Luka Doncic is capable of doing just about everything. And at just 19 years of age, his potential is unlimited.

Doncic is already playing in one of the most competitive professional basketball leagues in the world, and has been since he was just 16 years old. Competition is much tougher than that of the college level as well, with several former NBA players active.

Doncic measures around 6’8″, 225. For a shooting guard, that’s tremendous size. Considering the average height at that position is around 6’5″, Doncic would not struggle to create.

He’s a solid athlete, and while his defense is far from top-tier, he has plenty of time to learn. Currently projected to go 4th overall, it would take quite a bit to wrestle Doncic away from an opposing team. But it could certainly be done, if the Clippers are willing.
