S.O.T.T. - Phoenix Suns

The moment all Suns fans have been dreading for a few years is finally upon is: Phoenix now exists in a post-Nash era. Sure, he hasn’t signed with another team, and maybe the Suns will even bring him back, but it is time to move on. Fortuitously, the team has a couple of different directions it can go in because of its flexibility. Currently the Suns only have six players (and not a single point or shooting guard to be found) under contract for next year, and project to be somewhere around $25 million under the salary cap.

At center the Suns have double-double machine Marcin Gortat locked up for a couple of years, and a combination of Channing Frye/Markieff Morris and Hakim Warrick/Jared Dudley means that the Suns have a lot of big shooters, but nobody to get them the ball (or play defense for that matter). With a bevy of competent point guards on the market (Deron Williams, Steve Nash, Aaron Brooks, Goran Dragic, Jeremy Lin) it would behoove the Suns to identify their man and shell out some cash.

That leaves an athletic, driving, defense-playing shooting guard as their draft target. If that player isn’t on the board, however, they should look to add toughness wherever they can.

They could also probably use another Gorilla because there's no way he came through that dunk uninjured. Plus, the Phoenix Zoo sucks.
