The Phoenix Suns have never been blessed with the number one overall pick in the NBA Draft. Will that change at the NBA Draft Lottery on May 16th? Probably not. But we’ll watch anyway.
The Suns have the second best odds of landing the top pick. The Brooklyn Nets have the best odds of winning the draft lottery, and if the ping pong balls do in fact fall their way, that pick would likely go to Boston Celtics.
Of course we don’t need to know where teams are picking to slap together mock drafts. Among prognosticators it’s starting to turn into a consensus regarding who the Suns will choose.

Mock drafts change often. These will be outdated by the time I’m through with this sentence. But these were all put together within the last week.
Ok, Suns fans, we’re less than two weeks from being disappointed at the NBA Draft Lottery. When the draft rolls around in June, is Josh Jackson the name you want to hear called?
