Windhorst: Something

“He’s a local guy, playing at Arizona. Certainly a great night to be a Sun”

Elhassan: Everything

“They have, at least offensively, the makings of inside-outside attack. Now they actually have to work”

Fraschilla: Everything

“They have hope. They have potentially a franchise center”

MacMullan: Everything

“The pressure is kind of on now”


Elhassan: Everything

“When you pair him with Dennis Smith, you talk about positionless basketball a lot. This is tremendous for Dallas”

Fraschilla: Something

“As Dirk retires and cap space opens up, this becomes a good destination in the future because this kid is a facilitator. He makes everybody around him better”

MacMullan: Something

“They need somebody to complement Dennis Smith on the floor. Doncic is a scorer. It takes a lot of pressure off a young player trying to do too much”

Windhorst: Everything

“This is a bit of a risk because Doncic is a guy who some people think is going to be a special player, some people think he’s going to be a decent contributor”

Luka getting a warm welcome from his new Mavs teammates on Twitter


Windhorst: Everything

“He’s taking jersey No. 2, Kyrie Irving’s jersey”



Elhassan: Shai

Windhorst: “5 years from now, people are not going to remember the Trae Young shorts, they’re going to remember that Shai wore that outfit”

Note: Don’t pay attention to Trae Young’s hat. It’s misleading

Fraschilla: Porter Jr. at No. 14

“He’s a top 3 talent and once you get pass the top 5 or 6 or 7 in this draft, you might as well roll the dice. If this gambles works out for Denver, they got themselves a great young player in a spot that they didn’t expect to get them”

MacMullan: Porter Jr. at No. 14

“Franchise talent could be franchise player. The surprising part was now were hearing all this back talk a little bit about attitude and some other problems. I didn’t hear a lot of that pre-draft”

Elhassan: Young at No. 5

“I don’t think any of us saw him going that high”

Mavericks trading for Luka Doncic | Clippers trading two second round picks

Fraschilla: Clippers

“They insured that they got a guy they loved in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and drafted one of the most underrated players in this draft: Jerome Robinson. That backcourt needs help”
