Phoenix Suns Will Draft 4th in the NBA Draft

The Phoenix Suns landed with the No. 4 overall pick in the NBA Draft following the NBA lottery on Tuesday night. They will also draft 13th overall with the Washington Wizards first round pick that was acquired for Markieff Morris.

The NBA Draft lottery took place on Tuesday night and the Phoenix Suns landed with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. The Suns also traded Markieff Morris for the Washington Wizards first round pick at the trade deadline and that pick landed 13th overall, as the Suns will have two lottery picks this year.

Top draft prospects include Ben Simmons, Brandon Ingram, Kris Dunn, Dragan Bender, and Buddy Hield. Simmons and Ingram will most likely be gone by the time the Suns draft fourth overall, but Hield or Bender would be solid options to add to the Suns rotation.
