Luka Doncic RumorsAll NBA Players
On NBA draft prospect Luka Doncic… Dirk Nowitzki: “I’ve not talked to Holger about him. All I’ve seen was the little clips. I haven’t really seen one whole game. It seems like, to me, for a 19-year-old is really savvy. He’s already playing a great court game. He’s going to be a little challenged, I think, athletically if he plays the 1. He’s got enough size to play the 2, especially now with everybody going small anyways. I think he’d be okay. I mean, he’s got all the game. He’s got all the mid-range. He’s got the pull-ups. He’s got the step backs. He’s great with the ball. He can run pick-and-rolls – which would suit him great here now since it’s a pick-and-roll league now anyway. I think he’s going to be great. But it’ll be interesting to see where he ends up, how this whole draft is going to shake out. I guess everything – besides [DeAndre] Ayton, who I think is going to go No. 1 – I’m not really sure what’s going to happen.”
Q: Who will the Suns take with the No. 1 overall pick in June: Deandre Ayton or Luka Doncic? — Gene Ross MARC STEIN: The Suns don’t know yet. That’s truly where things stand with just under a month to go before the June 21 draft. I’m sure the Suns will say on draft night that they knew who they wanted all along, but they’ll likely need the next few weeks to make the call.
On Tuesday, May 21, according to various media, the 19-year old signed his EuroLeague Final Four jersey and donated it to the Drazen Petrovic Memorial Center. The jersey had a dedication to it: “To Drazen’s mother”
With that as the backdrop, Hawks GM Travis Schlenk was prompted about Doncic on Tuesday as part of an interview with 92.9 The Game in Atlanta and he started by indicating that Atlanta is looking to “get a read” on Doncic’s status. (via KL Chouinard of Hawks.com) “I had a chance to sit down with his agent last week in Chicago and try to get a read on the situation, and his agent obviously was flying over to the (EuroLeague) Final Four in Belgrade. He’ll get back to the States this weekend and we’re going to circle back with him.”
