Washington will be the Wildcats top returning scorer and rebounder next season after averaging 10.8 points and 5.7 rebounds as a freshman.

Tyus Battle to play junior year at Syracuse. Battle average 19.2 points a game last season but considered by most as a second-round pick.

Battles return is huge for the Orange, who finished 23-14 overall and 8-10 in the ACC, but advanced to the NCAA sweet 16 after knocking off Michigan State.

Oakland's Kendrick Nunn one of the top scorers last season has worked out for the Pistons, Suns, Nets, Bulls and Thunder thus far.

Nunn has workouts schedule with the Nuggets, Kings, Mavs and Rockets this week.

Five potential draft steals who could break out in the NBA.

Robert Williams, Texas A&M (C).
A 6-foot-10 guy with a massive catch radius, elite agility and explosive leaping ability.

Wendell Carter Jr., Duke (C).
At 6-foot-10, 251 pounds he has a soft touch and impressive foot work, plus a 7-foot- 4 wingspan.

Miles Bridges, Michigan State (F).
Has the ability to defend both big wings and small-ball forwards.

Kevin Knox, Kentucky (F).
At 6-foot-9. Porter is arguably the most talented combo forward in this draft in terms of sheer ability.

Lonnie Walker IV (G).
One of the most physically guards in the draft.

Deandre Ayton after workout with Suns: 'I know I'm going No.1'.

Ayton through what he said would be his only pre-draft workout and expressed supreme confidence that the Phoenix Suns will use the No.1 overall pick to select him.

I know I'm going No.1
Ayton is a 7-foot-1 250- pound center

The NBA on Friday sent teams a memo indicating that "eligibility rules" for the draft may shift as early as 2021(but not earlier) as the league review issues "related to player development and the corruption investigation in college basketball".

The memo does not mention the one-and-done rule by name. The league and the players union could agree to scrap one-and-done before the expiration of the current collective bargaining in 2024.

Drafting a top-5 center? Riskier than ever before. Arizona's Deandre Ayton, expected to be taken No.1 overall by the Phoenix Suns, many of this year's top prospect are centers.

Three NBA draft trades I would like to see:

The L.A. Clippers move up:
The Clippers get: Chandler Parsons, the No.4 and No.32 pick

Memphis get: Danilo Gallimari, No.12 and No.13 pick

L.A.Lakers clears max
Orlando Magic get: No.25 pick

L.A.Lakers get: No.35, No.41 pick and Brooklyn's 2019 second-round pick.

Phoenix Suns go 1-2
Sacramento gets: Devin Booker and Jarred Dudley

Suns get: Bogdan Bogdanovic, No
2 pick.

Slovenia teen star Luka Doncic has elevated to the forefront of the Atlanta Hawks internal discussions on the third overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft.

Doncic's 3rd overall pick reflects a league wide belief that Deandre Ayton and Marvin Bagley III could go 1-2 to Phoenix and Sacramento.

The Hawks have three picks in the first round--No.3, 19 and 30.

Kevin Knox miffed by teams line of questioning at NBA combine

Knox told reporters that a team asked him whether he had a child, then asked for the child's name.

Knox is a 6-foot9 combo forward and is expected to be selected in the lottery during Thursday night NBA draft.
 
#15
The Phoenix Suns select Deandre Ayton of Arizona at No.1 overall pick

Ayton is a 7'0" 261 lbs center. The Suns have secured their center of the future and he is physically ready to step in right away.

The Phoenix Suns also selected Zhaire Smith a 6'5" 199 lbs small forward from Texas Tech with the No.16 overall pick in round 1.

The Miami Heat did not make a pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, primarily because of the terms of a trade that sent Goran Dragic to them in 2015.

It's the second time in the last three years that Miami did not make a selection in the draft. Miami was also without a pick to make in 2013.
