With Ayton, Bagley, NBA draft could be big night for big men

2018 NBA Draft results

Suns general manager Ryan McDonough didn't exactly hide his intentions, either. Mikal Bridges, the No. 10 pick from Villanova who thought he was staying in Philadelphia with the 76ers - who employ his mother - but was dealt to Phoenix for the rights to No. 16 pick Zhaire Smith of Texas Tech and a 2012 first-round pick from the Miami Heat. That can only happen when teams decide to play it safe and decide not to move around the board. Then, he got traded. Not everyone will leave a mark on the National Basketball Association when all is said and done, but it is still something that I like to keep an eye on. "We just have to stick together, get a great chemistry and start a winning legacy in Phoenix".

"I sat there and I watched". "I want to start my own thing".

"We've been talking about it through high school, and now here we are", Ayton said.

"We really just built a relationship...going on the bus, being at the hotel, just being around each other all the time; just cracking jokes".

"(Bridges) is a cool guy.

The choice came as no surprise to analysts who called it "the worst-kept secret" this year, to the characteristically boisterous crowd at Barclays Center - or to Ayton, who said after his only workout with the Suns, "I know I'm going No. 1". Ayton described growing up with Bagley and then being drafted right before him as "crazy". It could be a not very good pick. The top prospects of this year have been talked about for months now, so there was a real opportunity presented for the network to capture the long-awaited selections with a dialogue pointing to the next step for the draftees and their respective franchises. Starting with the Arison family and Pat Riley. Young has the fourth-best odds at 7/1.

OPEC agrees to increase oil output 1 million barrels a day
Much of the current production shortfall has come from Venezuela, where an economic crisis has savaged petroleum production. Russian Federation and other non-OPEC oil producers will now meet OPEC in a bid to secure their participation in the pact.

Even on National Basketball Association draft night, some people in Philadelphia are already thinking about free agency and the pursuit of LeBron James. They are in the Easter Conference, they are in a destination market. Following his selection at 8th overall by Cleveland, Sexton was coaxed by the interviewer to make a pitch for LeBron to stay. They also have cap space in 2020.

"We weighed the pros and cons of trading it heavily and carefully", McDonough said.

In the case of Ayton, a player expected to go No. 1 in the draft for quite a while, his destination was only touched upon.

George King:"Try your best". "He respects my game, I respect his". He's always on the offensive glass as well. He played in all 104 games, playoffs included, last season and averaged 34.0 points in the playoffs.

That task falls on first-year head coach Igor Kokoskov and his staff.

Also selected in the bottom third of the first round were: Boise State forward Chandler Hutchison (22nd by Chicago), University of California Los Angeles point guard Aaron Holiday (23rd by the Indiana Pacers), IMG Academy point guard Anfernee Simons (24th by the Portland Trail Blazers), Michigan centre Moritz Wagner (25th by the Los Angeles Lakers), Wichita State guard Landry Shamet (26th by Philadelphia), and Bosnia & Herzegovina forward Dzanan Musa (29th by Brooklyn). One thing that really, really kind of draws attention is how fast he improved and how fast his game changed in the last six months to previous year so we're just hoping that's going to go up and we are going to help him become even better.
