Prospect watch: Finding the Phoenix Suns’ small forward of the future

Prospect watch: Finding the Phoenix Suns’ small forward of the future

Baring a draft lottery win, one of these three prospects could be wearing purple and orange next season. For all of the noise surrounding the two headlining guards in this year’s draft class, there is heavy chance that the Suns are going to target a swingman with their pick. For one, drafting one of the point guards would require some roster gymnastics from GM Ryan McDonough, and although he is prone to shuffling the puzzle pieces every summer, something tells me that he is going to try to keep the Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker backcourt in tact. Secondly, these swingmen have the chance...

Devin Booker planning to set example for group summer workouts

Devin Booker planning to set example for group summer workouts

Last summer, it was rookie head coach Earl Watson and veteran Eric Bledsoe who led the charge for team get-togethers and workouts throughout the summer. The team-building efforts, which included collecting in various players’ cities, beach yoga, pickup ball, weight-lifting, and more, served to keep the core of returning players together and on each other’s sides throughout the long, difficult season in which they lost 58 of 82 games. This summer, young Devin Booker, still just 20 years old, plans to take more of a leadership role in getting guys to work together all summer rather than...

Will Devin Booker, Eric Bledsoe carry Suns to playoffs?

The Suns’ future push into playoff contention won’t come easily. Of this year’s eight Western Conference playoff teams, seven made it last season. As General Manager Ryan McDonough put it, crashing the parting will be a “daunting” task.

Phoenix Suns get royally flushed by the Sacramento Kings, 129-104

Phoenix Suns get royally flushed by the Sacramento Kings, 129-104

OK, we’re done here. On to the lottery. It is done. It is over. The tank is going into the shop for at least 6 months. The Phoenix Suns held out six players (Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, Brandon Knight, Tyson Chandler, Leandro Barbosa, Jared Dudley). The other nine guys may as well have taken the night off too. Sure, they got within 11 points in the fourth quarter, but that lasted all of a minute. The next thing you knew, Ty Lawson (TY LAWSON!) had a triple-double, the lead was back up to 20, and the Suns’ 58th loss was in the books. This time by a score of 129-104. The best thing...

Home Finale Recap: Phoenix Suns Youth Movement Is Shining Bright

Home Finale Recap: Phoenix Suns Youth Movement Is Shining Bright

Last night, The Phoenix Suns won their second consecutive game, after losing 13 games straight before that. The Suns have been indefinitely resting their veteran players, Eric Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler, and Brandon Knight so that the young guys can play, while the organization has shifted its philosophy from “win now”, to “win later”. This has allowed Tyler Ulis invaluable minutes as a starting point guard, in which he has already developed into a more than solid option. Not only that, but Alan Williams has taken his opportunity by replacing Chandler, to show just how productive he...

The Madhouse: Week of 4/3/2017

ONLY FOUR MORE GAMES LEFT. Good Monday, everyone! I hope spring has sprung in your neck of the woods (if you’re in the northern hemisphere, that is). As of this writing we’ve got four more games of hot tanking action before we can get about the serious business of drafting the Suns’ next star. Assuming Phoenix stays in the top 3 (by the way... eat our tanking dust, Lakers!), we’re looking at our pick of Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson or Jayson Tatum. Who’s your man and why? And if you like Fultz or Ball, what does that mean for Eric Bledsoe? Also: Wrestlemania was...
Aftermath: Tyler Ulis is the silver lining in another Suns loss

Aftermath: Tyler Ulis is the silver lining in another Suns loss

The Phoenix Suns were not ready to win the game against the Houston Rockets and break their 11-game losing streak, but it wasn’t Tyler Ulis’ fault. Ulis scored a career high 34 points and grabbed a career high 9 rebounds while dishing 9 assists in the Suns loss. “I knew Tyler was pretty special quickly,” coach Earl Watson said. “At his size and as a rookie point guard, that’s great numbers.” Ulis is just 5’9” and weighs maybe 150 pounds. Since Eric Bledsoe was sat down for the season, Ulis has been playing 40+ minutes per game and doing quite well in a large role. Since...

An ode to Eric Bledsoe - Should he be the PG of the present AND future?

An ode to Eric Bledsoe - Should he be the PG of the present AND future?

The Phoenix Suns pulled Eric Bledsoe from the lineup two weeks ago and have not won a game since. As the Suns hurtle toward potentially their highest draft pick since 1987 (hello, Armen!), they also must face the biggest decision of GM Ryan McDonough’s career. Is Eric Bledsoe the point guard of not only the present but also the future? That might depend on where the Suns finish after the lottery balls bounce. And to be sure, the Suns are angling hard for the highest pick possible. Bledsoe, along with Tyson Chandler and Brandon Knight, are taking the remainder of the season off at the...
