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

We have talked about Luka Doncic and the Los Angeles Clippers before.

Michael Scotto recently reported that the Clippers have "made calls to several teams" with a Top-10 pick to try to make a trade.

The reigning Euroleague regular-season MVP, Doncic, 19, is expected to go early in the June 21 draft, some projecting him to go as high as the top four.

On the Yahoo Sports NBA Podcast with Chris Mannix, NBA insider Shams Charania mentioned that the Clippers are interested in moving up in the draft, with their eyes on Slovenian superstar prospect Luka Doncic. But while there will be posturing for position around James' new destination, there are plenty of teams that figure to at the least explore trade options during the draft, either to jockey for position in the LeBron sweepstakes or to better position themselves as part of a rebuilding process. If so, this is the trade package I would explore if I am the Clippers.

"I don't know what Neymar's limit is", said Tite , whose team arrived early yesterday morning in Sochi where they will be based. He will be given the responsibility to lead Brazil's defence along with Miranda.

"Given his ability to contribute in a variety of ways, the 6'8" Doncic has the tools to become a superstar in the National Basketball Association.

Phoenix GM Ryan McDonough has said the team will listen to other offers, especially if another team offers up a mind-blowing deal, but ultimately they plan on keeping the top pick.

By doing this the Clippers can maintain the 13th overall pick to also draft a center that can replace DeAndre Jordan, someone like Robert Williams fits the billing.
