The Suns did the easy part, winning the lottery.

Now comes the hard part, choosing between DeAndre Ayton and Luka Doncic.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7:

There are still more interviews and workouts to conduct. Phoenix needn’t make its choice now, and more information could tilt the scales.

But Ayton was already the widely expected pick. The 7-foot center is a physical force with diverse offensive skills. He has plenty of defensive tools, though he’s inconsistent on that end. The teenager has a bright future.

This would leave Doncic to the Kings at No. 2.
