Woo also has notes on the Atlanta Hawks at 3, Memphis Grizzlies at 4 and Dallas Mavericks at 5, along with the general uncertainty sitting in the middle of the first round.

If the Kings pass on Bagley, that would clearly complicate the Hawks' ultimate choice with the third pick.

After winning the Spanish league championship on Tuesday with his Real Madrid team, Slovenia's Luka Doncic will travel to New York City and attend Thursday's National Basketball Association draft, sources said.




Once comfortably ahead of his competition in mock drafts, 18 straight months of basketball took its toll on the Slovenian prospect, and suddenly, GMs have soured on the global prospect who's dominated EuroLeague basketball at the ripe age of 19.

For the Hawks, pulling Doncic would be an absolute fantasy for this particular, as a recent plea to Hawks GM Travis Schlenk would indicate.

Luka Doncic is one of the top prospects in the 2018 NBA Draft. To complete his final season with Spain powerhouse Real Madrid, the 19-year-old amassed a EuroLeague title, EuroLeague MVP, his second straight EuroLeague Rising Star award, Liga ACB title, and a Liga ACB regular season MVP. The guy knows how to win, which is something that the lackluster Hawks should embrace with open arms. Since the NBA's common lottery era began with the 1985 draft, the fourth pick has routinely produced some of the most productive players in league history. Expect NBA Draft day to be even more unpredictable, especially if a few big names get dealt on that night - and there are certainly whispers as to a potentially wild night.
