The Sacramento Kings moved up to No. 2 in the lottery and are believed to be considering their options beyond Luka Doncic if the Phoenix Suns select Deandre Ayton at No. 1 as expected.
"I think when they were at seven, they were really looking hard at Michael Porter," said Jonathan Givony on The Woj Pod. "But now that they moved up to two, I think they have to look at the big guys. They have a real hole there in the frontcourt. I don't think that they're in love with Willie Cauley-Stein by any means. They started Zach Randolph at the four all year long.
"What do they do there? Do they go with Marvin Bagley who is going to be a compelling prospect for them? Or do they go with Luka Doncic? His father is of Serbian descent. Their GM is Serbian. Their assistant GM is Serbian. Their international scout is Serbian. Luka Doncic is Slovenian, he would tell you that obviously, but it used to be the same country not too long ago. You would think if anybody would be comfortable drafting a European player so high, it would be that front office, but I don't think it is a home run by any means.
"I'm heading to Belgrade tonight for the Euroleague Final Four to watch Luka Doncic, among others. It will be interesting for me to see who is there. I know Vlade (Divac) is going to be there. Is Vivek Ranadive going to be there? Is Brandon Williams going to be there? What is that process going to look like in terms of who is going to be making that pick."
