While it is up for debate whether Luka Doncic is the top prospect in the NBA Draft, he is certainly the most accomplished player to date.

Saturday, he added to his list of accomplishments as he was named the MVP of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague.

Doncic averaged 16.1 points and 4.4 assists per game at just 19 years old. In addition, he led Real Madrid Baloncesto to a victory Friday in the EuroLeague Final Four over CSKA Moscow.

Doncic became the youngest player in EuroLeague history to win a monthly MVP award (18) and has already been named the league's rising star twice.

It is unclear where Doncic will be drafted this year, or if he will even commit to the draft, but it is obvious he is one of the top prospects and teams may already be positioning to get him.

The Suns named Igor Kokoskov their head coach recently and they also received the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft Lottery. Kokoskov coached Doncic and the Serbian National Team last year when they were able to take home a EuroBasket title.

As of right now, Arizona's Deandre Ayton may be the consensus top prospect in the draft, but Doncic will certainly be in the discussion.
