Potential Fit

With Archie Goodwin ready to breakout this upcoming season and Bogdan Bogdanovic coming from overseas shortly thereafter, the Suns already have two young shooting guards for the future. Now considering the fact Brandon Knight (assuming he is back) will also be playing as a combo guard, there is truly no room at all on this Suns team for Aaron Harrison.

The Suns might see value in picking him in the second round — as he most certainly will still be available — but even then that would be a mistake. With a draft heavy in bigs who can provide a serious paint presence and the ability to defend, the Suns would be doing themselves a disservice not to seriously look at taking, not one, but two big men in the draft.

(As a side note, that assertion is strongly due to this writer’s opinion that the Morris twins need to go and the Suns need to start working on their replacements.)

Even signing Harrison as an undrafted free-agent would be a serious waste of time. He would not be better than any of the Suns’ existing guards and keeping him on the roster would limit Phoenix’s ability to have depth at other positions.
