Should we expect the Suns’ rookies to earn consistent playing time this season?

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Cam Johnson is a likely candidate to join the rotation as a rookie, but Ty Jerome and Jalen Lecque may be brought along more slowly. It’s nice, for once, for the Suns to not have the development of their first-round draft picks be based on a quick prayer answered by Lady Luck. By selecting players more NBA-ready and who fit more neatly into a box that they wanted filled, the Suns emerged from draft night with players more likely to succeed, if not the vaulted ceilings of the rawer players preferred by the last front office. The team also protected...

NBA Rumors: Sixers Could Trade Ben Simmons Or Tobias Harris For Devin Booker, ‘Metro USA’ Suggests

NBA Rumors: Sixers Could Trade Ben Simmons Or Tobias Harris For Devin Booker, ‘Metro USA’ Suggests

Since being selected as the No. 13 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker has managed to turn himself into one of the fastest rising superstars in the NBA. Last season, Booker averaged 26.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 6.8 assists while shooting 46.7 percent from the field and 32.6 percent from beyond the arc. Unfortunately, despite Booker’s explosive performance almost every night, the Suns remain as one of the worst NBA teams in the league. The Suns may have succeeded to address the major problem in their backcourt this summer, but their roster, as...

Locked On Suns Friday: The Suns’ big rotation is set up to maximize Deandre Ayton

Locked On Suns Friday: The Suns’ big rotation is set up to maximize Deandre Ayton

Between a steadfast veteran backup and floor-spacers around him, Ayton has the help to improve in Year 2. Saving the best for last (or maybe we just went from smallest to biggest), we break down the Suns’ big man rotation as we continue previewing the 2019-20 season. Everything that went into reconstructing this group was centered around building around the lone holdover, 2018 No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton. His backup is better, there is more shooting around him, and the end of the rotation is filled with young developmental depth pieces. This is where James Jones shined this...

Suns’ Deandre Ayton ‘overwhelmed’ by support for his Hurricane Dorian donation drive

Deandre Ayton may be looking to start his second season with the Phoenix Suns, but his Bahamian blood takes precedence as he is looking to raise funds to help his country in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas two weeks ago, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. The official death […] The post Suns’ Deandre Ayton ‘overwhelmed’ by support for his Hurricane Dorian donation drive appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Suns Stuff In this week’s Center of the Sun Rod touched on the performances of Ricky Rubio and Aron Baynes at the FIBA World Cup. What we are seeing is very promising. I don’t blame Devin Booker one bit for not playing with the Americans at the tournament, but at the same time I’m going to heap a ton of praise on Rubio and Baynes for doing just that. I mean playing doesn’t hurt, unless it hurts, and these guys...

Examining the Suns’ potential to improve their three-point shooting this season

Examining the Suns’ potential to improve their three-point shooting this season

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports Can last season’s weakness be turned into this season’s strength? When I first decided to take on this article, I thought it would be a fairly straightforward endeavor. It was not. In it’s most simplistic form you can just look at the three-point percentages of the players on the roster this season and compare them to the players on the roster last season. That’s part of it but certainly not all. Hitting a high percentage of threes doesn’t have as a great an impact if the attempts per game are low. Pace figures in as a slower pace leads to fewer...

NBA Rumors: Celtics Could Explore Trading Gordon Hayward To Suns If Devin Booker Becomes Available

With the minimal improvement they made in the 2019 NBA offseason, rumors started to swirl around Devin Booker and his future with the Phoenix Suns. The Suns may have managed to address their major problem in their backcourt, but their roster, as currently constructed, still doesn’t have what it takes to contend for the NBA championship or even earn a playoff spot in the deep Western Conference. If they struggle earlier in the 2019-20 NBA season, Booker may consider following the footsteps of other NBA superstars and find his way out of Phoenix before the 2020 February NBA trade...

Locked On Suns Wednesday: Wing rotation comes down to more than Mikal Bridges vs. Kelly Oubre Jr. starting

We continue to go position-by-position on the Suns’ roster as we discuss the wing rotation. We continue our positional breakdowns with a preview of the Suns’ wing rotation, where the question of who starts between Mikal Bridges and Kelly Oubre Jr. looms large. However, both are expected to get significant minutes regardless, which begs the question of how they fit together and improve individually. With rookie Cam Johnson rounding out the group, the depth chart is heavy on shooting and weak defensively. But before all of that, we react to the Sports Illustrated Top 100 and where a trio...

Deandre Ayton doing his part in Hurricane Dorian relief — Here’s how you can help!

Photo by Bart Young/NBAE via Ayton grew up in the Bahamas, a chain of islands which were decimated by Hurricane Dorian last week. Few of us have ever had to see our home devastated by a natural disaster. If you grew up in Arizona, rarely would you ever have crossed paths with a deadly storm. And even if you have had the misfortune to come in contact with something like a hurricane, few in the recent past have been as deadly as Hurricane Dorian. So as Deandre Ayton gets ready for the season, he is seeing unfathomable devastation in the islands where he grew up. As of now, the death toll...
