Buffalo Trolls Deandre Ayton for Tournament Loss After He's Taken No

  • Eight of the top 15 picks in the NBA draft were ALL-USA players

One more tidbit for those scoring at home: Picks No. 9 through 11 were all Wildcats. The Suns just went out and got the best possible big man to complement that skill set. The Dallas Mavericks looked all the way to Slovenia for the player they hope can be their next European superstar.

The Phoenix Suns' first pick, Deandre Ayton, and 31st pick, Elie Okobo, talk after the Suns press conference.

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

Doncic, who recently won the Euroleague MVP award, travelled to NY just days after sealing the Spanish league championship with Real Madrid. After languishing near the bottom of the Western Conference for the better part of a decade, the Suns finally hit rock bottom last season, finishing with a record of 21-61, worst in the National Basketball Association. The 19-year-old Doncic has already bagged the EuroLeague Most Valuable Player plum and the EuroLeague Final Four MVP. "They were very nice to me, and I think we had a very good relationship". I see you need some pieces. That's when I really got exposed, that's when the opportunities started, but it's just great. That's probably all I can say at this point regarding him, but we don't take him for granted.

Trump's immigration order sparks confusion and deep concern - global
Under the Obama administration, such families were usually ordered back to their home country but not charged as a criminal. But now, with the executive order , the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will take custody of the entire family.

Apparently, the Suns arrived at the decision to get Ayton upon conferring with the team's young stars, Devin Booker and Josh Jackson in particular, according to general manager Ryan McDonough during a recent appearance on Arizona Sports 98.7.

The Suns acquired the rights to Bridges from the 76ers in exchange for the rights to the 16th overall pick (Zhaire Smith) and Miami's 2021 first-round pick.

"This means the world to me", Ayton said. Marvin Bagley, selected by the Sacramento Kings at No. 2, has the third-best odds at 9/2. If the Boston Celtics can tap into any of Williams' potential as a rim-running, athletic big man, they may have found a gem to pair with their shifty point guards at No. 27.

The reigning champions Golden State Warriors, who have beaten the Cavs in three of the last four Finals, added shooting guard Jacob Evans with the 28th pick. But they ended up disappointed as NY went with Kentucky's Kevin Knox. On draft night, it should be about what's next for them in the league. "I'm a victor, and I'm going to help this team win". "They can chant Michael Porter all they want".

Kim leaves China as S. Korea urges 'concrete' plan on nukes
USA defence secretary James Mattis admitted today that he is not aware of North Korea taking any steps towards denuclearisation. In return Trump ordered the suspension of military exercises with South Korea, a longstanding demand of the Pyongyang regime.

"I met them one time", Porter said. The steep price paid by Chicago to pick up a non-lottery selection from New Orleans (22nd overall) back in February also might have scared off potential opportunists. With Phoenix reportedly also trying to land Gilgeous-Alexander, the Hornets managed to extract a pair of future second-round picks from Los Angeles, along with the 12th pick, which they used to select Miles Bridges.

Ayton previously mentioned the prospects of teaming with Booker to create one of the league's most dynamic tandems.

It's almost impossible to declare outright winners and losers hours after the draft has concluded (let alone years until players have fully developed), but there are stories and themes within the draft that qualify as positives and negatives.
