Phoenix Suns

This isn’t a position that is confident. Frankly, it needs 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 successive season with a sub-.300 winning percent. They have had four different coaches during that stretch and could consider another change following this season. There is also a troubling tendency of disorder within the business. However, this 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 an explosive scorer (25.1 points per game). Phoenix’s mishandling of the point guard spot also compelled 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 just the third NBA professional to average 16 points and 10 rebounds throughout the 2000s. That’s probably it for possible celebrities, but players like TJ Warren, Josh Jackson, Mikal Bridges and (if he’s re-signed) Kelly Oubre Jr. are all capable of handling complementary roles.
