Luka Doncic's National Basketball Association decision won't come down to specific team, agent says

Luka Doncic's National Basketball Association decision won't come down to specific team, agent says

Even with the conference finals going on, the NBA's eyes turn to the future this week.

Most will be participating in the draft combine, also happening in Chicago this week.

Ping pong balls bounced Phoenix's way on Tuesday awarding the Suns the No. 1 pick.

"It would mean a lot if it were to happen that way", Bagley said. As much as Vlade Divac loves to make insane out of the box decisions there are a number of bigs at the top of the draft to offer Divac plenty of choices.

Phoenix has a 25 percent chance of winning the No. 1 pick, followed by Memphis (19.9 percent), Dallas (13.8 percent) and Atlanta (13.7 percent). Most recently, Ferdette can be seen lighting it up overseas in China.

"I really wanted that No. 1 pick to bring home to the city and the fans", said Brand, a former Sixers player turned general manager of team's National Basketball Association G-League squad, the Delaware Blue Coats. "We just want to be able to help give back". And it goes against everything as a competitive person that you believe in.

The team had the league's worst record and the best chance of getting the No. 1 pick, at 25 percent.

The 7:30 p.m. ET draft lottery will determine the top 14 picks in the June 21 draft, with all teams in the lottery having a chance in the drawing for the top-three picks and the other 11 lottery picks, and the rest of the draft, determined by reverse order of record. Let us not forget the entire "Jimmermania" that occurred as he was expected to be a life savior to a franchise in distress. Phoenix fans will likely endorse Ayton already, given that he played for the University of Arizona. It's a disappointing finish, all things considered, for a team that began the year 3-20, traded its leading scorer and saw its remaining three leading scorers miss a combined 102 games. Flip that January 29 outcome, and it would been the Grizzlies with the best chance at the No. 1 pick.

The Orlando Magic were saddled with the No. 6 pick in this year's NBA Draft after Tuesday's lottery. "We targeted a three-year rebuilding window and I know it's been a little bit controversial in some ways". The more I think about it, the more alternative directions come to mind. But they've never listened to me before, so.

The new lottery format isn't the only looming change related to drafts. "He's willing to make a pass, he's willing to play for his teammates and make other people better on the court".

It seems we won't know until the end of the EuroLeague season whether or not Doncic's comments are honest or just him navigating the media during the wrap-up of the EuroLeague season, but his comments could be enough to potentially give pause to teams considering drafting him at the top of this year's lottery.

Sacramento doesn't have their 2019 first rounder as it falls to Philadelphia thanks in part to that Nik Stasukas trade, so they need to make this draft count for this and next year.
