NBA Draft: 5 best fits for Luka Doncic

Philadelphia 76ers: Are the Sixers trying to trade up for Luka Doncic?

Do they manage to sniff out the ideal blockbuster deal and trade the No. 1 pick for an established, young superstar who can play with Devin Booker for the long haul?

The New York Knicks are looking to make a splash this summer now that they've added head coach David Fizdale to the mix and have the number nine overall pick in Thursday night's 2018 NBA Draft.

Doncic will leave for NY on Wednesday, sources said, and will be one of 20 players sitting in the green room at Barclays Center.

"At just 19, the 6'7" combo guard became the youngest player to win the Liga ACB MVP, the EuroLeague MVP and the EuroLeague Final Four MVP. Ironically, the team traded two late-pick standouts in exchange for expiring contracts and another shot at selecting a late-pick standout.

Trump calls for US$200B more tariffs on China; US futures drop
What's more , unlike Trump's other trade spats, there are (arguably) real national interests at stake in his showdown with China. USA tariffs that affect more than 800 Chinese products worth $34bn in annual trade are due to come into effect on 6 July.

Some of the biggest potential deals across the league actually involve teams at the top of the draft, including the Kings (No. 2), Hawks (No. 3), Grizzlies (No. 4) and the Mavericks (No. 5).

On Wednesday, Puma also announced it had signed another projected lottery pick, Missouri forward Michael Porter Jr. "I don't see the need to move up". 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.

One NBA scout told NBA.com'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.
