The Mavs sent their first-round selection — effectively Trae Young — along with a top-five protected 2019 first-rounder to Atlanta for the rights to Slovenian sensation Luka Doncic in one of the draft’s two biggest deals.

For this to be a loss for the Mavericks, the value between Young and that first-round pick must be greater than the return on Doncic. That feels unlikely to be true. Doncic rates out as one of the most impressive prospects in recent years. According to the draft model of ESPN’s Kevin Pelton, Doncic has the best pro projection of any prospect dating back to 2003 (LeBron James not included since he jumped straight from high school).
