Evaluating Cheick Diallo, the Phoenix Suns’ newest signee

Cheick Diallo, the Phoenix Suns’ newest 6’9″ power forward and three-year NBA vet, picked up a basketball for the first time in his life ten years ago. That’s it. Ten. Most of my t-shirts are older than that. The then 13-year-old kid in Mali (for the geographically challenged, that’s a country in West Africa), Cheick […] Evaluating Cheick Diallo, the Phoenix Suns’ newest signee - Valley of the Suns - Valley of the Suns - A Phoenix Suns Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Center of the Sun: Better roster construction should put the Suns back on the right path

Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports How many win would signal acceptable progress this season? The Fantable gives their opinions on this and other questions. Welcome to the weekly news roundup of your Phoenix Suns. We’re all wondering how much better the 2019-20 Suns will be than the 2018-19 Suns. Are all the new additions going to make a significant difference? So far, it all looks good on paper but paper doesn’t play the game and sometimes better individual players don’t add up to a better team. Good roster construction can sometimes make the team better than the sum of it’s...

Early indications of the role SVP Jeff Bower will play in the Phoenix Suns’ front office

Photo by Allen Einstein/NBAE via How the Suns’ newest basketball executive fits into this front office, with insight from people around the team. In my first full summer covering the Suns — from the draft to free agency to Summer League — I tried to have as many conversations as possible to understand the way this new braintrust in Phoenix thinks. Along the way, I captured some thoughts and quotes from those around the organization that haven’t made it in any of the other pieces I’ve written this summer. So, before we part ways for the remainder of the offseason (training camp...

Top candidates for “he just needs minutes!” from Suns fans next season

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports Are Jalen Lecque and Cheick Diallo the next recipients for irrational love from the fans? In recent years, the Phoenix Suns have gifted minutes to so many under-developed prospects that fans had no one left to give the “all he needs is minutes to become a star” crown. What the franchise proved in this mad scientific experiment was that, no, players don’t just need opportunity to prove how great they are. They need that opportunity to come in a supportive, already-successful environment that minimizes their weaknesses while allowing them to showcase their...

Deandre Ayton has every reason to dominate next season for the Phoenix Suns

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports Ayton finally has his point guard in Ricky Rubio. Last year, the Phoenix Suns picked University of Arizona Center Deandre Ayton with the first overall pick in a stacked 2018 draft. Though he didn’t win the Rookie of the Year award, Ayton had himself an extremely solid season, averaging a double-double over the season (16.3 points per game with 10.3 rebounds per game). Now, with all the changes made to the coaching staff and roster, Ayton is set up to have a tremendous sophomore season. Last season the Suns played most of the season without a high quality...
