think is a franchise foundation piece, and so it's a really great day for the Mavericks organization", Carlisle said. So he's taking a guarded approach with Doncic for now.
