Locals chime in and share thoughts on Phoenix Suns newest member

Locals chime in and share thoughts on Phoenix Suns newest member

Armed with the first overall pick - along with the #16, #31 and #59 selections - no team was better positioned to bolster its core than Phoenix.

Beginning with overall No. 1 pick DeAndre Ayton, eight of the first 15 players taken in the NBA Draft on Thursday night were former American Family Insurance ALL-USA selections in high school. In trading with Dallas for No. 5 and acquiring another first-round pick, the Hawks got the best of both worlds.

According to ESPN's Pedro Gomez - who captured the photo - the billboard featuring No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton, guard Devin Booker and forward Josh Jackson was put up along Interstate 10 on Friday following the draft, just west of State Route 143 in Phoenix.

The Mavericks also gave up a future first-round pick to draft Doncic, who only arrived in NY on Wednesday after helping Spain's Real Madrid win its league championship after he won Euroleague MVP and Final Four MVP honors when they won that title this year. After languishing near the bottom of the Western Conference for the better part of a decade, the Suns finally hit rock bottom last season, finishing with a record of 21-61, worst in the National Basketball Association.

"I've been talking to Dallas a lot". The 21-year-old earned Third Team All-America honors and was named to the All-Final Four Team after averaging 17.2 points in the NCAA tournament including 19 in the title game victory over MI.

The drafts sees teams select the best young college players and eligible global talent.

"I'm not going to lie to you, I was stressed out", he said. Maybe my sports expectations are too high for a Disney-owned company, and maybe the point of the show is to be just that, a show.

"We continue to have good dialogue with his management team", Altman said.

Trump supporters steadfast despite the immigration uproar
Under the Obama administration, such families were usually ordered back to their home country but not charged as a criminal. Many Republicans fear a backlash from the Republican base if they vote for the legislation and Trump turns against it.

The Celtics only had one pick in this year's draft, but they appear to have landed a steal in Texas A&M's Robert Williams, a lottery-level talent with some minor red flags that a solid organization like Boston should be able to handle.

In his only season at Duke University, the 19-year-old Consensus First-Team All-American averaged 21 points and 11.1 rebounds at an astounding 61% shooting clip with a 40% three-point norm to boot.

This marks the first time Arizona has had a player selected No. 1 overall.

Deandre Ayton: The No. 1 pick will make an immediate fantasy impact in Phoenix, where he should start at center right away.

"As soon as my mom and I made a decision that we were going to stay here and make Arizona our second home, we had to adapt to how American life is", Ayton said.

The Sacramento Kings followed by taking Marvin Bagley III, the Duke big man who played with Ayton at Hillcrest Prep Academy in Phoenix in 2015-16. "I haven't had the exposure in college to really guard big men, or the big men that I guard haven't really touched the ball or really do what they were supposed to do".

The Cleveland Cavaliers used the eighth pick to take Alabama guard Collin Sexton, while the champion Golden State Warriors chose Cincinnati guard Jacob Evans with the 29th pick. But they ended up disappointed as NY went with Kentucky's Kevin Knox.
