NBA Draft 2018: The 5 Best Players Who Went Undrafted

Adjust Comment Print

Duke matched a program record with four picks in the NBA Draft, tying the mark set in 1986 and tied again in 1999 and 2017.

Now one of the most talked about players in the league is newly minted Phoenix Suns player Deandre Ayton who was selected first overall in this year's NBA Draft.

BOISE, ID - MARCH 15: Deandre Ayton #13 of the Arizona Wildcats dunks the ball in the first half against the Buffalo Bulls during the first round of the 2018 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at Taco Bell Arena on March 15, 2018 in Boise, Idaho. It's insane, I just didn't know.

Joel Embiid appeared to be offended by comparisons to Deandre Ayton, the No. 1 pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft.

This is not the first time the Hawks have quickly traded the number three overall pick.

The Suns, were BAD last season.

I know what you're thinking: they do this every year. "They were very nice to me, and I think we had a very good relationship".

NBA teams employ numerous front office executives, scouts and coaches equipped with the knowledge, money and information needed to make multi-million dollar decisions about young basketball players.

"I think if you don't [rebuild] for that amount of time, it's hard to accumulate enough young talent to build and grow for a sustainable period of time", he said during ESPN2's draft combine special. I represent a whole nation (Bahamas) I just do that the best that I can and just help this community start over and be the best player I can possibly be.

Aside from fixable defensive woes, there really isn't much left to say about his skill and school lineage.

According to the Washington Post , the United States could have stayed on the Council as a nonvoting observer. Clark says the United States, a proponent of reform, can't achieve it from the outside looking in.

The 2018 NBA Draft has a chance for a lot of chaos, but the Suns made sure to keep it simple at the very top.

In his only season at Duke University, the 19-year-old Consensus First-Team All-American averaged 21 points and 11.1 rebounds at an astounding 61% shooting clip with a 40% three-point norm to boot.

A last-minute trade had Phoenix draft Texas Tech guard Zhaire Smith at No. 16, sending him to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Villanova swingman Mikal Bridges, their 10th overall pick.

Although, it has been reported that the Suns taking Ayton and the Kings taking Bagley are locked in at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively.

Marvin Bagley III, a 6ft 11in centre, was selected second by Sacramento Kings. If the Boston Celtics can tap into any of Williams' potential as a rim-running, athletic big man, they may have found a gem to pair with their shifty point guards at No. 27.

Then it was another guard with Alabama's Collin Sexton going at No. 8 to Cleveland, triggering chants of Michael Porter Jr.'s name by Knicks fans who hoped they would take him with the No. 9 pick.

Even on National Basketball Association draft night, some people in Philadelphia are already thinking about free agency and the pursuit of LeBron James. Basically, they didn't want Woj and others tweeting "The Orlando Magic are drafting Mo Bamba at No. 6..." a minute before the selection is announced live on television.

"But they got Kevin Knox, and I'm willing to work and I'm willing to get better".

If Porter Jr.is a "loser" for slipping to No. 14, then we can simultaneously consider the Denver Nuggets winners. Sports' Shams Charania, among others, have been breaking picks.
