2014 NBA Draft: Phoenix Suns won’t rule out a PG


The Phoenix Suns had great success using a pair of players who can play point guard, Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic in the back court together. It looks like those two will be paired together for some time and that is certainly something for them to be excited about.

According to Paul Coro of AZCentral Sports, the Suns won’t rule out drafting a point guard.

So how does one work with the other? The Suns still have reasons to consider drafting a point guard because: Eric Bledsoe is a restricted free agent, and well-laid plans to secure him could go awry; Goran Dragic can opt out of his contract next year; The Suns showed the need for a third point guard, and Ish Smith is entering a team-option year; and the Suns now have complete basketball control of D-League affiliate Bakersfield to develop a player in a mirror-image minor-league system.

The Suns, who are armed with picks could look in any number of directions at point guard. They would have to trade up for the likes of Dante Exum or Marcus Smart, but could get their hands on Tyler Ennis, Elfrid Payton or Shabazz Napier.
