2. Josh Okogie

The Suns wouldn't be where they are if it weren't for the efforts from Josh Okogie. He's been consistent in his brand of basketball and has also started a few games this season, 11 to be exact. Okogie has proven that he's valuable for the team, especially with the way he makes hustle plays. Offensively, he can't offer much, but the fans know what he brings.

The 6-foot-4 two-way wing has not had a consistent playing time over the past few games. However, given that Okogie is a significant part of the team's success, Vogel should consider playing him more. At his size, he's an excellent offensive rebounder. The stars will put up more shots than usual, and having a reliable rebounder for lengthy periods will be effective.

Okogie is sixth in the team in offensive rebounding per 36 minutes. He's also the team leader in offensive fouls drawn, with 26, further proving his value to the team when on the floor.
