  • Report: Hawks leaning towards Doncic with third overall pick

But the 19-year-old later added that getting to his second contract would likely indicate that his team thrived on the court.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Atlanta Hawks are leaning toward taking Doncic with the third overall pick of the draft later this week.

Although he's not a great shooter or defender, he is a good playmaker, as he averaged 14.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists in 25 minutes over 61 total games. The 19th and 30th picks have been included in discussions to move up and select another player in the draft lottery, league sources said.

Markle also claimed that he discussed politics with his new royal son-in-law, including the United States president and Brexit . Prince Harry , Duke of Sussex and Meghan , Duchess of Sussex travel in an open carriage to the Trooping the Colour ceremony.

If the Kings indeed selected Bagley at #2, the Hawks could possibly pull the best prospect in this draft 3 overall - an incredible achievement that would immediately help to upgrade a roster that finished last in the Eastern Conference in 2017-18. After my rookie season, I will see who made a mistake.

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. The four-year University of Cincinnati standout, reigning American Athletic Conference Player of the Year and fan favorite among the Bearcat faithful has spent June flying all over the country to work out for a dozen National Basketball Association teams. Just the consensus I get is that people really like Doncic. Watching him play, it's hard to say he even has above-average athleticism.

We'll have to wait until later this week to see exactly where Doncic will be playing in the National Basketball Association next season.
