McDonough said he’ll likely be heading to Spain in the coming weeks to interview and watch Doncic play. “I was hoping it was unanimous. That would make my job easier,” McDonough joked when he heard Jackson’s pick. “I guess we got a decision to make.”

It’s been suggested that having Kokoskov on board means the Suns will bypass Arizona center Deandre Ayton if they get the No. 1 pick and take Doncic instead. That makes some sense in that Kokoskov knows Doncic, and Doncic would be a perfect fit alongside Booker for the wide-open offense Kokoskov wants to run. McDonough, however, said that’s not necessarily the case.
“It’s an easy assumption to make, but we’re going to draft whoever we think the best player is,” McDonough said. “If we do get the Number 1 pick, Doncic will certainly be in that mix. But Ayton and a few other guys will, as well.”

Adam Johnson: After being waived by the Bulls earlier this week, Antonius Cleveland has signed a G League contract according to a league source. His rights are with the Santa Cruz Warriors. A nice addition after losing Tyler Ulis to a two-way to the same Bulls.
The Detroit Pistons used their opening night at Little Caesars Arena to pay a final tribute to a fallen legend. Before the player introductions for Wednesday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, public address announcer John Mason introduced Pistons legend Isiah Thomas. The Basketball Hall of Famer stood by a microphone and read a statement about Aretha Franklin, the legendary singer from metro Detroit who died this summer.
“The Detroit Pistons family and I were deeply saddened by the recent passing of a true Detroit icon. The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, was a shining symbol of this great city. She represented us all with dignity, style, grace and beauty,” Thomas said. After Thomas was finished, all but one spotlight shone on center court, with one microphone and stand. Then, a recording of Franklin’s national anthem played at LCA as the Fox Sports Detroit telecast showed a video montage.
