Oladipo led the Big Ten with 2.2 steals per game and a defensive rating of 86.9. He has enough defensive potential to come into the NBA and immediately draw comparisons to other lockdown defenders such as Tony Allen, Avery Bradley or Iman Shumpert

Later in the draft, prospects such as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Jamaal Franklin, Allen Crabbe and Archie Goodwin should also be available. Some of those guys may not be stars in the NBA, but at the very least, they would add more depth to the Suns' bench.

If they really want, the Suns could target a free agent such as Monta Ellis or trade for Eric Gordon of the New Orleans Pelicans. However, both of those players are fairly inefficient and would be unwieldy contracts for Phoenix, as Gordon is on a max contract and Ellis (whether he deserves it or not) will probably ask for at least $11 or $12 million per year, if not more.

It all depends on how GM Ryan McDonough plans to rebuild the Suns and if he wants to build a team through free agency or the draft. In all likelihood though, we'll see one or two new prospects playing shooting guard for the Suns next year.
