Just like any team that doesn’t make the playoffs, the Phoenix Suns could use some help in the 2014 NBA Draft; however, they did finish 48-34 this season. Still, this is a deep draft class, which means the team could pick up a future star. With that in mind, read on to see five players who Phoenix should target at pick No. 18.

I’m not sure which team is going to pick Kyle Anderson up, but they will be getting a great player in him. Anderson averaged 14.6 points per game, 8.8 rebounds per game and 6.5 assists per game this past season. May I remind you that he stands at 6-foot-9.

T.J. Warren played a huge role for the North Carolina State Wolfpack this past season. He did average 24.9 points per game. He may not be the most athletic prospect in the draft, but he is a proven scorer, which should intrigue many teams.

Cleanthony Early seems to be ready for the NBA. After all, he did drop 31 points against the Kentucky Wildcats in the 2014 NCAA tournament. Kentucky has two players entering this year’s draft, and many other future draft selections. Regardless, he can score in a number of different ways, which includes stroking the three-ball.

Jerami Grant was not the best player on Syracuse this past season, but he is very athletic. Plus, he stands at 6-foot-8. Apparently NBA scouts like that.

I want to say Adreian Payne will go higher, but who knows. Payne is athletic, he can hit from behind the arc and he stands at 6-foot-10. The best part about Payne is that he is NBA-ready and could play for Phoenix right away.
