The 2018–19 Dallas Mavericks season will be the 39th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Draft[edit]

Round Pick Player Position Nationality College / Club
1 3 Luka Dončić[1] SG  Slovenia Spain Real Madrid
2 33 Jalen Brunson[2] PG  United States Villanova
2 57 Ray Spalding[3] PF  United States Louisville
2 60 Kostas Antetokounmpo[4] PF  Greece Dayton

Entering the night of the draft, the Mavericks originally held only the fifth, thirty-third, and fifty-fourth picks of the 2018 NBA Draft. The last of their second round picks was acquired from a three-way trade the previous season from the Denver Nuggets that also involved the New York Knicks. The Mavericks originally fell down a spot from fourth to fifth during the NBA Draft Lottery due to them originally missing out on the Top 3 selections, despite having the tiebreaker over the Atlanta Hawks for better odds there. This also resulted in them having the better second round pick over the Hawks by comparison. Ironically, by the night of the draft, Dallas traded their original first round pick in the draft (which became Oklahoma Sooners point guard Trae Young) and a protected 2019 first round pick to Atlanta in exchange for the Hawks' own first round pick, which became the Slovenian superstar guard/forward Luka Dončić.[5] Dončić is a combo guard/small forward that grew to be a very major contributor for Real Madrid Baloncesto in the EuroLeague and Spain's national Liga ACB, winning championships and MVP awards throughout his professional tenure there, including being named the youngest ever EuroLeague Final Four MVP that year. During the beginning of the second round, the Mavericks selected point guard Jalen Brunson from Villanova University. Brunson was a key contributor for two out of three years of NCAA Championships during his time at Villanova, with his second championship year (final college year overall) also naming him both the consensus National College Player of the Year and All-American First Team member. Finally, with their last (54th) pick, they traded that selection (which became Southern Methodist University point guard Shake Milton) to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for their last two second round picks this year. With pick #57, the Mavericks received power forward Ray Spalding from Louisville University, while the very last selection of the 2018 NBA Draft became combo forward Kostas Antetokounmpo, younger brother of superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, from Dayton University.
