We are a week away from the 2018 NBA Draft, which means that teams are starting to narrow down their draft boards and hone in on who they will take when they are on the clock next Thursday night.

The Sacramento Kings, who hold the 2nd overall pick, have reportedly honed in on Michael Porter Jr. in their coveted spot, according to USA Today’s Sam Amick.

Porter, Luka Doncic and Marvin Bagley III have all been linked to the Kings at the 2nd spot as it is widely assumed that the Phoenix Suns will select Deandre Ayton with the number one overall pick.

According to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, the Kings are lukewarm on Doncic’s NBA prospects, making the tie to Porter that much more likely.

Amid the division within the Chicago Bulls organization between new head coach Jim Boylen, who took over recently for the fired Fred Hoiberg, and a number of players on the roster, has taken another turn.

According to ESPN’s Malika Andrews and Ramona Shelbourne, Bulls guard Zach LaVine spoke with Boylen one-on-one following the players boycotting of Sunday’s practice imposed by Boylen, which they felt was excessive.

“You just want to be real with people,” LaVine said, per the report. “There shouldn’t be any clouds. I think of myself as one of the leaders on the team. I just wanted to voice my opinion to them.”

“This is a business, this isn’t a dictatorship. We are all grown men, so everybody has a voice.”

Boylen has said that he has spoken with the team regarding the purpose of the practice on Sunday, but it is clear that the dysfunction runs deep in the organization.

Knicks Could Trade Enes Kanter

Enes Kanter’s days as a member of the New York Knicks could be coming to a close as the veteran big man could be traded by the Knicks ahead of this year’s NBA trade deadline, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

If they choose not to trade him, the Knicks could renounce him during the offseason to maximize their cap space so that they could be major players in free agency next summer.

“If the Knicks are going free-agent shopping in July, they will likely do it without Kanter,” Marks speculated. “The impending free agent has a $27.9 million cap hold, and the only clear path for New York to create max room would be to renounce Kanter or let him walk in the summer.

The question leading into the deadline: Will the front office decide to maximize Kanter’s trade value now or keep the center as an insurance policy if they miss out on their free-agent targets?”

Kanter has posted 14.9 points and 11.5 rebounds per game for New York this season.
