The quest to rise from the ashes starts with a new general manager, Ryan McDonough, and a new head coach, former Sun Jeff Hornacek. In the end, however, the product on the court needs a huge upgrade in talent to compete in the loaded Western Conference.

It’s typically best to let huge roster decisions simmer for 24 hours before coming to any rash conclusions. All of the facts need to be laid out on the table before accurate draft grades can be given.
