Over the past several years, NBA basketball has transformed from being a predominantly inside-out game to a perimeter-controlled game where speed and shooting are paramount.
Only four of the top-20 scorers in the league are power forwards or centers, further proving that point.
Looking at Phoenix's roster, there isn't one wing player capable of consistently leading the team in scoring.
This is an issue that has to be addressed as soon as possible.
Phoenix could go two ways in the search for a wing scorer: through the draft or in free agency.
Free agency is obviously the more expensive option, but it could provide immediate results. On the other hand, the draft is the cheaper option, though it could take longer for potential to meet production.
After looking at Phoenix's talent level and $10 million in projected cap room, it's clear Phoenix should look to draft a talented wing with its likely top-five pick in the upcoming NBA draft.
This is even more prevalent in a top-heavy draft class that features several highly touted wing prospects.
Among those expected to be top picks are Shabazz Muhammad of UCLA, Otto Porter Jr. of Georgetown, Ben McLemore of Kansas and Victor Oladipo of Indiana.
McLemore has the most scoring talent of the four and is a phenomenal athlete. He would be the best fit for Phoenix's uptempo offense.
Regardless of whom Phoenix selects, it's key that the Suns find a talented wing player who could one day consistently lead the team in scoring.
