Suns GM 'certainly open' to dealing No. 1 pick

Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough says he hasn't ruled out the option of dealing away the No. 1 pick in June's draft for a lower pick -- or even a worthy veteran player.

Top prospect Doncic shines in Euroleague semi

Top NBA draft prospect Luka Doncic played a team-high 30 minutes and finished with 16 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists in Real Madrid's 92-83 win in the Euroleague Final Four.

Wild night here in Chicago with Sacramento jumping to #2 and Phoenix landing the 1st overall pick. Who Sacramento takes 2nd overall could play a big role in shaping the rest of the top-5. If Phoenix does opt for Ayton at #1, I think Doncic could fit with speedy point guard De'Aaron Fox. He's at his best as a playmaker but can also play off the ball and needs an explosive shot creator next to him. Will be interesting to see how this next month plays out.

Suns land No. 1 overall pick; Kings, Hawks next

After winning just 21 games this season, the Suns got their biggest win of the year Tuesday, grabbing the No. 1 overall pick in June's NBA draft.

The Phoenix Suns were big winners of Tuesday's NBA Draft Lottery, landing the No. 1 overall pick. The Suns will have their choice of center Deandre Ayton, who played at the nearby University of Arizona, and Slovenian star Luka Doncic -- who played for new Phoenix coach Igor Kokoskov while winning last summer's EuroBasket. The Sacramento Kings landed the second pick with the Atlanta Hawks picking third. The Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks, who entered the lottery with the second- and third-best odds, respectively, dropped to fourth and fifth.

No vault from the 2018 Lakers' pick at the draft lottery, so the Celtics will turn their attention to the 2019 Kings pick. Boston gets Sacramento's selection as long as it's not No. 1 overall (otherwise, they get the 76ers pick).

The Kings have promoted Peja Stojakovic to assistant general manager. The former Kings star's role will now focus on player development, overseeing the G-League Stockton Kings and assisting with talent evaluation. The rest of the Kings' front office remains the same.

Bobby Marks ESPN 

As a result of the set-off in the waived contracts of Anthony Tolliver and Arron Afflalo, Sacramento carved out an additional $2M in cap space. The Kings now have $5.4M in room to use up until June 30. The new cap year will start on July 1.
