The Portland Trail Blazers used the 10th pick of the 2013 draft on C.J. McCollum, out of Lehigh.

In various ways, the team already has an element of familiarity with each one of them. Arizona's bad showing in the NCAA tournament against No. 13 Buffalo won't hurt Ayton's stock, but it did highlight his deficiencies.

Ayton will have obvious local appeal to the Suns, as would Bagley - an Arizona native. And long-time Mavs followers remember before that successful stretch fueled by Nowitzki and his enormous talents, the struggling Mavs missed the playoffs every season from the 1990-'91 campaign through the 1999-'00 season.

For the first time in franchise history, the Suns have ownership of the number one overall pick, and though lottery representative Josh Jackson was a bit subdued in his celebration, there is no doubt that this is the team's biggest win in a long time. Devin Booker is a star in the National Basketball Association who the Suns can build around.

"But as of today we haven't even decided on what position we're even going after". "So wherever we are, hopefully we keep taking steps forward".

"No big deal. It's a deep draft", Kings vice president and general manager Vlade Divac said. The 7-foot-1 forward averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds in 33.5 minutes per game this season while helping the Wildcats win the Pac-12 regular-season title and Pac-12 Tournament title. Cooper never played for Dallas, but did go on to be the athletic director at Texas A&M University-Commerce.

"It's God's plan", Ayton said.

Well, this year Kristen put her money where her mouth is and literally kicked off her heels in front of the world's media. It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him.

Doncic, who's now playing in the EuroLeague Final Four, told European reporters he's not sure if these are the last two games he'll play overseas. adding he'll make a decision after the season. The Suns took Neal Walk.

He said he would obviously welcome the chance to go back to Arizona, where he was born and raised. While odds say that there will eventually be a regression to the mean, betting on the Nuggets moving up is a sketchy proposition. You got to have a front office that knows how to scout. Luka is a very talented player.

"We have No. 1", McDonough said. Ayton is the best overall big man out of the bunch projected to be picked in this year's lottery.

The Phoenix Suns will select first at the 2018 NBA Draft next month after winning the No 1 pick at the lottery in Chicago on Tuesday night.

The Suns aren't holding all the cards.

Many assume that Phoenix will take Doncic at No. 1, as the 19-year-old has demonstrated an unreal feel for the game at a professional level overseas, possessing a smooth-as-silk offensive game, complete with a deadly three-point shot.

"We'll certainly weigh it pretty heavily", McDonough said of their relationship. "I think we'll have a great choice, no matter who we select".
