NBA draft lottery: Reaction around the league, and what's next

Luka Doncic

However, while that is definitely the case for some-think of Philadelphia over the last few years and of Cleveland in 2003-other teams suffer further disappointment in the lottery and this year was no different.

The 2018 NBA Draft Lottery is just eight hours away and, at 5:30 p.m. MST on ESPN, the lottery results will be announced to officially set the order for the 2018 NBA Draft. They've had success when it comes to drafting perimeter scorers.

Whoever they choose to select, it'll be exciting for Suns fans as they'll have another huge talent to pair with Devin Booker. As usually, BetDSI Sportsbook has released the odds for the players that will have the highest chances of being selected as the overall No.1 pick in this year's draft. The 7-foot-1 forward averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds in 33.5 minutes per game this season while helping the Wildcats win the Pac-12 regular-season title and Pac-12 Tournament title. The only thing that is likely standing in his way from being the No. 1 pick is that Phoenix may want to go with the local guy. What's great about Porter, is that he can play both the small and power forward positions, and was considered as the possible number one overall draft pick as little as a year ago. The Suns search for a big man could be solved with the top pick.

Ironically, the Phoenix Suns' two greatest needs are at point guard and center.

The Suns had the worst defense in the National Basketball Association and finished with a 21-61 record. The temptation to select Dončić is there because Phoenix's new coach, Igor Kokoskov, coached Dončić in Slovenia to a gold medal in last year's European championship.

Ryan would also be able to choose any other single piece of legislation to plug the fourth slot in the Queen of the Hill approach. During a party-wide meeting Wednesday morning, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., dressed down the moderate rebels.

Boston came into draft lottery on Tuesday night with a 2.9 percent chance of moving up to two or three with the Lakers' pick acquired in the 76ers trade.

Williams is a springy, athletic big who could fill a void that will be left by DeAndre Jordan sooner rather than later. He has elite physical gifts and is the kind of big man that can affect all facets of the game. He has the ability to knock down a 15-foot jumper, although it is not consistent. His physical presence allows him to easily finish at the rim aggressively. It might not be possible for the Suns to get him, but they need someone like him. He'd be the primary rim protector for the team, something Phoenix lacked last season.

When it comes to Ayton, there were two knocks on his game that anxious scouts this season: First, that he was not as engaged as he should have been, and he sometimes lacks passion, focus and intensity; and, second, that he did not dominate defensively the way he should have.

If he's on the board, Ayton should be an easy pick for Sacramento. In that scenario, it's pick your poison. If they don't switch, they'd risk letting the reigning three-point contest victor, Booker, shoot open threes all game. Names such as Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns are synonymous with versatility and a true evolution of the center position.
