I don't think Doncic falls out of the top 5, but watching his game, it certainly worries me. He seems to be the finesse type player but is quite slow and in some ways seems very stiff as a player. There haven't been many great Euro or FIBA guard prospects throughout NBA history. Really the only one that comes to mind is Manu and he was a late 2nd rounder whom happened to develop into a Star.
I think Ayton and Bagley are the obvious guys that you know will produce. As for the guards, I'm hesitant when it comes to both Trae Young and Doncic. It'll be interesting to see who pans out and where each guy goes.
My personal mock draft for top 3...
Suns - Ayton (There 2nd coming of Amare?)
Kings - Doncic (Something tells me Vlade and Vivek don't pass up on the foreign talent)
Hawks - Marvin Bagley (No brainer)
I like Jaren Jackson a lot more than Bagley. IMO Bagley is the 2nd coming of Amare.
For someone with his freakish athleticism you'd think he could muster more than 1.0 block per 40 mins. For comparison, JJJ blocks 5.5 shots per 40. He's also a bit light, doesn't have long arms, doesn't protect the rim and doesn't have great defensive awareness on the perimeter. In addition he only shoots 62% from the line which doesn't bode well for his ability to shoot 3s at the next level.
