Igor Kokoskov: Luka Doncic would 'fit great' on Suns

Teams hope to find luck in NBA draft lottery
Deandre Ayton thinks he should go No. 1 to the Phoenix Suns in next month's NBA Draft, and with good reason. Of course, like any draft, it will take a few years to see what real impact these young men will make on the team that selects them.
Doncic is widely considered one of the top-3 prospects in the draft. Aside from grabbing Dillon Brooks 45th overall last season, Memphis' recent draft history is pretty rough, but the hope was that this injury-ravaged season would result in the front office adding a transformational player that would be nearly impossible to find otherwise.
Arizona freshman Deandre Ayton is widely expected to be a strong candidate to go No. 1, and since he was at the lottery he now has a sense for how his immediate future might play out. Ayton would be the ideal pick beyond pure stats.
Nailing a pick like this is extremely hard, and fans of rebuilding teams do not tend to be forgiving when a front office hits a single rather than a home run.
It's an adjustment that he and the Suns will happily be making. You've got to come up with the goods night after night, which is a lot of pressure.
Luka Doncic is playing with the heads of the NBA's most talent-needy teams.
These are good days for the Suns, who have gone through three terrible seasons and eight consecutive playoff-less campaigns. Phoenix would be wise to take him at No. 1, although there are already rumblings that the Suns could take Luka Doncic with that pick. The standout shooting guard was the 2016 Most Improved Player. Ayton is actually a bit ahead at this point, with the Consensus Mock Draft noting that more analysts have gone with him as the guy that the Suns will pick. The power forward averaged 10.9 points per game and 5.8 rebounds per contest while averaging only 21.8 minutes per game. For him to say that this is his final two games in Europe would do no favors for himself or his team.
However, Jackson has incredible upside, not only averaging.513 from the field, but he is a solid free-throw shooter for a big man as well, averaging almost 80%. He's so skilled offensively as a ball handler and passer, he's a great rebounder, and eventually he should be a high-level shooter.
Brand was jokingly asked if he was bad luck, considering the Sixers' first pick was no lower than third in the previous four lotteries. He's got quick feet and has a high basketball IQ as well.
With the Lakers staying put, the pick will now stay with the Sixers and won't be shipping up to Boston this go-around.
Looks awfully familiar to a certain someone's last name.
In an interview with ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth, Ayton discussed the rise in global acclaim for Bahamian basketball in recent years with the popularity of himself and Buddy Hield.
Porter has elite size and quickness.
Orlando entered the lottery with a 35.9 percent chance of receiving the sixth pick, the highest probability of any outcome. "He's willing to make a pass, he's willing to play for his teammates and make other people better on the court".
