Small Forward

This is where it gets interesting, as the small forward position is the starting position that the Suns likely have not locked down. Although Grayson Allen seems to be the go to option currently for the team, with his sharp shooting and defensive skills, there are other players that could be vying for the starting spot.

Players such as Nassir Little, Yuta Watanabe or Josh Okogie could try and work their way into the line up through their play. It is probably the only starting position where any player could be moved into the slot at any time.

Phoenix could also look to add a player through trade to fill the spot, with rumors suggesting the Suns could target Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges. Bridges has averaged just over 20 points per game this season and would give the Suns some much needed wing depth.

The risk with adding Bridges is his contract length and off the court baggage, however he has proven to be an effective scorer for the Hornets and would provide the Suns with much needed depth.
