Potential fits for the Suns in the 2022 NBA Draft

The unfortunate truth that the Phoenix Suns don’t have a pick continues to be unfortunate and continues to be true.

However, widespread whispers say that the Suns are thinking about getting into various points in the draft. So, in this pre-draft exercise, I’ll give my favorite fits for the Suns at each range throughout the draft.

This report from ESPN isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement of James Jones taking any swings or high upside prospects. In fact, if you read the whole thing essentially the front office doesn’t care about the draft as a whole. Shocker. We’ll see how much stock to put into that and how much smoke was in that report as time goes on.

Damon’s picks:

  1. Dyson Daniels – G League Ignite – Wing
  2. AJ Griffin – Duke – Wing

Zona’s picks:

Damon’s pick:

  1. Jalen Williams – Santa Clara – Wing

Damon’s picks:

  1. Andrew Nembhard – Gonzaga – Guard
  2. Jaylin Williams – Arkansas – Big
  3. EJ Liddell – Ohio State – Forward

Zona’s pick:

  1. Keon Ellis – Alabama – Wing
  2. Andrew Nembhard – Gonzaga- Guard
  3. David Roddy  РColorado St. РForward

Undrafted

Damon’s picks:

  1. Keon Ellis – Alabama – Wing
  2. Tevin Brown – Murray State – Guard
  3. Lester Quinones – Memphis – Guard

It remains to be seen if the Phoenix Suns will even bother to trade into this draft, but if they do you better believe we’ll break down whoever they acquire in great detail. Given the recent ESPN report, I wouldn’t hold my breath on that. And neither should you.

We’ll have more as tonight unfolds.
