Potential, not proof, tops in draft

Draymond Green Joel Embiid

Deandre Ayton is learning that it's quite lonely at the top. While the Sixers get another go in the first round next year, the Suns look much better than they did last year, and the pick they yielded to Philly might not be top-10 next year.

The Suns never before had selected first overall in the draft, and with Ayton now on board, they hope not to do so again in the near future.

So ask Nelson about a player the Mavericks clearly coveted heading into the draft in Doncic, and he'll choose his words carefully regarding the 19-year-old from Slovenia.

The Suns stayed close to home to take the 7-foot-1 Ayton, the center from Arizona who averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds in his lone season in Tucson. We want to respect his space during this process, and I continue to have really good dialogue with his management team as he goes through that process.

"I'm really happy to be a part of the Phoenix Suns now because we can really start a winning legacy with Devin Booker and Josh Jackson and all those other guys".

The Cleveland Cavaliers used the eighth pick to take Alabama guard Collin Sexton, while the champion Golden State Warriors chose Cincinnati guard Jacob Evans with the 29th pick.

It appeared Bridges was a flawless fit in Philadelphia when he was drafted, and his mother even works for the Sixers as a vice president of human resources.

The Suns kept busy Thursday night, later acquiring the draft rights to Mikal Bridges in a deal that sent Zhaire Smith, selected at No. 16, to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Latest on Trump and North Korea

The Charlotte Hornets and Los Angeles Clippers swapped spots at Nos.

Michael Porter Jr. insists that he's the best player in this draft.

Sidelined nearly all of last season due to a back injury, Porter insisted the Nuggets will not regret making the selection. "I'm not sure what position he is".

He will instantly bring competitiveness, intensity and most importantly spacing to Phoenix next year, and will give the Suns a viable option down low - something that has been missing since Amare Stoudamire left the franchise.

The Huerter pick followed the selections of OR shooting guard Troy Brown by the Washington Wizards at No. 15, Smith by Phoenix (and dealt to Philadelphia) at No. 16, Villanova shooting guard Donte DiVincenzo by the Milwaukee Bucks at No. 17, and Miami shooting guard Lonnie Walker IV by the San Antonio Spurs at 18th.

The Big Ten matched its four NCAA teams with four first-round draft picks. National player of the year Jalen Brunson then was picked by Dallas with the third pick of the second round.

This is not the first time the Hawks have quickly traded the number three overall pick.

At the start of the second round, the Suns snagged a French point guard, Elie Okobo.
