With Steve Nash, and a slew of other veterans, at the end of their contracts, the Suns have an opportunity to start looking to the future direction of the franchise. How Markieff Morris, last year’s #13 pick, will develop is still up in the air, the Suns will have another shot at #13 to add a player who can give Suns’ fans hope in the upcoming seasons. With the backcourt seemingly open, and a group of potential guards whose draft range fall within the #13 pick, the Suns may have to settle for which player falls to them (unless they made a promise, which is another discussion.) Let’s take a look at some of Phoenix’s potential draft secenarios:
2011-2012 Record – 33-33 (3rd in Pacific Division, Western Conference)
Head Coach – Alvin Gentry
2-year Draft History
