Suns C Deandre Ayton in awe of Luka Doncic's skill: 'He's a beast'

Deandre Ayton is sometimes in disbelief that 19-year-old Mavericks guard Luka Doncic is a rookie.

He says he's watched plenty of Doncic, who was taken with the third-overall pick in 2018, and he's very impressed.

Doncic appears to be running away with the Rookie of the Year race, averaging 19.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 4.9 assists so far this season.

Ayton is posting solid numbers himself, but isn't receiving nearly as much praise as his Slovenian counterpart.

Ayton is averaging 16.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists for a 10-32 Suns team sitting last in the Western Conference.

Phoenix has a bevy of talented young players, but it has some developing to do.
