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.
