Key Players Added: Kendall Marshall, Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley, Luis Scola
Key Players Kept: Shannon Brown
Key Players Lost: Steve Nash, Grant Hill
After the loss of Steve Nash, Suns fans were ready to accept a few seasons of being on the bottom of the league, but the management had other ideas. Phoenix drafted a pass-first point guard with a high IQ to come off the bench behind the rising Goran Dragic.
Dragic played the first three seasons in Phoenix under Steve Nash and now returns to the desert after making some noise last season in Houston having career highs in points, assists, and steals.
Michael Beasley is still very young and he proved he can be a scoring threat in 2011 when he averaged 19.2 PPG.
Scola gives them a low post player to complement Gortat and Phoenix has a good chance to make a playoff return this season.
