With a revamped roster featuring star acquisitions like Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal, the Suns are gearing up for an exciting NBA season. However, the question of who will fill the final starting lineup spot remains unanswered.
Following the departure of Chris Paul in the Beal trade, the Suns now have four guaranteed starters in Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, Durant, and Beal.
Head coach Frank Vogel spoke about the competition for the fifth starting spot, emphasizing the importance of finding the right fit.
“I think the one that is going to fit the best, really,” Vogel told Duane Rankin of Arizona Republic. “We’ll have a lot of guys that have an opportunity to be that fifth guy.
“The versatility of maybe being able to guard multiple positions or maybe it’s an elite shooter. Maybe it’s just another playmaker.
“I think we have a lot of guys with a lot of different skill sets, and we’ll put a lot of different combinations throughout the year, but I think all of those skill sets would fit the four guys you mentioned. We’ll see how it plays out.”
