This isn’t a particularly confident position.
Frankly, it needs a leap of faith to get a franchise that is done little to deserve one. The Phoenix Suns are creeping toward the end of a fourth successive season with a sub-.300 winning percent. They’ve had four different coaches during that stretch and could consider another change after this season. There’s also a troubling trend of disorder within the business.
However, this really 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, ought to be a first-team All-Rookie lock and just the third NBA freshman to ordinary 16 points and 10 rebounds throughout the 2000s.
