Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger says there is no ceiling for Luka Doncic


The Sacramento Kings are one of the big surprises of the NBA this season. A young and talented team coached by Dave Joerger is currently sitting on the sixth spot in the western conference and it looks like they might reach the playoffs for the first time in twelve years.

After last night's win against the Dallas Mavericks, Joerger mentioned Luka Doncic as a very special young player. Don't forget, last summer the Kings actually drafted Marvin Bagley III as the second pick while Luka Doncic was obviously drafted by the Mavericks right after Bagley.

"He's got a lot of different skills and I think he's going to become a heck of a shooter. And when that happens, it's going to make him quicker. He's got good ballhandling and he knows how to play. Perhaps there was an idea that there was a ceiling on him. I don't see it, unfortunately for us. But he's great for them and he's great for our league."
