Luka Doncic Reportedly Not Expected to Play in Summer League for Mavericks

We've been exceptionally high on Doncic since he's been on our radar in the lengthy buildup to the 2018 NBA Draft, but it seems that GM Travis Schlenk and Co. disagreed with our beliefs, as they promptly traded the rights to Doncic to the Mavericks for the #5 overall pick and a future first round pick. Despite a population of just slightly over two million souls, per Wikipedia, Slovenia has produced National Basketball Association talents such as Sasha Vujacic, Beno Udrih, Rasho Nestorevic, and most notably, Goran Dragic of the Miami Heat.

"I mean, I know about the cowboys", Doncic said to laughter. "The fans here are unbelievable". The Kings also passed on Doncic by taking Duke forward Marvin Bagley III with the No. 2 overall pick. Just happy to be a part of that. Doncic is better at 19 years old than any of them were at his age.

The Hawks either love or are completely out on Luka Doncic or Jaren Jackson Jr., depending on the day and the report. Brunson helped Villanova win the 2018 NCAA collegiate title.

The Hawks have three picks in the first round - Nos.

ESPN's Tim MacMahon reported Friday that the Dallas Mavericks are not expected to have Luka Doncic participate in the summer league.

"LeBron, let's do it". When they say you're not going to be good, I say, let's see. "Let's do it. Let's go back to the Finals", he said.

He is the youngest recipient of the EuroLeague MVP and EuroLeague Final Four MVP awards.

"My path was a little different than everybody else, but my goal is to make sure this pick is the best this organization has ever had", Porter said.

After the Suns at No. 1, who are a near mortal lock to take Deandre Ayton, the consensus about the rest of the top 5 is that no one has any idea what will happen.

However, the two broke up just days before the NBA Draft.

The NBA is now considering getting rid of the so-called one-and-done rule, where players must spend at least one year in college.
