The Atlanta Hawks are sending the rights to Luka Doncic to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for the rights to Trae Young and the Mavs' 2019 first-round draft pick, National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver announced.

Last year, of course, Jimmy Butler was traded from Chicago to Minnesota in exchange for Jimmy Butler, Kris Dunn while the Bulls and Timberwolves also swapped draft selections.

It took under 15 minutes for the first major shake-up of the 2018 NBA Draft.

Dallas will send Atlanta a future first-round pick as part of the trade.

He's the Terps' highest draft pick since the Phoenix Suns drafted Alex Len fifth overall in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Tremors continue in quake-hit Osaka
No irregularities were detected at the Mihama, Takahama and Ohi nuclear plants to the north of Osaka, said Kansai Electric Power. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the government was assessing damage and that its top priority was the safety of residents.

On average, there seems to be about one trade involving a starting-caliber, veteran player on National Basketball Association draft night.

Plenty more people know his name now, after he was picked No. 5 overall in the Thursday's NBA Draft.

The worldwide touch on this draft is already pronounced, with No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton being born in the Bahamas.

The Hawks may try and deal starting point guard Dennis Schroder to the Clippers for the No. 13 pick, according to a report from Atlanta TV station WSB.

Doncic helped Real Madrid to the Spanish league title thanks to a 96-85 victory over Kirolbet Baskonia in Game 4 of the ACB playoffs.
