Locked On Suns Friday: European basketball reporter David Pick dishes on Luka Doncic and scouting overseas

New, comments

We brought on the best in the business to talk about Luka Doncic’s journey to becoming a high-lottery prospect.

On today’s episode, Brendon brings in the European Woj, David Pick, to discuss Luka Doncic’s performance at the EuroLeague Final Four in a wide-ranging conversation that stretches beyond just Doncic.

Pick has been as close a source as any to Doncic throughout his journey since age 13 up to this point, now considered a contender to be the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft. He talks about Doncic’s development, the historic nature of his EuroLeague performance, and why the level of competition against which Doncic played is legit.

We also discuss how European scouting has become less mysterious over time for NBA teams, and how much more the league knows about Doncic than even Dragan Bender, whom the Suns took at No. 4 just two summers ago.

Finally, we drop in on Dzanan Musa, another player performing well overseas who could be in play for the Suns at No. 16, if they target wing offense at that spot. Pick discusses why players competing in lesser leagues and tournaments are still valued so highly in the draft.
