    Jerami Grant vs. Kelly Oubre, Deandre Ayton's important Year 3, plus the two most Suns-like draft prospects with David Nash

    Jerami Grant vs. Kelly Oubre, Deandre Ayton's important Year 3, plus the two most Suns-like draft prospects with David Nash

    On today's episode, as we return to podcasting action after a quick hiatus, Evan is joined by David Nash to go over all the latest Suns-related news and hot topics.
    First up, Jerami Grant and Kelly Oubre Jr. Shams Charania reported on Thursday the Suns are one of three teams expected to pursue Grant if he hits unrestricted free agency. Is Grant worth it over Oubre from the Suns' perspective? Grant's lower usage role could help Deandre Ayton's development, but could Oubre actually tap into this himself in 2021?
    Speaking of Ayton, an important Year 3 is upcoming for the big fella. Where does Ayton stand in the NBA in terms of centers and overall value right now? A max contract decision is right around the corner, so what should happen next season for that to be a for sure guarantee?
    Closing out the show, Evan and David discuss the two 2020 draft prospects who check all the Suns' boxes. TCU's Desmond Bane and Florida State's Devin Vassell would be amazing fits in Phoenix. We explain how so, and why Bane could actually be this year's Cam Johnson.
    All of this, plus so much more, in a jam-packed episode!

    Discussing Davis Bertans, Patrick Williams, and big trade scenarios with Zona Sports

    Discussing Davis Bertans, Patrick Williams, and big trade scenarios with Zona Sports

    On today's episode, Evan is joined by @AZSportsZone to go over the latest Suns-related notes in the thick of their offseason.
    First up, Davis Bertans. According to NBC Sports Washington, the Phoenix Suns are expected to pursue Bertans in free agency. However, is it worth it? Could Cam Johnson be a better version of Bertans long-term?
    Patrick Williams, the Florida State wing/big, is generating lottery buzz. Could he make sense in Phoenix? We go over how Williams' versatile, high IQ playing style could really fit well with the Suns. However, is GM James Jones willing to roll the dice on a younger prospect?
    Finally, we go over two maybe unrealistic trade scenarios. There's a lot of dots connecting Chris Paul, but does it even make sense for Phoenix to pursue? Also, for fun, how about Giannis Antetokounmpo and Devin Booker eventually pairing up?

    Suns reportedly preparing to pursue Fred VanVleet in free agency

    Suns reportedly preparing to pursue Fred VanVleet in free agency

    On today's episode, Evan and Brandon react to the news from Shams Charania revolving around Fred VanVleet. The Phoenix Suns are one of three teams preparing to chase him in free agency. What does this mean for the Suns' roster if this actually comes to fruition?
    VanVleet is exactly what you want to put next to Devin Booker thanks to his shooting, defense, and playmaking versatility. However, will Phoenix have enough cash to reel FVV in? There's two scenarios the Suns can choose to make it happen.
    Option A = Renouncing all of their free agents; Option B = Trading Kelly Oubre Jr. Which route makes more sense for Phoenix? The answer may surprise you.
    Will Phoenix be in a playoff team if they add VanVleet? One thing is for sure: FVV, Booker, and Ricky Rubio soaking up all of their guard minutes would be one of the best in the NBA. It also helps that VanVleet fits right into this core's age timeline.
    All of this, plus so much more, as FVV and his fit with the Suns goes under the microscope from all angles!

    Evaluating the Suns' core with Dave DuFour of The Athletic

    On today's episode, Evan is joined by Dave DuFour of The Athletic to go over the Phoenix Suns' 2019-20 season while also analyzing their intriguing young core. Monty Williams brought much-needed culture building to the table, plus many improvements across the board from multiple players.
    Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, Ricky Rubio, Kelly Oubre Jr., Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, and Dario Saric all go under the microscope as Dave offers up his analysis on all of them. Hint: He loves what Phoenix is putting together right now from a roster building perspective.
    Closing out the show, we discuss whether the Suns should run it back with this roster next season. What's the most important need in their rotation? Also, should mid-40s be the realistic expectation for next season's win total?
    This episode is a must-listen, Suns fans. Dave dropped some knowledge as he's bullish on what the Suns could become very soon in the Western Conference.
