    Curious to see who everyone is leaning toward initially. I allowed two picks to hopefully get a better idea who is leading the field out of the gate. I know a bunch of posters (me included) would like to trade, but let’s keep this thread to selecting a player at #6.

    Gotta go with one of the two point guards.

    I can't believe Hunter has 3 votes. WHY? WHY!? Reveal yourselves!

    Early thought
    1. Garland if James Jones is convinced that Rich Paul and his meniscus are no issues
    2. Reddish
    3. maybe Garland despite his slender frame, injury, Rich Paul and small sample size?
    4. Tyler Herro - I am not even kidding. Drafting a potential JJ Reddick at 6 might be the best thing you can actually do in this draft.
    5. maybe reach for White despite his dumb hair? It might seem minor but I don't think a true competitor would play with that kind of hair style. Even if cutting it makes you just 0.01% better.


    As for the other options

    De'Andre Hunter. A wing player that musters barely half a steal and half a block and rebounds poorly is red flag that he won't translate to the NBA. Like I said not even at 32!

    Culver - I dont get the fit at all and hope he is not even on the board

    Bol Bol - a project center is the last thing we need

    Hachimura - his upside is that he could eventually be a backup imo.

    Brandon Clarke - already 23, can't shoot, poor defensive rebounder, destined to be a backup center

    'Sorry, but I voted for Other -- meaning trade the pick for a vet.
    Why? Do you really want to put the offense in the hands of a rookie?

    Why not draft a Power Forward? We have none on the roster? It should be easier for him to fit in
    than a Point Guard.

    I don't like the power forwards available at 6. Pretty simple. I think our need for a point guard is more important. And I can't forget that Shai G-A was taken with pick 11 last year, so if we DON'T trade it, then I picked what I picked.

    I'm also in the camp of wanting to trade it rather than use it, I just don't think we will.

    “Other” means a player not listed... this is a no trade poll.

    Why, why Reddish? This is already the most D deprived team in the league. Opposition players would get a woody just landing at Sky Harbor.

    I know it's early, and it's Bleacher Report of all places, but they've already posted a mock draft and have us drafting Garland.

    Then I abstain. But I'm sure you'll have a quorum. :)

    Do we really want to go the Dragan Bender route again?

    Reddish is a good defender with excellent tools.

    He got one of my votes...first was for Garland.

    To be honest, it's not so much a vote of confidence for Hunter as it is a lack of confidence in the other options.

    I get your point about the red flags, but he did score 27 and get 9 boards in the national championship. He's a good defender who played in a Virginia system that focuses on defense. He shot 52% from the field. He's got solid size and athleticism. I don't think he's a star, but I like his chances to become a usable rotation player on a good NBA team. He's passed the eye test when I've watched him play.

    Garland would be my pick if he's there and we can't trade, but I have concerns on him as well.

    I still need to be convinced on White (and might end up talking myself into him for lack of other options). Culver seems like an awful fit for this team. And taking a raw "upside" pick seems like a horrible idea for the Suns at this point. That rules out pretty much everyone else I could even stomach taking at the 6th pick.

    I don’t get the Jarrett stuff. 6’5 so okay size for a Sg. Not a great 3pt shooter. Poor ballhandler. Not a great athlete. Okay passer. I don’t get it.

    If I have to pick, I go Garland, Hunter, White, in that order, but since I think Garland will be off the board, I voted Hunter and White.
