The Phoenix Suns should consider signing free agent Bryn Forbe this offseason to provide another sharpshooter off the bench.

In today’s NBA, one of the keys to success is 3-point shooting, and with a respectable amount of cap space, the Phoenix Suns could look to improve their long-range arsenal this winter by signing unrestricted free agent Bryn Forbes.

Forbes is a 6’2” shooting guard who was born in Lansing, Michigan and had the opportunity to learn from one of the best college basketball coaches of all time in Tom Izzo at Michigan State University and Gregg Popovich with the Spurs.

During his time in the league, Forbes has been an elite catch and shoot player, shooting 40 percent from three in his career. This past season, Bryn averaged 11.2 points, 2 rebounds, and 1.7 assists on 41.7/38.8/83.3 shooting splits. It would be an understatement to say Forbes has excelled at being a reliable threat from outside, and integrating his style of play into a Monty Williams offense could do wonders for the Suns.

Bryn Forbes would be a great fit for the Phoenix Suns.

Outside of Devin Booker, the Suns have no shooting guards and have players share minutes at the two while Book takes a rest. Forbes would be an amazing backup for Devin. You have your superstar hitting the bench and coming in for him is a highly efficient 3-point shooter who doesn’t need to handle the ball to be effective.

Putting Bryn next to the passing and defense of Jevon Carter or Cameron Payne off the bench would be great for a team hoping to make the playoffs. Assuming the Suns run it back with nearly the same roster they would probably have the best shooting bench in the league.

Forbes would also allow Devin Booker to play point guard if Monty Williams plans on doing that. Forbes would be a sniper like right next to him and make defenses have to stay honest and limit their double-teaming on Booker.

Having a coach like Monty Williams would be a smooth transition considering Williams is a Gregg Popovich prodigy and holds his players accountable. Williams has preached all of this past season that everything you want is on the other side of hard, and that is nothing new for a guy like Forbes.
