Why Phoenix Suns Should Draft Deandre Ayton First Overall

The middle of this lottery is full of bigs, though, and the order they go off the board could easily shift around.

Kokoskov also noted that Doncic wants to make an impact on the court like Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons.

"Everyone's going to talk before the draft, of course". Not only did they deserve it as redemption for being the most unlucky lottery team of all time, they deserved it for losing the "correct" way in February and March.

But in the NBA's consensus mock draft released Wednesday, seven of the 10 mock drafts used for the compilation have Ayton going first to the Suns, Doncic going second to the Sacramento Kings, and Bagley going third to the Atlanta Hawks.

Now that the lottery has unfolded, trade discussions will intensify. Only a handful of team representatives, National Basketball Association officials and media knew the outcome of the lottery before it was revealed publicly and they were all sequestered until the results were aired. The league had just pulled the 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte, N.C., because of a controversial state law involving protections of the LGBT community, and moved it to New Orleans.

"I wouldn't say there's a movement starting but we're just letting everyone know that we're representing the 242, which is the Bahamas and we're coming", he said. Important, given the No. 2 rated prospect in the draft, Luka Dončić, played for the Slovenian club the past two years.

Ayton, however, may be too good to pass up. "You get to college and you have to learn to be involved in every play".

"It's God's plan", Ayton said. But he said that, at minimum, he'd expect Ayton to be similar to Drummond, except as a better scorer and not as prolific a rebounder. Either way, they will be filling a position of need. "He should have been a 5". He has great anticipation of the ball and looks like he will be able to alter many shots around the rim.

"This whole idea that he was not as involved as he should have been, I don't think anyone is going to buy that". This may change things in the Kings' favor yet again heading into the draft.

The NBA combine is now going on until Sunday, and more than 60 players are participating. No. 2 on the list this season was Udoka Azubuike, at 7-7. The ninth pick of the 1998 NBA Draft, Nowitzki has often discussed the struggles he endured as a rookie out of Germany, and there were even whispers from some corners early in his career that he was a bust. A realistic destination: Dallas, which has been searching for a defensive-minded center since it lost out on DeAndre Jordan in free agency in 2015.
