Phoenix Suns accelerate rebuilding process with 2016 draft

PHOENIX (AP) Marquese Chriss wanted to play in Phoenix but figured his chance had passed when the Suns used the No. 4 overall pick of the NBA draft on Dragan Bender.

Chriss' agent told him the next few teams would likely be taking guards, so the athletic forward turned his focus toward Sacramento. He grew up just north of the California capitol in Pleasant Grove, so his sister was ecstatic when the Kings took him with the No. 8 overall pick.

Hold on, Chriss told his sister, you never know what might happen.
