Phoenix select Ayton first in NBA Draft, Dallas get Doncic at third

Share

The Big Ten matched its four NCAA teams with four first-round draft picks.

What the Atlanta Hawks were able to pull off, with three quality first-round picks, constitutes a win.

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.

"I'm just happy to be with a team that believes in me". The Dallas Mavericks looked all the way to Slovenia for the player they hope can be their next European superstar.

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. Altman also said owner Dan Gilbert is set to "spare no expense" building a championship team after the Cavaliers were swept by the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Alzheimer's 'may be caused by a virus'
In these samples, the scientists saw a persistent increase in human herpes viruses 6A and 7 in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. Like other herpes viruses, HHV moves to nerve cells, especially to a part of the brain called the hippocampus, Gandy said.

"I've been talking to Dallas a lot". The 19-year-old Doncic has already bagged the EuroLeague Most Valuable Player plum and the EuroLeague Final Four MVP. Bridges shot almost 44% in his junior year of college basketball - a figure that you could see translating into the NBA in the future. A native of Philadelphia, Bridges starred at Great Valley High School in Malvern, Pennsylvania. The Suns then drafted Elie Okobo, a quick and scoring-minded point guard from Bordeaux, France and rounded out their draft by selecting George King, a lengthy guard out of Colorado.

This marks the first time Arizona has had a player selected No. 1 overall. The Phoenix Suns introduced Deandre Ayton in front of local and national media for the first time in a press conference Friday. Evidently Porter's medical history scared off enough teams to where he had to sit and watch each lottery pick go by without hearing his name called.

Marvin Bagley III, a 6ft 11in centre, was selected second by Sacramento Kings.

The NBA has evolved from a league dominated by big men who could score on the inside to one where perimeter players now reign supreme with their shooting from the outside. But they ended up disappointed as NY went with Kentucky's Kevin Knox.

"It's like I've known him my whole life", Bridges said. They now boast a tall frontline of Jokic, Paul Millsap and Porter, who prefers to play small forward even at 6-foot-11.

Phillie Phanatic's hot dog launch injures fan
A Philadelphia Phillies fan has been hospitalized after being hit in the face - not with a foul ball, but a flying hot dog. Louis Cardinals would become extremely unsafe for a fan in the stands and she would be sent to the hospital as a result.

"(I grew) up around that brand, I'm used to that brand", Ayton said.

Wendell Carter Jr. was taken No. 7 overall by the Chicago Bulls and that added to the total of Coach K and the Duke Basketball program, as Carter Jr. became the twenty-fifth NBA Lottery choice for the school and coach. Sports' Shams Charania, among others, have been breaking picks. Bridges' mom is the VP of human resources for the 76ers, and she was beaming in the post-pick interview broadcast before he was traded to Phoenix.

"We were thinking this has to be the first time in history that one actual player under contract hasn't gotten traded", Raptors general manager Bobby Webster told reporters back in Toronto.

Australia has enjoyed plenty of success at the annual draft in recent years, with Ben Simmons, Dante Exum, Thon Maker and Jonah Bolden all snapped up.

China says will 'fight back firmly' if U.S. publishes additional tariffs
Anglo-Swiss multinational Glencore is down 2.6 percent, while British technology firm Micro Focus also shed almost three percent. That would leave about $120 billion of imports available for retaliatory tariffs after Saturday's announcement.
