NBA Draft Lottery: Knicks To Pick 9th

The odds were in the Suns' favor as they went into the draft lottery with a 25 percent chance at getting the top pick.

With two picks in the first round (also have No. 26), it will be interesting to see the approach Philadelphia takes next month once the draft officially gets underway. They also have a 64.2 percent chance of receiving a top-3 pick and can not slide any further than fourth.

Gertz's husband Antony Ressler said earlier this week that she's been responsible for his luck throughout the years... that certainly rang true tonight.

Jones thinks the Suns do, too.

It will come down to Deandre Ayton or Luka Doncic for the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns feel the same way about themselves. What they do with the pick now, however, is a whole different conversation. In addition to the No. 1 overall pick, the Suns possess the No. 16 (via Miami), No. 31 and No. 59 (via Toronto) selections.
