Travis Schlenk: Hawks Would Have Drafted Luka Doncic If They Kept 3rd Pick

Feb 17, 2019 9:00 PM

Travis Schlenk said that the Atlanta Hawks were going to draft Luka Doncic had they kept the 3rd pick in last year's draft. 

"Not a lot of people know this...if we stayed at 3, we would have taken Luka. We had worked with his agent, he did a physical with us that morning in New York...but then Dallas came in an hour or so before the draft. I told them all along that it would take another lottery pick for us to slide back, and that's when the conversations got started," Schlenk stated on Adrian Wojnarowski's podcast.

The deal to move back two spots and receive a top-5 protected pick from the Mavs this season was influenced by analytics.   

"Our analytics staff was predicting Dallas to finish 8th this year," added Schlenk.

Hawks, Magic Have Expressed Interest In Markelle Fultz

Feb 6, 2019 6:38 PM

The future of Markelle Fultz with the Philadelphia 76ers remains uncertain.

Fultz is owed $9.75 million for the 19-20 season, which will be a problematic figure for the 76ers if they re-sign Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.

"Teams like Atlanta, Orlando, they've talked to Philadelphia on Markelle Fultz," said Adrian Wojnarowski. "There's a real possibility he's played his last game with the 76ers."

There is no timetable for when Fultz will be able to play again.

Trae Young Says He'll Be Better Than Luka Doncic In 5-10 Years

Jan 29, 2019 12:44 AM

Trae Young stated he was going to be a better player than Luka Doncic in the future.

The two were part of a draft day trade involving the Mavs and Hawks. 

"In my eyes, it's not a question -- it's going to be me. But that's just the competitive nature in my blood, and I think that's the no-brainer with me," when asked whether he or Doncic would be better in 5-10 years. 

Young added that the trade worked out for both teams.

"Luka's having a really good year so far. And for me, all I do is try to focus on myself and my team. I know it's easy to say, but I'm really dedicated to working extremely hard every day for my teammates and things like that. And I think at the end of the day it worked out for both teams. That's how I look at it. I mean, Luka's doing really well. I feel like I'm doing really well as well," added Young.
