Phoenix Suns Win Number 1 Overall Pick In 2018 NBA Draft

Elton Brand, Sixers Hope To Land Top Pick In NBA Draft Lottery Again

The Phoenix Suns won the first overall pick for the first time in franchise history, so they have every reason to whoop it up.

The Suns, an NBA-worst 21-61 this season, had the highest odds at the No. 1 pick at 25 percent entering the drawing.

Suns GM Ryan McDonough told the Republic that the Suns "don't know yet" who they will take and, before the lottery, said Doncic would not be a sure thing at No. 1 despite the connection to Kokoskov. The Sacramento Kings, with an 18.3 percent chance to select in the top three, will pick second, and the Atlanta Hawks (42.6 percent at top three) will make the No. 3 pick.

Despite their proximity to McKale Center, and UA's production of National Basketball Association players, the Suns haven't drafted a Wildcat player for 22 years and have only taken four in the first two rounds.

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.

Next year, there will be four spots selected, rather than three, and the odds will be much different; the teams with the three worst records will each have a 14 percent chance of getting selected, while the fourth team will have a 12.5 percent chance, fifth will be 10.5 percent and sixth will be 9 percent.

These five players have a chance to be around when the Cavaliers pick eighth, and they'd be the best fits to complement James.

"I can't compare those two guys because I lived with Luka".

But of all the players who will be available at 10 overall, which fit the 76ers roster, and could serve as the missing piece in a championship puzzle?

There's still over a month away until the NBA Draft, and we'll see what the Cavs do with the pick as the NBA season comes to an end.

The Charlotte Hornets will go 11th, the Los Angeles Clippers will get 12th and 13th - the former coming from the Detroit Pistons - while the Denver Nuggets get 14th pick.

Jackson surprised Jazmyne with an invitation to attend the 2018 NBA Draft Lottery last week after she thought she was attending just another day of physical therapy.
