The Suns can get a steal with the 22nd pick

It's been proven that a gem of a player could be drafted even late in the first round. History has shown that there have been a few decent players who were selected with the 22nd pick. A few notable players that some fans might recognize are Grant Williams, Walker Kessler and Jarrett Allen. Not to mention, Bobby Portis was also selected with the 22nd pick, and he's had a solid career since entering the league.

For the Suns, they have a shot at acquiring a player who's ready to help them in their championship quest. A few players who could join the team soon are Tyler Kolek from Marquette University and Kyler Filipowski from Duke University.

Both players have more than two years of experience in college. The two college players have enough experience to jump the gate and help the veteran players. Just like the players who became draft day steals, they were the players who stayed in college long enough to be helpful in the pros.
