Potential lottery pick Luka Doncic will remain in National Basketball Association draft

12 pick and No. 13 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

NBA Draft night is fast approaching, and one of the top players will remain in the pool of prospects.

Then, we see the only hopeful top-three pick, Luka Doncic, fall out of the top three.

That sounded like lip service to his current team, Real Madrid, which is still competing in Europe. It would be silly not even to listen to offers, but it should take something extreme to cause the Suns to part with the top pick.


The Los Angeles Clippers now hold the No. 12 and No. 13 picks in the draft, giving them the opportunity to land two quality players at the back end of the lottery. In arguably one of the deepest drafts in recent years, this gives LA an opportunity to pick up to young players, that can hopefully blossom into future National Basketball Association stars. Already a star, but he continues to get better. He is 6'6 with the ability to play forward and run the offense like a point guard.

Projected lottery pick Luka Doncic won't withdraw from the 2018 NBA Draft, ESPN.com reported Monday, citing an unidentified source. Doncic is a modern NBA GM's dream, and if the Kings pass on him with the second overall pick, it is a mistake. Remember, Doncic has four years of professional experience in Europe.

Los Angeles has also expressed interest in making a move up for Missouri's Michael Porter Jr., but they appear to be favoring Doncic if he slides.
