Phoenix Suns point guards
- Chris Paul
- Cameron Payne
- Langston Galloway
- Jevon Carter
Last season in Oklahoma, Chris Paul averaged 31.5 minutes a game and there’s no reason that would change with the Phoenix Suns as Cameron Payne showed that he was a very competent backup last season hitting a remarkable 52 percent from deep on almost 4 attempts per game.
Picking up Langston Galloway was a big score for the Suns, but he will never be mistaken for a point guard based on last season as he is very much a shoot-first player.
However, the Suns coaches are probably going to look hard at his point guard skills which were pretty good during his first year in the league, but because of his scoring ability, they are going to be very eager to see if Galloway could be the man after CP3’s run with the Suns is over. Having Paul as a mentor will improve Galloway’s chances exponentially.
The Suns played Carter as more of a shooting guard last season, so the only way he gets meaningful minutes at the point would be if there is injury.
