Clippers may be looking to trade up in draft for Luka Doncic

Potential top overall pick Luka Doncic will remain in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft. But it seems they want to package those selections for a bigger piece.

We'll be focusing on teams that could make moves involving first round picks come June 21, because second round picks get dealt and sold [stares right at the Bulls] all the time and rarely are splashy moves in the moment.

"I think there's a lot of fluidity to this draft", Charania said. "I think that you could see a lot of pick movement". The Clippers have looked to trade up. It has made calls to multiple teams with a top-10 pick to inquire about a potential trade, according to a report from The Athletic.

Arizona forward Deandre Ayton (13) looks on during the championship game of the mens Pac-12 Tournament between the USC Trojans and the Arizona Wildcats on March 10, 2018, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

Doncic would give the franchise a foundation and perhaps more of a "sure thing" than their two lottery picks could provide. Harris is about to enter the final year of his contract and will earn just short of $15 million next season.

"Getting a pair of lottery picks and two more intriguing youngsters fits the mentality of this rebuilding organization, particularly because it wouldn't be giving up any of the youngsters in this scenario". It's tough to determine which player would be included in the deal, but the favorite would likely have to be Tobias Harris.
