Phoenix Suns

This isn’t a confident ranking.
Frankly, it requires a leap of faith for a franchise that is done little to deserve one. The Phoenix Suns are creeping toward the close of a fourth successive season with a sub-.300 winning percentage. They’ve had four distinct coaches during that stretch and could consider another change following this season. There is 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 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 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 also only the third NBA professional to ordinary 16 points and 10 rebounds during 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 capable of handling complementary roles. And with this core still set to rise through the Suns’ own first-rounders and an incoming pick from the Milwaukee Bucks, the talent base will continue to expand.
