  • Elton Brand, Sixers Hope To Land Top Pick In NBA Draft Lottery Again

The Phoenix Suns entered Tuesday's NBA Draft Lottery with the best odds to land the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft and they left with just that.

The Bulls are in an interesting position for this draft because they are coming off their first year of rebuilding with a roster that was the NBA's fourth-youngest by average age (25) last season.

The Phoenix Suns will get the No. 1 pick - they had the best odds of getting the top pick after finishing last in the league during the regular season.

Despite being projected as the top pick and his desire to team up with Booker, Ayton is no sure bet to be a Sun. The Atlanta Hawks also moved up and will have the No. 3 selection.

The Pistons needed to draw into the top three to retain their pick - they had only a 2.5 percent chance.

Together, they helped Slovenia win the 2017 Eurobasket title with a win over Serbia in the final game. Should be. But picking outside of the top 3 after the dismal season the Grizzlies just had makes this writer a little uncomfortable given the Grizzlies' poor drafting in the Chris Wallace era. Ironically the Mavericks won the tiebreaker for the extra combination. Memphis is expected to begin rebuilding soon. He does not seem an ideal fit with the team already having Jonathan Isaac and Aaron Gordon's restricted free agent rights.

Duke forward Wendell Carter Jr., Missouri forward Michael Porter Jr., Oklahoma point guard Trae Young and Alabama point guard Collin Sexton still might be available when the Magic draft. You will hear a lot of trade rumors emerge from the practice facility in Camden, whether that's on Philadelphia's end or teams trying to drive up the value of their own picks and players by floating the Sixers in rumors.

These are all certainly flawed players.

"I think it's extremely important to have the coach in house because the more we spend time with David and the more he gets a chance to spend with these guys we bring in to work out and see what players may or may not fit with how he's going to coach the team and his personality, " Perry said.

That is the beauty of the Draft.

Prior to 2018, the Cavaliers have made the No. 8 overall pick in the NBA Draft on four occasions.

With a new head coach taking over in Orlando, the first order of business should be to find a point guard who can run the offense before building up the rest of the roster.
