Bahamas' Ayton top pick in NBA Draft; Bagley 2nd

After setting a league record with eight NCAA teams, the Southeastern Conference ranked second again with five first-round picks - but only two from Kentucky. Most of the projected lottery picks went in the lottery.

With the No1 pick Suns select Deandre.

The Phoenix Suns announced the team's four 2018 draft picks: Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, Elie Okobo and George King. It was a spendy move because Philadelphia demanded and got Miami's unprotected 2021 first-round pick.

He will instantly bring competitiveness, intensity and most importantly spacing to Phoenix next year, and will give the Suns a viable option down low - something that has been missing since Amare Stoudamire left the franchise. The Dallas Mavericks looked all the way to Slovenia for the player they hope can be their next European superstar. Later, The Dallas Mavericks picked Trae Young but traded him to Atlanta for Luca Doncic and a future first round pick.

USA quits United Nations human rights body, citing bias vs Israel, alarming critics
Among changes the United States had been seeking was to make it easier to kick out member state with egregious rights records. Formed in 2006, the council has been criticised for allowing countries with questionable human rights records to be members.

The Mavericks also gave up a future first-round pick to draft Doncic, who only arrived in NY on Wednesday after helping Spain's Real Madrid win its league championship after he won Euroleague MVP and Final Four MVP honors when they won that title this year.

The Suns, were BAD last season. "We talked to Donovan Mitchell and he told us he got traded, so you have to prepare for that, but I'm excited and I'm happy to be here".

"I think we're an example for them", Okobo said. "They were very nice to me, and I think we had a very good relationship". We will break them down here, starting with the big victor of the entire evening: The Dallas Mavericks, who landed the best player in the draft.

That's probably all I can say at this point regarding him, but we don't take him for granted. Maybe my sports expectations are too high for a Disney-owned company, and maybe the point of the show is to be just that, a show. The top pick was Deandre Ayton, to the shock of nobody.

As a result, Peru dominated the opening 25 minutes, but after weathering the early storm, the Danes started to push forward. Schmeichel's kick save denied Jefferson Farfan's hard-hit, 83rd-minute bid.

The 7-foot-1 Ayton, who didn't start playing basketball until he was 12, averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds per game in his lone college season.

There was no surprise atop the draft, where Ayton will bring a sturdy, 117kg frame to the middle of a Suns defence that ranked last in the National Basketball Association in points allowed en route to the league's worst record during the 2017-18 season.

"Having my name called being the first pick for the Phoenix Suns was mind-blowing", he said.

"As soon as my mom and I made a decision that we were going to stay here and make Arizona our second home, we had to adapt to how American life is", Ayton said.

There was total bias. " Peter Strzok should not have a job anywhere near our Justice Department", said North Carolina Rep. As per Horowitz, although Comey's actions disregarded the department's norms, he was not influenced by political bias.

Besides Ayton and Bagley, other big men to go early included Wendell Carter (Chicago Bulls), Jaren Jackson (Memphis Grizzlies) and Mohamed Bamba (Orlando Magic). Multiple reports had him declining to work out for the team, who ultimately went with Alabama's Collin Sexton with the eighth pick.
