Suns win NBA Draft Lottery, hold No. 1 pick

Suns win NBA Draft Lottery, hold No. 1 pick Suns win NBA Draft Lottery, hold No. 1 pick

So it's basically impossible to expect them to land the top players of this class. Let us not forget the entire "Jimmermania" that occurred as he was expected to be a life savior to a franchise in distress. Kokoskov coached Slovenia - and Doncic - to the gold medal at the European championships last summer.

Denver - who is now slotted as the 14th pick, the final lottery selection - has the worst odds of any lottery team to move up into the top-three selections.

"That's one of the things where we're going to see how it translates", Pelton said of Doncic's defense. Sacramento went 27-55 and had the seventh-best lottery odds and just a six percent chance of landing the second pick. I think we all realize there was a great deal of luck in it, but I also know that he has been incredibly measured every step of the way.

Selecting a big man this early in the draft can alter a franchise's direction. The Memphis Grizzlies (fourth), Dallas Mavericks (fifth) and Orlando Magic (sixth).

The Suns and Kings were both represented in Chicago by their 2017 lottery selections Josh Jackson and De'Aaron Fox while actress Jami Gertz made a surprise appearance in honour of the Hawks. He's playing in the EuroLeague Final Four this weekend.

It's part of a big week already for the Suns, who introduced Igor Kokoskov as their new coach Monday and now will have the chance to pick No. 1. "I say to Atlanta, we are on our way".

The 7:30 p.m. ET draft lottery will determine the top 14 picks in the June 21 draft, with all teams in the lottery having a chance in the drawing for the top-three picks and the other 11 lottery picks, and the rest of the draft, determined by reverse order of record.

The lottery has been around since 1985, was tweaked to a weighted system in 1990 and will be changing again next year in an effort to discourage teams from tanking. The 19-year-old big man is considered the top prospect by most evaluation outlets, would be a nice down-low complement to guard Devin Booker, and serves as the sought-after hometown narrative, as Ayton played his college ball down the road for the Arizona Wildcats. That means National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver should call Ayton's name first.

"Extremely excited", Jackson said after the Suns were announced as the victor.

The Suns feel the same way about themselves.

We can speculate on a possible destination for Deandre Ayton when the NBA Draft takes place next month. This means he got an exceptional education in the game of basketball, may entice Phoenix to go with the more polished option.

It might be a reach for him late in the first round, but Metu has strengths that would fit in well with the Celtics.
