For the first time in team history, the Phoenix Suns will select #1 in the draft!
At 21-61 this past season, they cashed in on the league's highest lottery odds (25%) - now, they'll have to decide which prospect will lead them into the future: DeAndre Ayton or Luka Doncic.
Both players are viable candidates for #1, have natural ties in PHX. Ayton played college ball at 'Zona while new Suns head coach Igor Kokoskov coached Doncic on the Slovenian national team.
Last night's other big winner was Sacramento, who moved up 5! spots to #2. They'll happily pick whomever "slides" between the two.
Here's the full draft lottery results:
