The Phoenix Suns started out the year with a firesale of sorts. They traded away all their top talent after signing Eric Bledsoe with what many thought was the ultimate tank plan. The Suns are currently fighting for a playoff spot in the competitive Western Conference with no signs of slowing down. Next season could be even better with a few additions to the roster.
The Suns like to get up and down the court, which leads to fast break opportunities. A guy like Turner could thrive in this system because he can handle the ball as a facilitator or scorer. He has great rebounding instincts, passing skills, and can lock down a hot scorer on defense.
The Suns are in desperate need of a scoring small forward who can play defense. Deng fits that bill. He can create his own shot, move well without the ball and has great defensive instincts.
His age and salary may scare teams away, but Pau is quietly having one of his best season for the dismal Lakers. He may not be the athlete who can run the court on every possession, but if you give him the ball in the post, he will easily get you 20-plus points and 10-plus rebounds a game.
The Western Conference does not have many dominant centers, and if Bosh was given a featured role in the offense with the Suns. he could very well reach All–NBA status.
The Suns are an offensive force when he is on the floor. He is young, athletic and fearless. He is a great defensive player who still has the young legs to play 35-plus minutes at both ends of the floor. Bledsoe is the cornerstone to the Suns' future.
