Don’t look now, but the Suns have quietly put together an interesting team that could stay competitive in their first post-Nash era.
With the 13 players on the roster having an average age of 25.9 years old (not counting the 36-year-old Brad Miller, who is expected to retire), the Suns figure to be one of the younger teams in the league this season. And after an aggressive offseason, they walked away with a fan-favorite returning, a talented player with a new attitude, a scrappy post player, tons of shooters and a surprisingly deep bench.
Steve Nash meant more to his team than almost any other player in the league, but the Suns' front office moved on without the two-time MVP by building a young core that could mold into one of the more intriguing teams in the league. The Suns could find themselves playing meaningful games in April and May.
