According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, "Luka Doncic has moved to forefront of Atlanta's internal conversation on the third overall pick."

NBA decision makers seem to be split when it comes to Doncic, as some have him as the top prospect and others may not even have him in their top 3-5. In terms of fantasy, the Hawks would be a great landing spot for Doncic because they could slowly build their offense around him for years to come. If Doncic is off the board, Wojnarowski adds that the Hawks will consider Jaren Jackson Jr. and Marvin Bagley (if the Kings pass on Bagley at No. 2).

Luka Doncic was held to eight points on 2-of-6 shooting in Tuesday's Game 4 win, adding one 3-pointer, eight boards, two assists and two steals over 28 minutes.

It wasn't Doncic's best game, but he came through with some big-time buckets in the clutch, including a one-legged 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down over the final few minutes (link below). With the win, Real Madrid came away with the ACB League championship, so Doncic will now be able to attend the 2018 NBA draft in New York on Thursday.

Mo Bamba has refused to share his medical information or work out for Memphis and has expressed to Memphis management that he does not want to be a Grizzly.

Bamba isn't the only high-profile prospect who has been avoiding the Grizzlies, which makes sense considering a lot of guys expected to go in the lottery are bigs, and in Memphis they'd have to compete for minutes with JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol. Bamba's raw athleticism and shot-blocking prowess (3.7 swats per game at Texas) make him a highly alluring draft day target, and he's essentially a lock be a top-5 pick.

LeBron James reportedly does not want to play in Houston next season.

The Rockets still haven't had an opportunity to make their pitch to James, but according to Steven A. Smith, Chris Paul has begun telling people that he doesn't anticipate James landing in Houston and that he'd prefer to play in Los Angeles. The Lakers could realistically land Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and King James this summer, which would surround James with the sort of star power necessary to combat Golden State. There's still a lot that can happen here, but right now, the Lakers look like the early favorites in the James sweepstakes.

The Hawks have made Dennis Schroder "available for trades," according to Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated.

Last month, Schroder made some controversial comments at a press conference. "I have to look individually what’s the best for me," Schroder said. "I will be 25 in September... I cannot be second to last in the Eastern Conference. That’s why I will have the talks with the Atlanta Hawks." The Hawks have two picks in the top-20 in the 2018 draft, so they may explore adding a young point guard to the roster.

Joe Vardon of the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that the Cavs will select Michael Porter Jr. at No. 8 if he's still on the board when Cleveland is on the clock.

Although Porter is projected to go in the top-7 in most mock drafts, there is a chance he slips due to the concerns surrounding his injury history (he had a microdiscectomy of his L3-L4 spinal discs in November). Based on talent and skill set, Porter has a chance to become the best player in this draft class if he can stay healthy.

The Cavs will not renew the contracts of assistant coach Jim Boylan and player development coach Phil Handy, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

ESPN reports that Dan Geriot will be promoted to a full-time assistant role and Damon Jones will see increased coaching responsibilities as well.

Coach Brad Stevens said that the Celtics would "love" to keep Marcus Smart in Boston.

"Everybody in the building would tell you we would love to have Marcus back," said Stevens. "Marcus has been great here — a big part of our DNA." Smart is a restricted free agent this summer, meaning that the Celtics can match any offer he receives. However, Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier will hit free agency in July of 2019, so it's unclear how much Boston is willing to commit to Smart, who last month declared he's "worth more than 12-14 million" per year.
