Royce O'Neale

The newest addition to the Phoenix Suns, traded for players such as Keita Bates-Diop, Yuta Watanabe and Chimezie Metu, Royce O'Neale is set to fill another back up forward spot along with Thaddeus Young.

In his eighth season, O'Neale has been a solid contributor to every team he has ever been a part of. This season he has been great for the Brooklyn Nets, averaging a career high shooting percentage from beyond the arc. O'Neale has also been solid through his first three games with Phoenix.

The veteran forward has showcased he is a solid option from beyond the arc, he can crash the glass consistently and distribute for his team. He is also consistent on the defensive end, being a good defender of the perimeter.

With his size and speed, he can defend any position from the point guard to the power forward position, showing his versatility on that end of the floor. If the Suns are to be successful, they will need O'Neale to show that consistency on both ends of the floor for his new team.
