2018 NBA Draft Order: Suns Take DeAndre Ayton 1st Overall, Michael Porter Jr. Falls, And Complete Picks For Rounds 1 And 2
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

With the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft for the first time in franchise history, the Phoenix Suns selected DeAndre Ayton from the University of Arizona. That led to the Sacramento Kings drafting Duke’s Marvin Bagley III before the night’s first trade.

The Atlanta Hawks selected international prospect Luka Doncic but for the Dallas Mavericks, who drafted Trae Young at fifth to complete the trade. Atlanta also received a future first-round draft pick as part of the trade.

The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly were intrigued by Doncic but aren’t believed to have seriously considered parting with the assets necessary to trade up in the Draft.

One of the more prominent stories was Michael Porter Jr. falling in the draft because of injury concerns. Once considered a top-five pick, he wasn’t taken off the board until the Denver Nuggets at No. 14.

The Lakers wound up selecting Moritz Wagner in the first round, Isaac Bonga in the second (39th pick), and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk also in the second round (47th). Bonga will likely remain overseas.
