Luka Doncic staying in 2018 National Basketball Association draft

Clippers Trying to Trade Up for Luka Doncic

Doncic is one of the highest touted prospects heading into the draft.

There are plenty of 2018 NBA Draft rumors and news to sort through with the draft under two weeks away! But, with a three-quarters court sprint faster than Russell Westerbork and an eight-foot wingspan, he's suddenly jumped into contention for a top-three pick. If any team is willing to part ways with their top-five pick, Tobias may be the guy that makes a potential deal fall through.

- Clippers trading up in draft? If so, this is the trade package I would explore if I am the Clippers. There are a number of teams that figure to at least explore trades, particularly those with multiple first round picks or without significant cap space but clearly have needs to shake up their roster.

Dixons Carphone Breach Hits 5.9 Million Cards
About 105,000 cards issued outside the European Union, without chip-and-PIN protection, were compromised, Dixons said. The company has launched an investigation into the incident and is said to be engaged with cyber security experts.

The Clippers have the No. 12 and No. 13 overall selections. With cap space, and the need to rebuild, the Clippers can afford to take on the awful contract of Chandler Parsons by parting ways with Tobias Harris and Patrick Beverley, both of which are on expiring deals.

"Given his ability to contribute in a variety of ways, the 6'8" Doncic has the tools to become a superstar in the National Basketball Association. Not only is it making the team significantly better next year, it opens the door for other opportunities after the season ends.

Early projections for the 2019 draft include 11 SEC players in the mix, with LSU center Naz Reid leading the way as the No. 5 overall pick.
