Twitter rips Hawks for trading Luka Doncic away

By Michael Dixon

The Atlanta Hawks selected Luka Doncic third overall in the NBA Draft. But, as expected, it was announced that he’ll be traded to the Dallas Mavericks for Trae Young, who will be sent to Atlanta.

Twitter was unfriendly to the Hawks for the trade, ripping Atlanta for dealing Doncic away.

Some fans agreed with science, believing Doncic to be the best player in the draft.

Draft day trades frequently don’t end up as anticipated. Young might end up being a better player than Doncic. We’re not going to know for a while.

But on this night, Atlanta’s decision was not well received.
