National Basketball Association draft -- Phoenix Suns select Deandre Ayton at No. 1

National Basketball Association draft -- Phoenix Suns select Deandre Ayton at No. 1

Talk about awkward. Anything the Cavs do to retain The King will likely include packaging their newest draft pick in a trade for another star, just like they did with Andrew Wiggins in 2014. "I'm just really happy to be part of his career".

The Dallas Mavericks has been looking for someone to replace their aging superstar Dirk Nowitzki.

Doncic arrived in NY on Wednesday after helping Spain's Real Madrid win its league championship after he won Euroleague MVP and Final Four MVP honors when they won that title this year.

The Suns, were BAD last season.

"I think we're an example for them", Okobo said.

"I think we had a few things early, a few things in the middle and a few things late".

The 76ers got former SMU guard Shake Milton, who was the 55th choice.

"(I grew) up around that brand, I'm used to that brand", Ayton said. I represent a whole nation (Bahamas) I just do that the best that I can and just help this community start over and be the best player I can possibly be. Ayton and Bagley are the tallest tandem of one-two picks since 2006.

This is a huge deal for the Suns, the seven-footer averaged 20.1 points, 11.6 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and recorded 24 double-doubles in his lone collegiate season.

The Mavericks will be hoping the relationship with Doncic goes something like the one the franchise has had with Dirk Nowitzki over the past 20 years, as the German power forward has become one of the greatest players in National Basketball Association history - and the best European player ever.

Phoenix Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough said the impression Ayton left during his solo workout solidified his selection as the No. 1 pick, setting a bar that McDonough said may have been impossible to top.

"I was just waiting for my name, and when he called it, my mind went blank", Ayton said. He's big and strong and has the tools to become a dominant offensive big man.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made the most highly-anticipated selection of the lower lottery, using the eighth pick, which they acquired from the Boston Celtics (originally owned by the Brooklyn Nets) in the Kyrie Irving trade last August, on Alabama point guard Collin Sexton. If you look at where they usually draft it's in the teens to 20.

"I'm not going to lie to you, I was stressed out", he said. Therefore, the team will have some flexibility in who they sign in free agency. "But they got Kevin Knox, and I'm willing to work and I'm willing to get better".

Being an All-American doesn't translate to being a lottery pick, apparently.

Not only that, but McDonough engineered a last-minute trade for swingman Mikal Bridges of Villanova, the 10th pick. The 2018 Final Four Most Outstanding Player went No. 17 overall to the Milwaukee Bucks, who made the postseason previous year and will presumably get a lot of national exposure thanks to the presence of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
