Luka Doncic’s buyout to be completed soon

Luka Doncic, who was picked in No.3 of the 2018 NBA Draft, hasn’t been available to join the Dallas Mavericks’ team practices yet.

The reason is that his buyout with Real Madrid (which is estimated at around $2M) has not been completed so far, yet the Mavs are expected to solve this issue as soon as possible, according to the team’s head coach Rick Carlisle.

“He has not participated in a live practice yet, because he needs to have his buyout completed with Real Madrid. We’re getting close to getting those things done, but we’re not there yet,” coach Carlisle explained to the media.
