The second overall pick went to the Sacramento Kings, who had just a 5.3 per cent chance of landing the top overall pick. The worst team has the most, the best of the 14 teams has the least.
It's disappointing the Dallas Mavericks won't be picking in the top-4 of the draft but it might be blessing in disguise.
There was a scary drop-off in the second half of the season, but that was likely due to the incredible amount of defensive attention he received along with how much he was asked to do for the Sooners.
"What happens a lot of times is, if you're a 7-footer, you go through and play in high school and you dominate just because you are so much bigger than everyone else". From here, I provide a scope of where they currently are now and which prospect can elevate their team towards a brighter horizon ahead.
Booker and Warren are some of the league's most dynamic young scorers, and both are on the roster for at least another two years. He's also versatile enough to play either guard spot and has good instincts on offense. While the Suns hired Igor Kokoskov, who coached Doncic with the Slovenian national team, as their head coach this offseason, Givony said there's a chance the Suns could draft Ayton, who is considered a safer pick than Doncic.
Whoever they choose to select, it'll be exciting for Suns fans as they'll have another huge talent to pair with Devin Booker.
If there was ever a moment where the Suns would look to trade up like they did for Marquese Chriss two years ago, this would be the one.
Why him: "At 19 years old, Luka Doncic is already one of the best players in Europe".
A frontcourt piece is a lock for the King's selection, but which prospect is the most enticing to the organization at number two overall?
Was the Amway Center built on a Native American burial ground? He has great athleticism and can shoot the three pretty well. Bagley, the Duke freshman star this past season, is an Arizona native. And Kokoskov is not short on praise for the point guard.
Ayton played his college basketball nearby at Arizona and had a terrific season with the Wildcats in his one campaign with them. If Denver is not announced as the 14th pick in the draft immediately, it will signify that Denver has jumped into the top-three picks.
The Hawks, like the Suns, got their lottery result one day after introducing a new coach.
Bridges came back to Michigan State and disappointed a bit as a sophomore, but his versatility makes him an interesting fit in Charlotte on a team seeking a new identity with a new coach. The outlook on the franchise as he nears his end is mixed with a bevy of elder statesmen, a player amidst his rising prime in Harrison Barnes and a young building block for the future in Point Guard Dennis Smith Jr. Now they'll see if it pays off. They began the season by losing eight of their first nine games, digging themselves an early hole and setting themselves up for the inevitable tank. Wesley Matthews made a decision to opt-in on a contract that rewards him a huge sum of money but he's a shell of his former prime self.
Michael Porter Jr. has arguably the highest ceiling of any player in this draft.
It's believed that they will ultimately select either DeAndre Ayton or Luka Doncic as they have familiarity with both players.
