Shoot it, shoot it, lock it down, fade away – FLIP MODE

Doncic faded off to the Mavs and now busting out the trap is Trae Young who was selected fifth overall. Atlanta swopped picks with Dallas as part of a deal. The Mavs will also send a lottery-protected first-round in 2019 to the Hawks. 

How well did this trade sit with Hawks fans? 

1/3 of the Superstars doing it for the Culture II seem to like the move…

BUT… a draft from the past resurfaced –  

Atlanta also selected Kevin Red Mamba Huerter of Maryland with the No. 19 overall selection and with the final pick in the first round (No. 30) the Hawks snagged Omari Spellman of Villanova. Despite the mixed reactions from fans, the early trade by the Hawks in round one may be widly optimistic -- #trusttheprocess #hawksrebuilding
