NBA Draft: Could Luka Doncic Fall to Hawks at #3?


The green room is a staging area near the draft podium where players, families and associates await NBA commissioner Adam Silver to call their names upon selection.

Thanks to winning Game 4 of the ACB Finals on Tuesday night, Doncic will be at the 2018 NBA Draft on Thursday night and for some Americans, it will be their first real look at the Slovenian point-forward.

Clark has drawn serious interest from a number of teams, including the Minnesota Timberwolves and Indiana Pacers, and was invited to last-minute workouts with the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.

The 19-year-old joins a select group of other top-projected draft picks in Arizona's Deandre Ayton, DUke's Marvin Bagley III, and Texas' Zhaire Smith that have chosen to ink a deal with the Puma.

If the Kings indeed selected Bagley at #2, the Hawks could possibly pull the best prospect in this draft 3 overall - an incredible achievement that would immediately help to upgrade a roster that finished last in the Eastern Conference in 2017-18.

The NBA Draft isn't too far away now, in fact, it takes place on June 21 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Atlanta Hawks are leaning toward taking Doncic with the third overall pick of the draft later this week. After my rookie season, I will see who made a mistake. They also have talented young players such as Terry Rozier to use in an attempt to move up.
