Despite boasting both Devin Booker, who is 14th in the NBA in scoring at 24.6 points per night, and DeAndre Ayton, the No. 1 overall pick in this past summer’s draft, the Phoenix Suns remain horrid. Their record sits at 12-50, worst in the entire NBA, and a win over the Miami Heat on Monday night broke what had been a 17-game losing losing streak. The Suns have not made the playoffs since the 2009-2010 season, and when this season of misery concludes, will not have won more than 25 games in four seasons.
The Suns will once again be in position for a top three pick the NBA Draft, but that hasn’t eased what ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says are the league’s major concerns about the franchise moving forward.
