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. Think of what the Phoenix Suns will look like next year with DeAndre Ayton, Devin Booker, and Josh Jackson running up and down the court.
"I know I'm going No. 1", Ayton told reporters Wednesday.
That said, all signs point to the Arizona center making a short move up the road from Tucson and nothing about his official workout with the Suns on Wednesday would suggest that won't be the case.

Ayton, 19, will have a private workout for the team as they decide who to pick with the first selection next month. Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough has stated that he didn't know who was going first, he has worked out numerous top players in the draft, and he hired the head coach of the Slovenian national team, Igor Kokoskov, who is Doncic's head coach, and who said nothing but glowing things about his star guard. "I will say on the competitive level, I'm the best competitor".
"It's great [that he wants to be here]", general manager Ryan McDonough said after the workout, which he called "phenomenal".
Ayton grew up in the Bahamas before attending high school in Phoenix and is hopeful to stay near his family in the Arizona area.
