I see he looks like he would fit our offense. However, there's no mention of his defense. It seems we now have somewhat of a read on James Jones. He want's guys that can play defense, ball handle to extent, and be able shooters and scorers within the .5 system. I think this kid definitely has the offense.

Monty has players buying into playing defense.

Maybe we can teach him to play defense but I haven't done much research on the upcoming draft which is a welcome change of pace from prior seasons.

The Suns only have one draft pick in this draft, number 29. No second round pick.

Combo guard Ayo Dosunmu is an interesting possibility.

Good size, nice stats, learning from the legend and point God(if he stays :p).
He looks really good on paper for that high in the draft.
Need to find some videos on him.

For sure he would fit our offense. But could he RUN our offense.

No telling. I would be OK with Cam Payne off the bench running the offense, with this kid playing in Books place at the two. I just don't know if he can play the defense. I like when The Bull Dog and Payne play together off the bench because they get on opposing guards and usually get some steals, etc.

Big point guard who plays D and rebounds but whose projected NBA 3 is suspect and has a poor asst/to ratio.

Well. 39% from 3 is not bad. If he has the strength and form, I am not sure why his range cannot extend easily to the 3 point line. CP3 should be able to teach him something about not turning the ball over. This is all I can get from stats.

Gotta watch a player play. Just the highlights I have seen, he seems like a bit bigger Cam Payne.

I would think a sg with size is also desirable. Someone that can create their own shot when book rests. A Mann or Maxey type player.

It's a good point. The Suns need another player that can create his own shot.
