Report Clippers want to trade up in draft may be eyeing Luka Doncic

Doncic, 19, has been one of the most talked-about names in the lead-up to the draft, with some speculating he could be taken No. 1 overall, and more recent chatter shifting to teams reportedly interested in trading into the top three to take the Slovenian pro.

The 2018 National Basketball Association draft will take place on June 21 from the Barclays Center in New York City, with players all around the world hoping to be one of the 60 selections.

However, now the latest Clippers rumors signal that this may be a real connection to keep in mind as the 2018 NBA Draft fast approaches.

By doing this the Clippers can maintain the 13th overall pick to also draft a center that can replace DeAndre Jordan, someone like Robert Williams fits the billing.

"I think there's a lot of fluidity to this draft", Charania said. If so, this is the trade package I would explore if I am the Clippers. Mock drafts have had Doncic going as high as No. 2, and even slipping to as low as No. 5.

If the Suns do hang on to the No. 1 pick, it's expected that they'll select the seven-foot, 260-pound Ayton.

We'll be focusing on teams that could make moves involving first round picks come June 21, because second round picks get dealt and sold [stares right at the Bulls] all the time and rarely are splashy moves in the moment.
