Deandre Ayton after Suns workout: 'I know I'm going No. 1'

Deandre Ayton plans to only work out for the Suns prior to the NBA Draft, where he believes he will be selected as the No. 1 pick, according to Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.

It's not a done deal though, but he's confident. Ayton told reporters afterward that he wouldn't be working out for any other teams.

There are Ay-ton of reasons Ayton should be chosen at the No.1 spot in the upcoming NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns.

Many feel Ayton is a hybrid of both players and because of that, he won't get roped into any traditional National Basketball Association position. "Nobody told me (I'll go first)", Ayton said.

Deandre Ayton spent the morning flashing his skill for the Suns brass and early afternoon flashing his smile for the Suns media.

"Workout was pretty intense".

"That's Shaq and Kobe 2.0", he said. "The fact that he wants to be here, that's great".

Ayton planned to get together with Booker and other Suns players to watch Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night.

Ayton called himself the most competitive player in the draft.
