With the fifth pick in the 2018 NBA draft, the Dallas Mavericks select Trae Young from the University of Oklahoma. That didn’t last long as the Dallas Mavericks swapped players with the Atlanta Hawks. Dallas sent Young and a future first-round pick to Atlanta in exchange for Luka Doncic, the third pick in last night’s draft. Doncic is a 6 foot 8 point guard from Slovenia. In 2018, the 19-year-old led Real Madrid to the EuroLeague championship. He was named the EuroLeague Final Four MVP as well as the EuroLeague MVP. With the 33rd pick, the Mavs took Jalen Brunson, a guard from Villanova. Brunson is a two-time national champion. He was also the Big East player of the year this season.

The NFL is planning to suspend Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston the first three games of the season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, per league sources. The planned suspension stems from an alleged incident with an Uber driver in Scottsdale, Arizona, in March 2016. The league still has not notified Winston of its official decision, and the circumstances surrounding it still could lead to an increase or decrease of the three games. One source said Winston could be notified as early as today, but others think it will be handed down sometime in the next week.
The New York Islanders have hired Barry Trotz as their new head coach.
