Non-collegiate players unlikely to be in National Basketball Association draft green room this year

Non-collegiate players unlikely to be in National Basketball Association draft green room this year

The Sacramento Kings are reportedly focusing their efforts on Duke Blue Devils forward Marvin Bagley III with the No. 2 pick in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft, but they're also considering Real Madrid guard Luka Doncic and Missouri Tigers forward Michael Porter Jr.at that spot.

Doncic will leave for NY on Wednesday, sources said, and will be one of 20 players sitting in the green room at Barclays Center. They also have talented young players such as Terry Rozier to use in an attempt to move up.

When the Grizzlies are on the clock, it's entirely possible they trade down to perhaps relieve some cap space by shedding Chandler Parson's contract.

In his most recent mock draft, ESPN.com's Jonathan Givony wrote Sacramento has its "sights set firmly on Bagley", while the Dallas Morning News' Eddie Sefko tweeted Bagley is a "near-lock" to go second overall.


"I need to show it on the court, because I need to prove it".

"Rival teams say that Atlanta general manager Travis Schlenk has been willing to engage in talks about dropping out of the third spot and moving down to draft later in the first round", Woj reported, citing unnamed league executives". Thus far, the kicks have only been revealed in a vibrant sunburst colorway, which is fitting considering it is widely believed the Phoenix Suns will take Puma's DeAndre Ayton with the #1 overall pick in tomorrow night's NBA Draft. You put him in a ball screen, middle of the floor, with a good roller, it's a really tough cover. If they lost, though, Doncic would have to play in a deciding Game 5 on Friday.

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