NBA Offseason Buzz: Phoenix Suns
Dragic could step up after lackluster rookie season; Hill hits down slope
The experiment of trying to make non-defensive players focus on defense is over, but that doesn't mean the Suns will be back to offensively terrorizing the league as they did a few years ago. This is clearly a team rebuilding on the fly with a tight budget -- good luck with that. The hope, presumably, is that the Steve Nash-Amare Stoudemire combo can carry a roster mostly made of post-prime, pre-prime or no-prime parts. Of course, their ability to make the most of Nash's whirling-dervish style is unknown.
To see which player is taking off, who is crashing to earth and which name you'll need to know for the 2009-10 season, you must be an ESPN Insider.
