NBA Draft: Clippers looking to move up for Luka Doncic?

Luka Doncic and the rest of the top potential selections most likely have an idea of where they'll be drafted, but with players stock rise and falling by the day, it's hard to truly depict an accurate range.

Michael Scotto recently reported that the Clippers have "made calls to several teams" with a Top-10 pick to try to make a trade.

Several prospects have seen their stock rise as the 2018 NBA Draft creeps closer.

Luka Doncic will not withdraw his name from the 2018 National Basketball Association draft early-entry list, a source told ESPN.

"I think there's a lot of fluidity to this draft", Charania said. The Clippers have looked to trade up.

Doncic would give the franchise a foundation and perhaps more of a "sure thing" than their two lottery picks could provide. Mock drafts have had Doncic going as high as No. 2, and even slipping to as low as No. 5. While it hasn't been confirmed, it appears as if the Suns will be taking Deandre Ayton with the No. 1 overall pick. However, after examining the top five picks, there really is only one team to do business with. 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.
