Phoenix Suns: Michael Redd Needs to Start over Jared Dudley

Michael Redd has been hampered the last two and a half seasons with knee injuries and finally might be getting his legs back. Redd has scored in double figures for two straight games now, and even is playing more than Shannon Brown.

Phoenix's offense is perfect for Redd and his shooting stroke could drastically spread the floor for Steve Nash. A lineup of Nash, Redd, Grant Hill, Channing Frye and Marcin Gortat could be exactly what the Suns need.

Lets face it, the offense has been stagnant without a lack of scoring. And what does Redd do best? Score. I'm not saying he's going to put up 20 points a game but 14 or 15 doesn't seem too far fetched.

The move of Redd to the starting lineup would allow Jared Dudley to move back to his natural role of backup small forward. The bench unit would then consist of Sebastian Telfair, Shannon Brown, Jared Dudley, Markieff Morris and Robin Lopez.

Overall, the Suns would benefit greatly from starting Redd and should do so for the team's next game against Milwaukee
