Ayton Fine Candidate For Suns' No. 1 Pick In Nba Draft

Memphis Grizzlies awarded No. 4 overall pick in 2018 NBA Draft Lottery        2018 NBA Draft to be held on Thursday June 21 in New York City

They have a couple nice building blocks in De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield, but adding a playmaking wing like Doncic could make this team one of the most fun watches in the Western Conference - and that's saying a lot. The pick came from the Los Angeles Lakers.

If the Mavericks pick Porter they have to feel good about his medicals. We all, the fans and the players, suffered through this season together. Placing Ayton with Booker could give the Phoenix Suns a Shaquille O'Neal-Kobe Bryant or Shaq-Penny Hardaway type of duo, which would be primed for future success.

This is a year with a lot of big men that should be selected within the first five or six picks of the draft.

Stevens had no idea of the value the four first-round picks would reap.

With that being said, I want to look at the big picture. Phoenix is also on its second go-around in terms of tanking over the last decade, having tried this in the 2013/2014 range, only to trip and fall into a 48-win season where they finished ninth in the West. Even if they just improve by ten games this coming season that would surely go a long way with the fanbase who is desperate for a victor.

The NBA Draft takes places June 21 at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, New York. His charms apparently did the trick as the Suns won and now own the first overall pick in a loaded draft that includes Arizona center DeAndre Ayton, Duke forward Marvin Bagley III and Real Madrid point guard Luka Doncic. 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. The last time the purple and white had a pick this high was back in the 1991 draft when they had the third overall pick.

OK, I know we came to an agreement with each other that Young is in that other group, but I really do believe he has a chance of falling within the Suns' trade range. He is still working on his offensive game and must get bigger and stronger to be successful at the next level. Still, you can't blame them for crossing their fingers (and likely toes, too) as they wished for some sort of statistical miracle to play out. While the Wildcats ended up getting bounced by Buffalo in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Ayton still scored highly with KenPom's player ratings (seventh in the site's player of the year metric) and was a highly efficient player overall. Someone like J.J. He's a vocal leader, and he's going to score.

With some more luck, Jackson won't be going to more lotteries.

Sacramento will pick No. 2 and Atlanta got the No. 3 pick - both of them moving up and bucking some odds to get there.

If the player that is eventually picked turns out to be a bust, then of course it matters. Let's remember that very few number one picks go on to make an immediate impact on the team that picks them.

Offensively, actually, is where I think Bridges is being a bit slept on. His numbers have gradually increased since his rookie year and just this season he averaged around 12 points and 7 rebounds a game, but his rookie deal is nearing foreclosure and the conclusion is barring a breakout performance next year, Sacramento probably won't re-sign him.
