The Suns are hoping to re-sign P.J. Tucker this summer.
Projected Starter: P.J. Tucker (Restricted Free Agent)
Like Eric Bledsoe, P.J. Tucker is a restricted free agent and coming off a strong season. Also like Bledsoe, the Suns would like to re-sign him.
Tucker is a versatile stopper, and though he mostly defends opposing 2s and 3s, he's strong enough to switch onto some 4s and not give up ground. Offensively, he took a big step forward by upping his three-point shooting from 31 percent to 39 percent, making him a much more flexible option.
The one concern about Tucker is that the three-point shooting might be a fluke—he made less than one three per game, and it'll be interesting to see if he can hit at that rate on more attempts. Overall though, Tucker had a great season and is an easy pick as next year's starter should he return.
Marcus Morris found his NBA niche last year, emerging as an off-the-bench sharpshooter who can create a bit of offense when needed.
Morris shot 38 percent from deep and hit 45 percent of his spot-up threes, per Synergy Sports Technology (subscription required). He did so on solid volume as well, launching over five of them per 36 minutes.
Beyond shooting, Morris is a smart cutter and a serviceable post player, especially if he's matched up against a smaller defender. He also runs a surprisingly mean pick-and-roll with his twin brother Markieff Morris, which is fun for obvious reasons.
T.J. Warren (No. 14 pick in the 2014 NBA draft)
Like Tyler Ennis, T.J. Warren can be seen as an insurance pick in case things go wrong for the Suns in free agency. And again, like Ennis, Warren can really play.
Warren's a natural scorer, but a strange one.
He's not a great athlete and can't shoot very well (27 percent from deep last year), but he's very efficient inside the arc thanks to his penchant for hitting floaters and runners. According to his DraftExpress profile, he took the third-highest amount of runners and floaters in college basketball last season and hit over 50 percent of them, an elite rate.
Warren's outside shot is a question mark, as is whether he can transition to defending the perimeter after spending a lot of time guarding bigs in college. Still, the Suns don't have a ton of players who can routinely create their own offense, and Warren can absolutely do that.
He's listed here as Phoenix's third-string small forward, but he'll get serious minutes next season, no matter what happens with Tucker.
