Arizona basketball: Suns 'don't know yet' if they'll pick Deandre Ayton

  • Why Luka Doncic, not Deandre Ayton, is the generational talent Mavericks need from 2018 NBA draft

The Los Angeles Lakers first-round pick that Sam Hinkie acquired at the 2015 trade deadline for Michael Carter-Williams finally conveyed, and the Sixers will have the No. 10 pick in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft.

The Suns had a 25.0 percent probability of winning the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, highest of any team participating in the Lottery.

"This is a historic night for the Phoenix Suns", general manager Ryan McDonough said in a statement.

The Sacramento Kings, the Atlanta Hawks, the Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks will round out the top five picks.

The 2018 NBA Draft will be held on Thursday, June 21, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and televised on ESPN at 4 p.m. (Phoenix time).

As for the Suns, they have three great candidates for No. 1, all with ties to either Arizona or new Phoenix coach Igor Kokoskov.

Irish wonder Ryan O'Shaughnessy - who previously ranked fifth in Britain's Got Talent back 2012 - is also in the running. Italy has a powerful anti-war song that lists numerous terror attacks that have blighted the world in recent years.

Next year, there will be four spots selected, rather than three, and the odds will be much different; the teams with the three worst records will each have a 14 percent chance of getting selected, while the fourth team will have a 12.5 percent chance, fifth will be 10.5 percent and sixth will be 9 percent. Kokoskov coached Slovenia - and Doncic - to the gold medal at the European championships last summer.

Real Madrid guard Luka Doncic, Michigan State forward Jaren Jackson Jr. and Duke forward Marvin Bagley III are among the other highly regarded names. "Those of us in the room in Chicago felt the tension, then it was an unbelievable feeling to see it revealed that we received the No. 1 selection".

The upcoming draft is full of NBA-ready talent.

Despite being projected as the top pick and his desire to team up with Booker, Ayton is no sure bet to be a Sun. The 76ers, who kept the Los Angeles Lakers pick fell to No. 10 overall.

But the following is my first post-lottery mock draft.

The Charlotte Hornets will go 11th, the Los Angeles Clippers will get 12th and 13th - the former coming from the Detroit Pistons - while the Denver Nuggets get 14th pick. "Hopefully it will go my way (Tuesday) night, and I will continue to put my stamp on it".
