Deandre Ayton Shuts Down Workouts After Suns Meeting: 'I Know I'm Going No. 1'

When the Suns won the National Basketball Association draft lottery to secure the No. 1 overall pick in this month's draft, there was plenty of speculation around what direction Phoenix would go.

It's not a done deal though, but he's confident. Nothing to take away from the other lottery picks, but Ayton is on another level and Suns fans know it.

GM Ryan McDonough has been scouting Ayton in person and on film since his days at Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, but Wednesday's up-close and personal experience gave McDonough added appreciation for the tantalizing skillset Ayton possesses. There are many positions in which the suns could use some help.

"I know I'm going Number 1", Ayton said after his workout with the Suns, according to Arizona Sports. Yes, I said backcourt.

By contrast, this was England's biggest victory in the format, topping their 210-run win against New Zealand at Edgbaston in 2015. Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan became England's top-run scorer in ODI cricket (5443 runs), who went past Ian Bell's tally of 5416 runs.

Ayton is considered a consensus top overall pick by every reputable scouting service in the projection business.

"The workout was pretty intense, I learned a lot". He's been working out here, he's been training here.

Ayton touted his competitiveness and talked up he and Devin Booker as a potential "Shaq and Kobe 2.0". "The fact that he wants to be here, that's great".

The former Arizona Wildcats center actually expressed his certainty that the Phoenix Suns, that own the No. 1 pick, will land him in the Draft. I play my heart out on both ends of the floor, and I give it my all.

So where does a superstar like James would fit in as an off-the-ball player? He's been quiet, but there's no doubt he's watching. CLEVELAND- LeBron James can opt out of the past year of his contract with the Cavaliers and leave Cleveland for a second time.

Ayton planned to get together with Booker and other Suns players to watch Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night.

Ayton averaged 20.1 points, 11.6 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game for Arizona last season, his only season at the school.

Ayton likens himself to Kevin Garnett and Hakeem Olajuwon and he's not alone when it comes to comparisons to two Hall of Fame players.
