So a few days ago, a report came out claiming the Suns would prefer to draft Ja Morant over Zion Williamson with their 2019 lottery pick. Turns out, that was fake news.

According to John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7, the Suns are all-in on Zion.

The story about Morant was believable enough -- they are in need of a dominant top-tier point guard to pair alongside Devin Booker. But to pass on Zion Williamson? That would have been a bold move.

The Suns are in the midst of another coaching search, as they continue their endless rebuild. Their pick in this upcoming draft may be the key to finally ending their streak of losing seasons. If they get lucky and land a top pick in the draft, things could turn around for them. Zion gives them the best and fastest route back to contention, so here is to hoping they don't mess that up.
