Phoenix Suns

This is not a position.
Frankly, it needs a leap of faith for a franchise that is done little to deserve one. The Phoenix Suns are creeping toward the close of a fourth consecutive season with a sub-.300 winning percentage. They’ve had four distinct coaches during that stretch and may consider another change following this season. There is also a troubling trend of dysfunction within the business.
But this really is a players’ league, and the Suns have a few of the greatest up-and-comers in the business.
Devin Booker is 22 years old and already an explosive scorer (25.1 points per game). Phoenix’s mishandling of the point guard spot also compelled him to develop as a shot-creator, and he’s responded with a career-best 6.7 assists per contest. Deandre Ayton, 20, ought to be a first-team All-Rookie lock and also just the third NBA professional to average 16 points and 10 rebounds during the 2000s.
That’s probably it for potential celebrities, but players such as TJ Warren, Josh Jackson, Mikal Bridges and (if he is re-signed) Kelly Oubre Jr. are capable of handling complementary roles. And with this core still set to grow through the Suns’ very own first-rounders and an incoming selection from the Milwaukee Bucks, the ability base will continue to enlarge.
