Charlotte Hornets big man Willy Hernangomez believes that Slovenian teen sensation Luka Doncic will be amongst the first picked in a future NBA draft.

“I have a great relationship with Luka”, Hernangomez said to Spanish outlet Marca.

“He’s almost part of the Hernangómez family. I talk a lot with him and what I try, from my experience, is not to create too many expectations for the time being.”

While Hernangomez talks about Doncic being part of the family, he believes that Doncic will be amongst the top picks of this year’s Draft.

“For me, he must be among the first, if not the number one of the draft.

“He has a lot of talent, but he is a player that when he comes will have to work and know in which position he will play.”
