The Phoenix Suns are on the cusp of seeing the same success they once saw with such players as Steve Nash, Charles Barkley, and Amar'e Stoudemire. With new coach Jeff Hornacek at the helm, the Suns have an opportunity to build something special and will do so this summer. These five bold predictions for their 2014 offseason may not be to far off.
The Suns could definitely use Early's versatile scoring ability, which could benefit them right away. His athleticism is through the roof and his defensive potential is intriguing. This move could improve their bench depth and he would be a safe pick.
With Goran Dragic improving so much last year, the Suns have leverage in their backcourt decisions. Either Bledsoe will choose a team that can pay him more or the Suns will not attempt to match another team's offer, since they feel Dragic is suitable to lead the team.
Stephenson may not have helped his stock with the many antics that filled this year's playoffs, but he did prove he is a fearless competitor that can boost any lineup. He can see that the Pacers' locker room issue will prevent his opportunity to play at the highest level and jump at the potential of the Suns.
The Suns aren't known for much and defense is definitely an area they can improve in. In comes Thabo Sefolosha, who can straight up lock up. He can even provide the occasional scoring burst, depending on how he's feeling. Jeff Hornacek is capable of using Sefolosha in ways that Oklahoma City Thunder could not.
The most explosive athlete in the NBA draft paired with the most explosive dunker in the league, Gerald Green, would be ridiculous. It would definitely be an interesting air apparent to Green or even a dynamic dunking duo. The possibilities could be endless or end very quickly, but LaVine is worth the risk.
