Phoenix Suns

This isn’t a ranking.
Frankly, it requires a leap of faith for a franchise that is done little to deserve you. The Phoenix Suns are creeping toward the close of a fourth consecutive season with a sub-.300 winning percent. They have had four different coaches during that stretch and may consider another change after this season. There’s also a troubling tendency of dysfunction within the organization.
However, 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 forced him to develop as a shot-creator, and he has responded with a career-best 6.7 assists per contest. Deandre Ayton, 20, ought to be a first-team All-Rookie lock and also only the third NBA professional to average 16 points and 10 rebounds during the 2000s.
That’s 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 capable of handling complementary roles. With this core still place to rise through the Suns’ very own first-rounders and an incoming selection from the Milwaukee Bucks, the talent base will continue to enlarge.
