This is not a position.
Frankly, it requires a leap of faith to get a franchise that’s done little to deserve you. The Phoenix Suns are creeping toward the close of a fourth successive season with a sub-.300 winning percentage. They have had four distinct coaches during that stretch and could consider another change after this season. There’s also a troubling tendency of disorder within the organization.
However, this is a players’ league, and the Suns have some of the greatest up-and-comers in the company.
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 compelled him to grow 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 just the third NBA professional to average 16 points and 10 rebounds throughout the 2000s.
That’s probably it for potential stars, but players such as TJ Warren, Josh Jackson, Mikal Bridges and (if he’s re-signed) Kelly Oubre Jr. are all capable of handling complementary roles. And with this core still place to rise through the Suns’ own first-rounders and an incoming pick from the Milwaukee Bucks, the talent base will continue to expand.
