This is not a particularly confident 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 end of a fourth consecutive season with a sub-.300 winning percentage. They have had four distinct coaches during that stretch and may consider another change after this season. There is also a troubling tendency of disorder within the organization.
However, this is a players’ league, and the Suns have a few of the greatest up-and-comers in the company.
Devin Booker is 22 years old and an explosive scorer (25.1 points per game). Phoenix’s mishandling of the point guard spot also forced him to grow as a shot-creator, and he’s responded with a career-best 6.7 assists per contest. Deandre Ayton, 20, should be a first-team All-Rookie lock and also just the third NBA freshman to average 16 points and 10 rebounds during the 2000s.
That is probably it for possible stars, 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. With this core still place to grow through the Suns’ own first-rounders and an incoming pick from the Milwaukee Bucks, the ability base will continue to expand.
