Point guard Steve Nash leaving the team was a huge loss for the Phoenix Suns. However, the team is still in the ideal situation when it comes to the field general position.
The two PGs that jump off of the page for this team are Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic.
Dragic is coming off of a season where he averaged 14.7 points per game and 7.4 assists per game, while Bledsoe put up 8.5 points per game and 3.1 assists per game.
Dragic is a very talented point guard and he could easily be the starter on this team for the future. With that said, Bledsoe got to learn behind Chris Paul–arguably the best point guard in the league.
Shannon Brown is also another proven PG and Kendall Marshall was supposed to be the field general of the future. Brown averaged 10.5 points and 1.8 assists per game last season. As a rookie, Marshall averaged three points per game and three assists per game.
Although Marshall was drafted No. 13 overall just a year ago, it would seem like Bledsoe or Dragic will be getting most of the playing time next year. Marshall is a great passer and could still succeed in this league, but he needs to become a better scorer. Working on his shot would certainly help with that.
Whether the case, Phoenix has a lot of talent at the PG position and it is set for the future. Who knows which direction the team is going to go in, but it really cannot go wrong with whoever it decides to go with. Now, the team must continue rebuilding at other positions.
