On today’s episode, we take a break from the tireless internet debate over Deandre Ayton and Luka Doncic to interpret comments from Ryan McDonough about how the team might attack the 2018 draft.

With picks at 1, 16, 31 and 59, the Suns have an opportunity to move up, take multiple versatile rookies, or stash players overseas. In Chicago this week, the team’s decision-makers are gathering intel that will help them make draft decisions that could define #TheTimeline.

We discuss a great article by azcentral’s Scott Bordow with many quotes from McDonough about the team’s current plan.

We also break down some of the most interesting pieces of news from the combine, including Melvin Frazier’s rise and Trae Young’s fall.
