Kings Draw Second Pick in NBA Lottery

  • Luka Doncic

"The 7'0", 260 pound, 19-year-old averaged 20.1 points, 11.6 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in his freshman year.

Phoenix had the best chance of winning the top pick after finishing with the league's worst win-loss record and the 2018 lottery stuck to script. "But No. 10 has some pretty good history". Doncic is 6-foot-8 and 230 pounds, displaying quickness and play-making ability that could be a cornerstone for most rosters... except Phoenix's, which already has Booker and Warren as shooters there. OKC will select with the 53rd and 57th picks.

Villanova All-American Mikal Bridges could be a great option for the Sixers with the 10th pick. He's a multi-dimensional defensive standout and a solid 3-point shooter.

Still, despite not going back to North Texas with the mega prize they came here for, Finley saw the glass as half-full and the Mavs' potential of drafting a superior player with dynamic skills as something that's still in the cards.

"Just like Brett says, defense first, pace and space", vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley said when asked what the Sixers are looking for with the pick. "More than anything, he's the type of player who just helps you win games".

"I feel very strongly that we'll get a good player", said Jeff Weltman, the Magic's president of basketball operations.

The Suns are in a position with the number one pick that they could offer it up in trade for the star player that they haven't been able to acquire through trade or free agency. The best idea might be to package those two picks and try to move up in the draft to get a better player. Technically, Cleveland can't now trade its first-round selection, which it acquired from the Boston Celtics by way of the Brooklyn Nets as a part of the Kyrie Irving deal, but the Cavs could work in conjunction with a potential trade partner throughout the draft process on a trade that would then be consummated after the draft. "Elite physical tools, soft touch at the rim and a promising jump shot make Ayton the likely top pick", according to SI's latest Top 100 Prospect Rankings.

If the pick goes to the Sixers, Boston gets the better 2019 first-rounder between Sacramento and Philly, protected for No. 1. If the Pistons hold onto this year's pick, it remains top-four protected until 2021, when it becomes unprotected.

In June, the Sixers also will select 38th, 39th, 56th and 60th in the second round.

She told The Atlanta Journal Constitution her husband selected her to serve as the team's representative during the live announcement of the results on ESPN. "But it was fun". He does not have as much upside, but that may not matter if the Suns think that they are much more likely to turn things around if they had a quality shooting guard.

"I don't want to talk about it", the Celtics coach said. "Bad luck would have been dropping out".
