The highest 2018 NBA Draft picks played against each other

On Monday the Phoenix Suns played with the Sacramento Kings in preseason opener. The biggest intrigue of the game was Ayton and Bagley’s collision.

A 20-year-old center Deandre Ayton and a No. 1 pick made a debut for the Phoenix Suns team. Despite the fact that the Suns loss to the Sacramento Kings (102:106) Ayton himself had a successful game – playing in the Suns starting lineup he scored 24 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist and 3 blocks during 30 minutes on the floor.

Meanwhile a 19-year-old the Kings rookie and a No. 2 pick Marvin Bagley III also played in the starting lineup, but had quite a humble game – he scored 7 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks while playing 25 minutes.

Deandre Ayton and Marvin Bagley III once were teammates in high school.
