The speculation over whether Slovenian teenager Luka Doncic will be a part of the 2018 NBA Draft can stop.

Mo Bamba, and Wendell Carter Jr. have picked up plenty of steam over the past two weeks, while Doncic remains in Europe, playing out a best-of-five series against Baskonia, which is it were to go down to Game 5, would extend until June 22, the day after the NBA Draft.

Doncic would give the franchise a foundation and perhaps more of a "sure thing" than their two lottery picks could provide.

The Clippers have expressed interest in Real Madrid point guard Luka Doncic and could trade up to select him, Yahoo Sports NBA Insider Shams Charania said on a recent podcast.

"You could see a lot of pick movement. I think it'll be a lot of movement in this draft, potentially". While it hasn't been confirmed, it appears as if the Suns will be taking Deandre Ayton with the No. 1 overall pick.

Still, most signs point toward Doncic joining the National Basketball Association next year.

Even if Harris is not included, Los Angeles could still provide decent role players like Sam Dekker and/or Sindarius Thornwell in a deal.

We'll be focusing on teams that could make moves involving first round picks come June 21, because second round picks get dealt and sold [stares right at the Bulls] all the time and rarely are splashy moves in the moment.

Would the two lottery picks be enough?

With only one year left on his contract, Harris would be quite the valuable asset to any team.
