It seems that with the exception of Luka Doncic who will not be able to attend the draft, no other European player is considered a lock for the lottery of the upcoming National Basketball Association draft.

Marc Stein of the New York Times is hearing the Toronto Raptors, who are without a selection in this year's draft, are looking to acquire a pick in the 8-10 range. 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.

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.

"Pick one to five, it will be awesome to be selected there, especially for a European guy", Doncic told Yahoo Sports.

Mitchell emerged as the Jazz's leading scorer last season (20.5 ppg) and finished with more made 3-pointers (187) than any other rookie in National Basketball Association history. I'm motivated to enter the draft.

As the NBA Draft looms Thursday night at 7 p.m., we made a decision to delve into what the draft could look like if NBA teams were only picking high school players from the 2019 and 2020 classes.

One NBA scout told's David Aldridge that teams would be silly to pass up on the 19-year-old, as he thinks he's going to be a really good player. Doncic said. "I can jump that high, but he can jump, too". Had Doncic played for any college in America and produced the same results talk of him slipping out of the top five would be seen as incredulous.
