What if the Suns chose Ayton and Luka Doncic in the same Draft?

The Phoenix Suns were the first team to follow in this NBA Draft in 2018 and more since it became known that they would be the first franchise to choose after winning number one.
DeAndre Ayton, a center who played at a Phoenix institute and the University of Arizona, seemed predestined to be a new Suns player given his youth (19 years), physical abilities (2.16 meters tall and 2.27 in span) ) and previous performance (more than 20 points and 10 rebounds per game in the NCAA).
However, the arrival of Igor Kokoskov to the bench of the Suns created doubts since the Serbian coach directed Luka Doncic to the gold of the Eurobasket of 2017 with the Real Madrid being one of the outstanding pieces of the Slovenia national team.

The debate between Ayton and Doncic was installed in Phoenix and although everything points to the chosen will be the Bahamian center, could you choose the two ?.
Ryan McDonough, general manager of the Suns, said the franchise does not rule out the option of getting another selection of the Draft through a transfer. For this they would offer their ‘pick’ number 16 and other assets. Depending on what those other assets are, they could get a higher or lower election.Seeing the template of the Suns, unless they offer a value of the type Josh Jackson, unlikely thing, it does not seem that they have many chances to reach an agreement.
For its part, the Toronto Raptors are also pending to get some selection, since this year they have none. According to Marc Stein, of the New York Times, they aspire to get a Top 10 and could involve any player of their team in a transfer.

In the Canadian franchise they are obsessed with getting Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, a Toronto-born base, who averaged 14.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.6 steals per game in the NCAA with the University of Kentucky. Its 1.98 meters in height and 2.11 meters in span make it have influence in all aspects of the game.
