In addition to flipping picks, the Mavericks will send the Hawks a future first-round pick that is protected in 2019.
Fantasy Impact: Doncic's abilities as a guard, combined with his forward size, make him a prototypical player for the new wing-dominated National Basketball Association.
Doncic is likely to be the heir apparent at the Mavericks to Germany's Dirk Nowitzki, who is 40 years old and expected to retire soon.
The Atlanta Hawks have selectedLuka Doncic, guard from Real Madrid (Spain), with the 3rd overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft. Just the consensus I get is that people really like Doncic. "Another says it can be hard to persuade owners, who are quick to bring up names like [Andrea] Bargnani".
Not a great shooter or defender, Doncic stands out most for his impressive playmaking skills, an attribute magnified by his 6-7 size.
Atlanta remains a target of multiple teams trying to move up in the draft, including Dallas, which also has been focused on selecting Doncic, league sources said. "I think I'm going to play something, but I need to discuss that with the team".
"I like challenges", Doncic said.
Nowitzki, who was in the draft room with the Mavericks two nights after celebrating his 40th birthday, quickly greeted his fellow European on Twitter, and Doncic replied in kind.
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. Huerter could turn into a good 3-point threat, but I feel he lacks the intangibles to become much more than that.
The Nuggets are winners in this draft because somehow, someway, they got a top five talent with the 14th pick.

It's finally time for him to pass the torch to Luka Doncic, the heir apparent to the Mavericks throne.
