NBA Draft: Suns reportedly favor Morant over Zion

Murray State point guard Ja Morant is reportedly high on the Suns' wish list -- perhaps higher than anyone.

Zion Williamson of Duke has been the consensus projected No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft since before Christmas.

The great Jerry West, appearing on the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday morning, said any team opting to pass on selecting Williamson with the first overall pick come June would be, well, wrong.

The Phoenix Suns are one of three teams with a 14-percent chance at selecting No. 1 overall, the others being the New York Knicks and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Our own Sam Amico has Williamson and Murray going one-three in his most recent mock draft, with Williamson’s Blue Devils teammate, R.J. Barrett, in between at No. 2.

However, as part of a report by Sam Vecenie of The Athletic, he writes versatile Murray State point guard Ja Morant — not Williamson — is the player the Suns actually covet.

  1. Morant makes far more sense to the Suns than Zion does. They desperately need a PG to play next to Booker.
