"At just 19, the 6'7" combo guard became the youngest player to win the Liga ACB MVP, the EuroLeague MVP and the EuroLeague Final Four MVP.

Jeremy Woo of SI.com has a meaty post detailing all the latest chatter on the eve of the draft, including the popular speculation that the Sacramento Kings are likely to go with talented Duke big man Marvin Bagley III with the second pick.

June 14: The Memphis Grizzlies have gauged the trade market on a package that includes Chandler Parsons and their No. 4 overall pick.

"Pick one to five, it will be incredible to be selected there, especially for a European guy", Doncic told Yahoo Sports.

The Kings have always been known to make wacky draft decisions, perhaps most notably selecting Georgios Papagiannis at #11 in 2016 and then promptly cutting him only one year later.

Mitchell emerged as the Jazz's leading scorer last season (20.5 ppg) and finished with more made 3-pointers (187) than any other rookie in National Basketball Association history.

One NBA scout told NBA.com's David Aldridge that teams would be silly to pass up on the 19-year-old, as he thinks he's going to be a really good player. They also have talented young players such as Terry Rozier to use in an attempt to move up.

Though Doncic lacks the freakish size and bounce that Porzingis has displayed so far in his career, the basketball IQ and feel of Doncic already looks to be far superior than many current NBA veterans, something that any team could benefit from.
