When a team finishes 24-58, naturally there will be many improvements necessary.

From chemistry issues to offensive woes, training camp becomes the perfect place to begin ironing out key issues. With the Suns specifically, several important improvements come to mind, things that must be ironed out this season or the team will continue to flounder in the near future, regardless of how many high draft picks they end up acquiring.

The roster is full of players whose raw talent is in need of proper coaching and developmental training. The coaching staff needs to focus on issues such as discipline (the Suns were the worst fouling team in the league last season with 24.8 per game and led the league in technical fouls with 89).

The team was also the worst defensive team in the league last season allowing 113.3 per game, the most points per game allowed by the franchise is 30 years. The Suns were also the third worst 3-point shooting team in the league last season, the worst rank they have finished since the inception of the 3-point shot, and nine spots worse than they finished the season prior.

Now, the additions of Troy Daniels, and hopefully at some point this season Alec Peters, and that alone should improve based on their superior outside shooting ability. But the fact remains that there are other issues with shooting than just having a capable shooters.

Whether it be fundamental issues or team philosophy, many improvements can be made during training camp.

Here are five big improvements that can be made.
