5 Options the Suns Have With No. 1 Pick in NBA Draft

2. Draft Deandre Ayton

Deandre Ayton has been mentioned a ton in reports and rumors as a player the Suns could draft at No. 1. As of right now, it looks like it’s either him or Doncic with the first overall pick come June.

The Suns are in need of a big man for the future. Alex Len, the fifth overall pick from the 2013 draft, never panned out to be the team’s franchise center. Ayton could end up being a franchise-changing player if he’s drafted.

Ayton had averages of about 20 points and 12 rebounds per game for the Arizona Wildcats this past season. However, a big knock against his game has been his defense. Some say it’s due to Arizona’s defensive scheme and style of play.

Nonetheless, Ayton has tools and size (7-foot-1, 250 pounds) to become at least a decent defender. Phoenix is going to need it, because their defense was atrocious this year.

Could we see Ayton staying home in AZ?
