Suns win draft lottery, Cavs will pick eighth

Going forward, the three teams with the worst regular-season records will all have 14 percent chances of winning the No. 1 pick, the fourth-worst team will have a 12.5 percent chance and the fifth-worst 10.5 percent. So with plenty of options to now consider after finding out their fate, let's take a look at three ways the Sixers can use this No. 10 pick to continue getting better heading into next season. Kokoskov coached Slovenia - and Doncic - to the gold medal at the European championships last summer.

"We've got to see what happens in the lottery first and see where our position is", Memphis executive vice president of basketball operations John Hollinger said. But even with every different answer you come across, the overwhelming opinion is that Luka Doncic is either the best, second-best or third-best prospect that is expected to be in this year's NBA Draft class. The Kings will hope whoever they choose will go on to have a better career than Ellison, who was plagued by injuries throughout his 11 years in the National Basketball Association. I fully expect some insane out of left field pick from them such as Trae Young or even a trade to move down in the draft. They also have rookie wonder Josh Jackson, who, after a slow to the season came on late and showed his true potential.

Lady Luck has finally smiled on the Phoenix Suns.

Ayton's shortcomings on defense have left open the possibility that the Suns could take Doncic.

Cleveland was in the lottery because it owns the Brooklyn Nets' first-round pick for 2018, thanks to the franchise-shifting trade in which the Cavaliers received two picks (including that one) and three players from the Boston Celtics for Irving. The 19-year-old big man is considered the top prospect by most evaluation outlets, would be a nice down-low complement to guard Devin Booker, and serves as the sought-after hometown narrative, as Ayton played his college ball down the road for the Arizona Wildcats. That means his vote, for now anyway, is Ayton.

The film also aims to answer why Houston's family did not step in before she accidentally drowned in February 2012. Houston's alleged abuser, Dee Dee Warwick died in 2008 , four years before the tragic death of Whitney Houston .

Even in his absence, though, Doncic created a stir when he told reporters in Europe this week that he was not sure he would be playing his final games for Real Madrid.

The Suns feel the same way about themselves.

As for how the rest of the ping pong balls fell, for the most part things went according to the odds. Ayton is actually a bit ahead at this point, with the Consensus Mock Draft noting that more analysts have gone with him as the guy that the Suns will pick.

"Hopefully we won't be sitting up here too much longer", Jackson said.
