Will Suns finally land No. 1 draft pick?

It would be a first. When Phoenix's expansion team finished a league-worst 16-66 in 1968-69, the franchise lost the coin flip with fellow newcomer Milwaukee (27-55). With that went the opportunity to pick Lew Alcindor, who became Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. (ESPN/WatchESPN, 8 p.m. ET) Play the NBA draft lottery
