Last year the Phoenix Suns acquired Eric Bledsoe and he and Goran Dragic formed a very formidable back court. With Bledsoe’s future in question this offseason, the Suns used one of their three first round picks on former Syracuse Orange point guard Tyler Ennis. Then, they acquired restricted free agent point guard Isaiah Thomas in a sign-and-trade with the Sacramento Kings. They wound up signing Bledsoe to a five-year, $70 million deal and now have four point guards who all likely believe they have the ability to start (and we know three of them do with the rookie, Ennis, being the only question).

Chuck Myron of Hoops Rumors could see the Suns dealing one of their guards.
"And don’t rule out Phoenix trying to unload one of its guards. Which leads me to this next question……They tried it last year, with Ryan McDonough openly admitting that he was peddling his deep reserve of first-rounders in search of a star. I think they’ll try it again this year, unless they somehow come roaring out of the gates like Portland did last year and they don’t want to mess with their chemistry."
The Suns continue to say they can find enough time to play all of their guards but it will be interesting to see if that really works out. If not, we could definitely see them deal one or two of them.
