One honorable mention for the Phoenix Suns, because frankly he earned it

The Suns’ bench just needed more shot-making last year and Tyson Carter can absolutely offer that. He reminds me a lot of Jevon Carter and the shot is as real with Tyson as it was for Jevon.

Tyson too carries a more adequate frame to hang in the NBA. At six-foot-four, 193 pounds, this dude was made to be the microwave-type bench player the Suns need. In the Summer League, he averaged 18 minutes, 10 points, four rebounds, and one assist per game. He too shot 46 percent from the field and 45 percent from three.

Although he put both those figures together via small sample sizes, the accuracy at which he shot the rock still holds weight.

Need more convincing? In 2021, Tyson played overseas in Greece for the GBL. There, he averaged 29 minutes, 16.5 points, three rebounds, three assists, and one steal per game. He also shot 62 percent from the field, 40 percent from three, and 77 percent from the line.

Those are NBA player shooting percentages and that is why Tyson Carter made this list. With his shooting prowess, he deserves an NBA shot and the Suns should be the ones to give it to him.
