Phoenix Suns

This isn’t a position.
Frankly, it needs a leap of faith for a franchise that’s done little to deserve you. The Phoenix Suns are creeping toward the end of a fourth successive season with a sub-.300 winning percent. They have had four distinct coaches during that stretch and may consider another change after this season. There is also a troubling trend of disorder within the organization.
But this really is a players’ league, and the Suns have a few of the best up-and-comers in the business.
Devin Booker is 22 years old and 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 has responded with a career-best 6.7 assists per contest. Deandre Ayton, 20, should be a first-team All-Rookie lock and only the third NBA professional to average 16 points and 10 rebounds throughout the 2000s.
That is probably it for possible celebrities, but players such as TJ Warren, Josh Jackson, Mikal Bridges and (if he is re-signed) Kelly Oubre Jr. are all capable of handling complementary roles. And with this core still set to rise through the Suns’ own first-rounders and an incoming pick from the Milwaukee Bucks, the talent base will continue to expand.
