Now, the pick I was most surprised by was when Adam Silver announced that the Orlando Magic took Mohamed Bamba with the sixth overall pick of the NBA Draft. The move that I do not agree on is the Hawks trading Luka Doncic away to the Dallas Mavericks. Doncic can become the best player in the draft and has checked off most of the boxes. Just head scratching. I was totally shocked when the 76ers traded Mikal Bridges away to the Suns, plus when the Spurs drafted Lonnie Walker IV over big man Robert Williams (Texas A&M), which the Celtics landed a steal in Williams. Overall, every team had a nice draft and improved their roster by adding whoever they did.
