Suns may target Luka Doncic with No. 1 pick

Hearing Ayton is not a done deal there by any means. The direction of the Suns' franchise will be determined by which player they choose. There are several prospects in the upcoming National Basketball Association draft that project to be stars. The Suns took Neal Walk. That streak continued Tuesday in Chicago, where the Knicks came in slotted for the ninth overall pick and landed there when the ping pong balls were at rest. "That could be in the traditional sense with a point guard, or it could be a big guy that can draw double teams, that can pass, that can shoot, that can run the floor, that can, you know, command attention". The Pistons keep the pick, which has the 12th best odds of moving up, if it falls in the top four, but otherwise it will belong to the Clippers. If Ayton is drafted by the Suns, he would become the first player in UA program history to be a first overall selection.

However, Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said the team is "unlikely" to trade the pick, according to Gerald Bourguet of Hoops Habit.

The list of players selected first overall features some of the most legendary names in National Basketball Association history, including Abdul-Jabbar, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Tim Duncan, Shaquille O'Neal and Hakeem Olajuwon.

The Cavs had just a 2.8 percent chance to get the top overall pick and just a 9.9 percent chance of landing in the top three.

The organization has been dormant for the last eight years.

Or, they could select one of the other talented players in a highly-regarded draft. Ending that drought will take proper scouting by the Suns' front office and talent evaluators.

There will be multiple franchise-altering talents available with the 3 overall pick, though DeAndre Ayton and Luka Doncic will likely be off the board by this point. That Spurs team had Tim Duncan alternating between power forward and center most nights.
