The rumor the Suns might draft Ja Morant over Zion Williamson with the No. 1 pick? It was never that believable.
Now comes concrete reporting to the contrary.
John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7:
Some reports yesterday that the Suns would prefer Ja Morant over Zion Williamson are totally off base. If the Suns did get the #1 pick it would be Zion. If they get #2 it's Ja and if a team like Atlanta gets #2 they may try and trade with them to get Ja because that team has a PG— John Gambadoro (@Gambo987) April 23, 2019
The Suns need a point guard and clearly like Morant. But Williamson is the far-superior prospect. That’s the good reason to take Williamson. There are even bad reasons, too – like Williamson’s marketability.
