    The Suns really need to keep Oubre. He is the third piece alongside Booker and Ayton.

    And they need a veteran point guard. Tyler Johnson cannot be allowed to start at the point.

    The idea of Johnson starting until Morant is ready is mostly out the window. It's for sure the Suns need a starting point guard. I'd really like to keep Johnson because he can play both guard positions.

    I think the lesson to be learned, draft players that have skills that will translate to the NBA, e.g., shooting, passing and rebounding.

    As you mentioned previously, Shamorie Ponds might be one of those players in the second round.

    Ponds will not go unknown until draft day. He will start to move up draft boards soon. He is too good, too smart.

    Yeah he's already getting a lot of talk and a nod as a draft climber.

    Are those official measurements? I thought I heard that he backed it of the combine last second so he wasn’t going to be there.

    I guess I a more ready to have a rookie PG. I watched almost every Magic Johnson game. Maurice Cheeks hit the ground running. If you have a good rookie PG there's no reason they cannot take the reigns.

    I was bummed when he backed out of the combine. I’ve been super curious about his official height as well as wingspan.

    With not a lot of cream at the top of this draft, this might be the draft to trade down or trade the pick for a future pick.

    I like some later picks in this draft.

    No point guard in this draft, including Morant, Garland and White, is capable of that.

    It's not really an option unless a trade that includes a point guard presents itself.

    I'm only saying there is talent later on in the draft. If the Suns already had a starting point guard, I wouldn't be afraid to roll the dice.
