Luka Doncic reiterated his stance he thought he would be drafted by the Sacramento Kings.
“They came to Madrid (to see him play for Real Madrid and to share a dinner on June 5, 2018)," Doncic told The Athletic about the Kings’ contingent’s visit during the draft process. “They came with the owner. Everybody came, so I honestly thought they were going to pick me.”
Doncic was then asked if it has been made clear to him why they decided to draft Marvin Bagley instead of him at No. 2 in 2018.
“I mean, I think it’s because of Euroleague; it’s different basketball,” Doncic said. “I was averaging in Europe — in the Spanish League — like 12 points (per game). And in Euroleague 14 (points per game). So it’s different basketball.”
