However, the circumstances were completely different this year thanks to the Sixers finishing with a 52-30 record during the regular season along with earning a trip to the semifinals in playoffs before falling to the Boston Celtics. Last year, the Suns had the second-best odds of receiving the No. 1 pick but ended up with the No. 4 pick. When Kokoskov was asked about his former player, he raved about him. To be a good passer you have to understand the game.
Jaren Jackson (6-11, 242 lbs), is a freshman out of Michigan State who is described as a terror on the defensive side.
However, Jackson has incredible upside, not only averaging.513 from the field, but he is a solid free-throw shooter for a big man as well, averaging almost 80%.
The next in a line of bigs to go off the board, Bagley is the player at the top of this next grouping. He's so skilled offensively as a ball handler and passer, he's a great rebounder, and eventually he should be a high-level shooter. He was the ACC Player of the Year and has the potentional to become a rebounding machine at the rate he is going.
Why him: "Despite Phoenix's ties to Luka Doncic, the Suns can't afford to miss on this pick, and Ayton is the safer choice".
In an interview with ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth, Ayton discussed the rise in global acclaim for Bahamian basketball in recent years with the popularity of himself and Buddy Hield. He averaged 17.7 minutes in his three contests, averaging 10.0 PPG and 6.7 RPG.
Since losing Amar'e Stoudmire to the New York Knicks in the summer of 2010, Phoenix has gone a combined 253-387.
The Kings simply lost in a way that pleased the National Basketball Association, and subsequently, had the biggest climb up the draft board of any team, which hardly seems coincidental. His defensive skills are his best assets, but his lack of offensive use could be the reason why the Suns will pass on making him their No.1 pick.
Despite not getting a top-three draft pick, the Chicago Bulls could be in a prime position to take a top center.
Field - Any other player (+500) - Trae Young (Oklahoma, 27.4 ppg, 8.7 apg), Collin Sexton (Alabama, 19.2 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 3.6 apg), and a few more players are expected to make the top 10 first round picks.
