Leveraging the 2018 NBA Draft

Yet in today's National Basketball Association game, teams are yearning for big men who can be a threat in all areas of the court offensively.

"We don't have a position in mind that we're looking to improve on", Finely said.

Kokoskov was the coach that led Slovenia to the European championship last summer where the 19-year-old played a huge role in their triumph.

Barring a trade of enormous proportions, Phoenix will choose first for the first time in its history, and it will be interesting to see who they pick in what is considered to be a top-heavy draft class.

"Deandre is probably going to Phoenix", said Sacramento point guard De'Aaron Fox.

Luka Doncic (+200) - 6'6, 219 - Luka Doncic is more mature and comes with a lot more polish.

According to Alex Madrid of EuroHoops.net, while speaking with reporters at the EuroLeague Final Four press conference, Doncic hinted that he might stay in Europe instead of getting drafted by the Phoenix Suns or Sacramento Kings, who have the #1 and #2 picks.

Atlanta Hawks were awarded the 3rd pick, the Grizzlies have No.4 and the Mavericks were awarded the 5th pick.

The lottery has been around since 1985, was tweaked to a weighted system in 1990 and will be changing again next year in an effort to discourage teams from tanking.

Duke's Marvin Bagley III, Texas' Mohamed Bamba and Michigan State's Jaren Jackson Jr. are big men that could be off the board by the time Orlando is on the draft clock.

"He's got so much potential", Jackson said.

The Suns feel the same way about themselves. We want more opportunities to be open and we want to give kids more opportunities so they don't have to go outside of the country to help be what they want to be.

The Enes Kanter trade which sent out a first round pick to Utah will finally be used. But even with every different answer you come across, the overwhelming opinion is that Luka Doncic is either the best, second-best or third-best prospect that is expected to be in this year's NBA Draft class.
