2. Getting a point guard for the team

A point guard is necessary for any team to succeed. The Suns didn't have a floor general last season and relied heavily on Devin Booker to handle the rock. While it was impressive to see the former Kentucky star standout being the unofficial point guard, the team still lacked a crucial piece. Lucky for them, Coach Bud understands the need for a point guard.

During his years with the Bucks, he was able to coach different ball handlers. The players he had weren't traditional point guards like Chris Paul or Steve Nash, but they were still an effective piece to the puzzle. The two-time Coach of the Year had success with two-way guards like Eric Bledsoe and Jrue Holiday, who are both non-traditional facilitators.

What the Suns need is a defensive point guard as they already have enough firepower with their Big 3. The good news is, that the free agent market is full of quality two-way point guards. The bad news, however, is that the team doesn't have the salary cap to sign most of the good-quality guards.

Still, there are available free agents they can pursue. A veteran guard like Kyle Lowry might take a pay cut and join the squad, or a guard like Kris Dunn.
