6 Potential NBA Draft Day Steals (2018)

By Eli Yankelevich

  • 6. Arnoldas Kulbolka, Orlandina Basket
    • This Lithuanian forward has fallen on many draft boards because of the competition he plays with over seas in the Italian circuit not being up to par with other leagues.

The Suns drastically need to change up their culture and adding someone like an Ayton can alter the prior misfortunes of the franchise. The one knock on Ayton’s game is his defensive intensity but there is nothing standing in his way in becoming a capable rim protecter since he has a 7’0 wingspan.

DeAndre Ayton

The 7’1″ Bahamian monster has arguably the best NBA body. Size and strength present, Ayton looks stronger than some current NBA centers. Averaging a double double at 19.9 PPG and 11.6 RPG, the Arizona big man is quite possibly the top prospect (as long as he can wait until the Pros to get his 100k). Read Full Article Here!
