It will be another ugly year for the Suns, but give new general manager Ryan McDonough some credit.
He’s finally acknowledged that they are a rebuilding franchise and has done a pretty good job of acquiring picks and conserving cap room.
He’s also adding young players with serious upside as the deal for Bledsoe could be a steal, as could be the drafting of both Len and Goodwin.
They also have both Marcin Gortat and Goran Dragic, who I expect to be dealt sometime this season for future assets.
Will the Suns stink next year? Absolutely.
But there is light at the end of the tunnel and they will be throwing their hat in the mix to win the rights to draft Andrew Wiggins.
