In Episode 11 of the Valley of the Suns Podcast, we recap how Phoenix wound up with two All-Stars and examine potential Damian Jones replacements for that open roster spot.

Welcome, Valley Boyz and Girlz to another episode of the Valley of the Suns Podcast!

In Episode 11, host Gerald Bourguet recaps another busy week for the Phoenix Suns, from their 32-point win over the Portland Trail Blazers to their disappointing and controversial last-second loss to the Charlotte Hornets.

Afterwards, the pod examines the Suns’ long-winding road to getting two All-Stars, including what Chris Paul had to say about Devin Booker getting snubbed in the first place with our Quote of the Week.

From there, it’s time to take a look at potential replacement options for the team’s open roster spot after Phoenix decided to waive backup big Damian Jones. Is Dewayne Dedmon as good as it gets, or could names like JaVale McGee, Aron Baynes or even Blake Griffin hit the buyout market soon?

Finally, Episode 11 wraps up with two minor adjustments the Suns need to make (and the reasons why): Starting Jae Crowder over Frank Kaminsky again, and finding a way to sustain Devin Booker’s hot starts for a full game.
