Potential No. 1 overall pick Luka Doncic of Real Madrid has declared for the 2018 National Basketball Association draft, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

According to Charania, the 19-year-old submitted the paperwork this week to officially enter his name.

"The 6'8", 220-pound star who was born in Slovenia has generated plenty of attention as a top pick. He is now leading Real Madrid in the EuroLeague playoffs, averaging 14.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists this season. He has been projected as the top pick in the past but that spot seems to be reserved for DeAndre Ayton of Arizona now.

Doncic is a natural ball-handler, which, combined with the fact he's 6-foot-8, has led to comparisons with the Philadelphia 76ers, who has dominated the Eastern Conference in his rookie season and has impressed so far in the playoffs. He likely won't ever be a true point guard but those skills could see him running the offense from time to time.
