Locked On Suns Friday: What if the Suns drafted Luka Doncic over Deandre Ayton at No. 1 in the 2018 draft?

New, comments

We dive deep into this scenario, which would have paired Devin Booker and Luka Doncic in the Valley.

What happens if the Suns drafted Luka Doncic at No. 1 overall? How different is Phoenix in 2020 where Doncic has ascended to MVP contender?

Ayton has fared well for himself, but the adjustment for bigs in today’s NBA is more steeper than primary ball handlers. Would the fit with Booker and Doncic not be as smooth?

Also, Igor Kokoskov likely stays on as head coach with Doncic on the roster. Would Kokoskov’s scheme have actually worked with two great playmakers on the roster?
