Luka Doncic, who could be the No. 1 overall selection in next month's NBA Draft, says he is unsure if he will play in the NBA next season.

The 19-year-old Slovenian, who is preparing to play for the Euroleague title for Real Madrid this weekend, said he will decide his future following his season.

"I don't know if these are my last two games in Europe. I am still weighing my options and I will make that decision at the end of the season," Doncic said in a news conference on Thursday.

The Suns, which won the NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday, could be interested in the Slovenian guard because of his ties with new head coach Igor Kokoskov, who coached Slovenia to the EuroBasket 2017 championship.

When asked to describe Doncic's game, Kokoskov offered a scouting report according to a report in AZCentral.com.

"We call him wunderkind," Kokoskov said. "He's an upcoming, rising star. Luka is a very talented player. His ability to pass, that's the hardest part of the game, the most difficult part to teach. To be a good passer you have to understand the game. It's basketball IQ. He's really unique and special at that age to understand the game well and to be a team player. He's not necessarily playing point guard but he's a playmaker who makes everybody else better on the court."
