The Phoenix Suns are fighting valiantly for a spot in the playoffs. The Suns are currently tied with the Utah Jazz for the eight seed with a 33-30 record after a gritty win against the Los Angeles Clippers.
The team will have to continue playing great basketball if they have any hopes of making the playoffs this season. This is especially true when you factor in the three remaining games for the Jazz.
Needless to say, the Suns have their work cut out for them if they plan on making the playoffs this season.
But regardless of what happens to finish out this up-and-down year, what happens next season for the Suns?
Steve Nash and Grant Hill are the biggest names on the team set to become free agents. Unless the Suns make vast improvements to the current roster, we may have seen the last of M-V-Steve in a Suns uniform.
Here is the best-case scenario for the Suns if they plan on being a more competitive team next season.
