NBA Draft Lottery: Suns Brought WNBA-Themed Lucky Charms To Help Win

Wave goodbye to your lottery dreams Bulls fans and think about lucky No. 7

Coming off an outrageously talented draft class a year ago, the upcoming draftees have a lot to live up to.

Theoretically, this year's draft has enough talent to ensure Memphis could get its hands on an exciting prospect even when picking outside the top three, but the sense of disappointment will likely linger for a while in Tennessee.

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. That Spurs team had Tim Duncan alternating between power forward and center most nights. Now they'll see if it pays off.

"That's a long way off", Bulls VP John Paxson said, when posed with the possibility of pulling that off again, according to Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic. We all want the one-and-only Sacramento Pizza Guy back. And it goes against everything as a competitive person that you believe in. Every team has players they like.

The C's will receive Sacramento's first-round pick after next season - unless it lands at No.1 in the 2019 lottery - after the Lakers pick (owned by Philadelphia) remained at No. 10 in last night's National Basketball Association draft lottery.

"We have a small target grouping in mind, but we're not going to rule anything out at this point", McDonough said.

Tanking got plenty of attention this season, and a few minutes on January 29 might have decided the race. Last night, the Celtics took down the Cavaliers, taking a 2-0 lead heading into Game 3. Placing Ayton with Booker could give the Phoenix Suns a Shaquille O'Neal-Kobe Bryant or Shaq-Penny Hardaway type of duo, which would be primed for future success. If you can stick with a team, especially one like the Philadelphia 76ers who (somewhat intentionally) underwent one of the worst stretches of extended non-competitiveness in recent memory, then you're probably ready for a deep romantic relationship with another human being. Flip that January 29 outcome, and it would been the Grizzlies with the best chance at the No. 1 pick.

The Phoenix Suns never seemed to have luck on their side, whether it's the NBA Draft Lottery or the playoffs.

The NBA combine is now going on until Sunday, and more than 60 players are participating. I've spent a lot of time watching Duke's Grayson Allen and Kansas' Devonte Graham over the last four years.

I look at this situation post-lottery, and think this would be an intriguing way to go.

So how do they go about it?

Currently, two prospects have stood out from the pack in terms of their chances of being selected first overall and they are the University of Arizona's DeAndre Ayton and Real Madrid's Luka Doncic. Ayton declined the invitation to participate in Chicago, and Doncic's season in Europe isn't over yet.
