As the NBA Draft looms Thursday night at 7 p.m., we chose to delve into what the draft could look like if NBA teams were only picking high school players from the 2019 and 2020 classes. The prospect in question is none other than Luka Doncic, the 19-year-old Slovenian phenom, who has been at the center of attention in this draft - for good reason.

Clark has drawn serious interest from a number of teams, including the Minnesota Timberwolves and Indiana Pacers, and was invited to last-minute workouts with the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.

Fran Fraschilla broke down Doncic's game during an appearance on the Rich Eisen Show, and while Fraschilla says he'd take Bagley with the second pick, his pro comparison for Doncic should make Kings fans excited.

Up until this past February, the Los Angeles Lakers were facing a reality of not having a first-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

This mock draft will contain only the teams that now have picks and who we believe will pick what player, not including any possible trade scenarios in the near future for moving up or down in the draft order.
