NBA Draft 2018: 5 targets for the Washington Wizards

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

Whether it is move up or down in the upcoming NBA Draft is still a question.

3 overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.

Jared Weiss of The Athletic later tweeted that the C's are interested in moving up to the No. 4 pick, now occupied by the Grizzlies.

Chandler Parsons would have to be included in any deal for the No. 4 pick.

"In a draft in which four or five players could be tabbed a wildcard, Duke center Wendell Carter ranks among them".

Let's hope that this scenarios plays out exactly as outlined: Suns take DeAndre Ayton, Kings take Bagley and Doncic falls to #3, where the Hawks select him 3 overall - setting in motion the first major player on the next great Hawks team. Rumors have been circulating recently that they could be adding the European sensation, Luka Doncic.




It appears the Memphis Grizzlies are also looking to trade their pick (the fourth pick). It's extremely unlikely Bamba would be available for the Knicks at their No. 9 pick, another indication NY has considered moving up via trade.

"I think just a player that can play multiple positions that fits in well with the way we play, the way our guys are, and how we get along", O'Neale said. Coincidentally, any deal would include Memphis getting back the future first-rounder that they traded to the Celtics in the 2014 Jeff Green trade.

DiVincenzo was a member of both the 2016 and 2018 NCAA national championship teams.

Still, due to National Basketball Association rules requiring matching salaries for teams over the salary cap, any trade Memphis makes on Thursday will need to bring back a contract or several contracts of significant size, at least for the 2018-19 season.

Evans averaged 11.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists over the course of his three seasons at Cincinnati.
