1. Josh Okogie

Another interesting case, perhaps no Suns' player saw their stock drop more than Josh Okogie last season. He started for the team on opening night, yet by the time the team were being swept in the playoffs, Okogie was playing less than five minutes in two out of those four losses to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

There is some hope that Okogie can actually be a contributor however, as he played 14 minutes in the final game of that series loss. Proof that when former head coach Frank Vogel's job was essentially on the line, he at least had the thought to turn to Okogie to see if his defensive abilities could help. That they couldn't really is another story.

Should the Phoenix Suns give Steve Nash a statue?. dark. Next. Should the Phoenix Suns give Steve Nash a statue?

This is one of those situations where it feels like Okogie will come back, because he really does have a chance to get himself a better deal after some strong play in the summer of 2025. He's still only 25, and in a year's time the Suns' cap sheet situation may be in a different place. One that allows them to bring Okogie back at a fair number if they want to.

It might not get the fans too excited, but it would be fair to say that Okogie's skill set is one that is lacking in Phoenix right now. It is about trying to find a place for him, which would appear to be off the bench from here on out. It wouldn't be a huge shock if he opted out and a rival gave him a better and longer deal, but that doesn't look likely right now. Okogie will be back.
