    We all knew that the players between 6 and 30 in this draft are all a crap shoot anyway. Any of them could have gone anywhere. This guy was not on my radar but really I do not care if he fills a need adequately.

    Can never have enough shooters but the Suns had more pressing needs than small forward. Bridges should mostly fill this role.

    Again, unless the plan is to let Oubre walk...

    I'm not fond of dumping Josh Jackson and he apparently does not have much trade value. They should keep him unless they have better options.

    If the Suns want to add another shooter, I'm good with it because Cam had first round value. I'm anxious to hear how the Suns plan to use these players. I want to hear it from the Suns front office.

    Bridges may assume the responsibilities of a 1, 2 3, or 4 in different lineups.
    He did last year.

    Cotton would love the modern NBA.

    Saric is our starting PF, but I agree that we still have a HUGE starting PG need.

    On any team that would hope to be competitive, Saric is a back-up, possibly even third stringer, not a starter.

    Of course, we agree about the biggest need being starting point guard, and it appears that need will go unaddressed for a third consecutive year.

    And wasn't good at it. Like Cam Johnson, Bridges really can't create for himself or others. In fact, at this point, Booker is the only one who can do both...sort of, and Jerome is the only one who can create for others...sort of. Nobody on the roster can do it enough to make up for the overall lack of playmakers on the roster. There are too many players who are too dependent on creators we don't have.

    You know the more I look at this guy the more I like him.

    Do you know he was 41 of 81 from shots of 25 feet plus.

    and 75 of 162 - 46% from NBA 3 pt range overall.

    This dude can shoot the crap out of the ball, and he has a quick release and can shoot very well coming off screens.

    He is going to be fantastic just to camp out in the corners. He has really no ability to do anything but shoot on offense - but that is more than good enough if he does it at an elite level.

    Also his defense is not quite as bad as I originally thought. I think he is pretty much strictly a small forward however, but he is not a horrible athlete and I think he will be adequate against most 3's.

    He was a starter and put up good numbers for a Philadelphia team that made the Playoffs. Let’s not let facts get in the way though.
