As a preview to the main event, which is Thursday, let's take a look at our final 2018 NBA Mock Draft, which features a few surprises and one really big draft day deal. The Atlanta Hawks have listened to trade offers for the pick but are rumored to be seeking a premium to move down in the draft (same with the Grizzlies at No. 4).
With the Suns reportedly set on Arizona's Deandre Ayton with the top overall pick, Doncic would have to fall past just one team, the Kings at No. 2, for the Hawks to have a shot at Doncic.
"Pick one to five, it will be wonderful to be selected there, especially for a European guy", Doncic told Yahoo Sports.More news: Here's The First Poster For Michael B. Jordan's Much-Needed "Creed II"

For better or for worse, Adrian Wojnarowski's Twitter feed will no longer be several picks ahead of the NBA Draft broadcast this year.
"I need to show it on the court, because I need to prove it". Watching him play, it's hard to say he even has above-average athleticism. If the Hawks make the pick, it's been unclear what direction they go, in part because there were a lot of rumors about Sacramento's leanings.
The Kings have always been known to make wacky draft decisions, perhaps most notably selecting Georgios Papagiannis at #11 in 2016 and then promptly cutting him only one year later. Had Doncic played for any college in America and produced the same results talk of him slipping out of the top five would be seen as incredulous.
