Phoenix Suns March Madness Wish List: R.J. Davis

At this point, we’re knee deep into the tournament’s second round, where the North Carolina Tar Heels and guard R.J. Davis are surprisingly still alive after taking down the top-seeded and defending champion Baylor Bears.

After a solid regular season where he illustrated some game-breaking passing and shooting abilities, averaging 3.6 assists per game while shooting 37.9 percent from deep, Davis took things to another here in March.

In his team’s first round matchup vs Marquette, Davis struggled shooting the ball, but he still found a way to contribute, dishing out a tournament-high 12 assists to go with his four points.

But against Baylor, he put it all together. While embodying a true force as a facilitator yet again, dishing out six assists, Davis turned things around shooting the ball. He absolutely burned the Bears up from beyond the arc, going 5-10 on 3-pointers to finish with a game-high 30 points.

Davis also hit several big time shots down the stretch to help cement his team’s upset victory as well. Being an efficient shooter, willing passer, and with the clutch gene, this kid would fit in perfectly on this Phoenix Suns team.

With Landry Shamet’s inconsistencies, Elfrid Payton’s ineffectiveness, and the general need for extra help at the guard spot due to Chris Paul’s injury, he makes for an ideal plug-in piece off the bench.
