Atlanta Hawks leaning towards taking Luka Doncic third overall in NBA Draft

A scintillating tidbit was dropped earlier today via Jonathan Givony of ESPN claiming that the Sacramento Kings are not particularly interested in Luka Doncic and are, in fact, much higher on Marvin Bagley III out of Duke - who we recently mocked to the Atlanta Hawks with the 3 overall pick.

The Atlanta Hawks have reportedly made point guard Dennis Schroder available in trade talks leading up to the 2018 National Basketball Association draft, according to Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated.

Still though, Doncic is the youngest Euroleague MVP in the league's history, and he also piloted his team to a Finals victory as a 19-year-old. He closes his 2017-18 season averaging 14.5 points, 5.2 rebound sand 4.6 assists per game.

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. "I don't see the need to move up".

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver speaks during the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft at Barclays Center on June 22, 2017 in New York City.

As an NBA scout told NBA.com's David Aldridge: "If they use him the right way, it's going to be real hard for him to fail". I want to thank everyone in Real Madrid for helping me.

But we may see Doncic off the board at No. 3. Atlanta is said to be conflicted about Luka Doncic, and while they do have interest in Trae Young, they likely won't select him unless they're able to move down.
