Top prospect Don­cic un­sure of join­ing NBA

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - SPORTS -

The Phoenix Suns won the NBA Draft lot­tery on May 15, but re­ceived luke­warm news two days later.

Ac­cord­ing to ESPN. com, the pos­si­ble No. 1 over­all pick Luka Don­cic said he’s not sure about join­ing the NBA next sea­son.

Don­cic is 19 and a point guard. He plays for Real Madrid, and is con­sid­er­ing one of the top play­ers in Europe.

“I’m not sure if these are the last two games (in Europe),” Don­cic said at a news con­fer­ence for the Euro League Fi­nal Four. “We have yet to make this de­ci­sion. Per­haps af­ter the sea­son.”

He and Ari­zona cen­ter De­An­dre Ay­ton are con­sid­ered the top two prospects in the up­com­ing NBA draft.

The Sacra­mento Kings own the No. 2 over­all pick. The Cava­liers will pick eighth.
