8 pick in National Basketball Association draft lottery

NBA draft lottery set

NBA draft lottery set

"Just made history. First time in the history of the franchise that we got (a) first pick and we have a chance to choose who (we) really like and who we think can change the franchise".

New Phoenix Suns head coach Igor Kokoskov coached Luka Doncic on the Slovenian national team at EuroBasket previous year and believes Doncic would be a good addition to the Suns, though that doesn't mean he'll be the selection at No. 1 overall. Ayton would be the ideal pick beyond pure stats. 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.

The next in a line of bigs to go off the board, Bagley is the player at the top of this next grouping.

As for how the rest of the ping pong balls fell, for the most part things went according to the odds. Now, the task of picking which talented college player they will take has begun. He isn't in this mock, though, and thus we'll give them Carter, another skilled big with the kind of length Orlando's front office craves. He has superstar upside, but after he spent much of last season sidelined with a back injury, interviews and medical evaluations will be critical.

Since it didn't cash in Tuesday, Boston will receive the Kings' or Sixers' first-round pick in 2019. This is the type of player owner Dan Gilbert tends to fall in love with, and Young can be a headline-grabber either alongside James or in his wake.

It's now up to the Suns to determine whether Ayton or Doncic is the better fit for what they want to do moving forward.

The Knicks are scheduled to interview Young on Friday, according to his father, and the family has made no secret that NY is a desirable destination. He'd enjoy the spotlight of playing in NY, and could make for a tenacious defensive backcourt with Frank Ntilikina, something that will be a priority for new coach David Fizdale.

To help you figure out which players you should emotionally detach yourself from before they're gone, we put together this list of potential trade packages. He has the footwork, touch, and a bit of Hakeem Olajuwon in him. If he develops a consistent jumper, he has all the remaining tools to be a stud. A realistic destination: Dallas, which has been searching for a defensive-minded center since it lost out on DeAndre Jordan in free agency in 2015.

If the Mavericks pick Porter they have to feel good about his medicals. The worst team has the most, the best of the 14 teams has the least.

Even if there was a slight chance of earning the top pick this year if Los Angeles was somehow able to go No. 1, deep down Philadelphia seemed confident in their chances of landing the No. 10 pick.
