Will there big multiple big-name trades on draft night? Do they manage to sniff out the flawless blockbuster deal and trade the No. 1 pick for an established, young superstar who can play with Devin Booker for the long haul?

June 14: The Memphis Grizzlies have gauged the trade market on a package that includes Chandler Parsons and their No. 4 overall pick.

Atlanta remains a target of multiple teams trying to move up in the draft, including Dallas, which also has been focused on selecting Doncic, league sources said.

Rival teams say that Atlanta general manager Travis Schlenk has been willing to engage in talks about dropping out of the third spot and moving down to draft later in the first round, league executives said.

With the Phoenix Suns reportedly set on taking Arizona's Deandre Ayton with the top overall pick, the Hawks will have to hope the Sacramento Kings pass on taking Doncic at number two so that they can take him at number three. 3, 19 and 30.
