Euroleague star Doncic to remain in National Basketball Association draft

- Porter Jr. camp to pick teams? If so, this is the trade package I would explore if I am the Clippers.

It is not surprising to see the Clippers trying to trade up in the draft as they have the ammo to do it. Los Angeles now owns both the No. 12 and No. 13 picks and could package them with a player to move into the top 10. The workout is expected to take place close to draft night, sources say. The Grizzlies, however, still have Marc Gasol and Mike Conley and can afford to trade down in the draft if it means more assets.

Fresh off a Euroleague title and Final Four MVP honors at the ripe age of 19, Doncic's aptitude for moving the ball, ability to make reads as a ball-handler and overall skill set make him a safe bet to become a quality contributor at minimum.

A number of teams have also inquired about the possibility of trading into the top three, with an eye on picking Doncic. In arguably one of the deepest drafts in recent years, this gives LA an opportunity to pick up to young players, that can hopefully blossom into future National Basketball Association stars.

Projected to draft seventh overall, the Kings leapfrogged five other tanking hopefuls in order to move up to second behind only the Phoenix Suns. They could use both first round picks, but the idea of Doncic playing at the Staples Center is tantalizing.
