Slovenian teen star Luka Doncic has elevated to the forefront of the Atlanta Hawks' internal discussions on the third overall pick in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft, league sources told ESPN. Per Wojnarowski, general consensus has the Kings taking Duke big Marvin Bagley III.
Luka Doncic wasn't there, so never say never, but about 20 other NBA Draft prospects - all the Green Room invites, minus Robert Williams, who dropped out - answered questions about the process and about what would happen the following evening.
Doncic's stock had seemingly dropped slightly during the predraft process despite one of the most impressive individual seasons in recent European seasons with Spanish power Real Madrid. As one of the likely top selections in the draft, Doncic's talent is undeniable, with NBA TV offering a profile of the 19-year-old native of Slovenia that indicated who his favorite player is: Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James. He also won the EuroLeague Rising Star and Liga ACB Best Young Player awards for the second straight season.

During the 2017-18 season, Doncic averaged 14.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game.
The green room is a staging area near the draft podium where players, families and associates await NBA commissioner Adam Silver to call their names upon selection.
And yet, he may still be the most talented player in this class.
