Some Teams Eying Possibility Of Trading Up For Luka Doncic

The reigning Euroleague regular-season MVP, Doncic, 19, is expected to go early in the June 21 draft, some projecting him to go as high as the top four.

- Suns want 2nd top 10 pick? Plenty of executives are likely thrilled that he is remaining in the draft. If so, this is the trade package I would explore if I am the Clippers.

As implied by Wojnarowski, Jackson has shown enough upside for the Suns to have at least a brush with the idea of trading down in the draft while collecting a new asset in the process. However, the tide is turning in favor of DeAndre Ayton being selected with the first pick by the Phoenix Suns and Doncic reportedly falling out of the top three spots.

The Clippers have the No. 12 and No. 13 overall selections.

Here's another indicator Doncic will play in the National Basketball Association next season. Not only is it making the team significantly better next year, it opens the door for other opportunities after the season ends.

With two lottery picks, this also gives the Clippers an opportunity to try and trade up and draft a potential superstar.

Memphis is going to get much more out of freeing up Parsons for Harris and Beverley than they would a second first-round pick. Since the Clippers have the right pieces, something tells me that these rumors will become a reality.
