Lowe: Suns lack long-term vision

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

In his preview of the entire NBA, Grantland's Zach Lowe puts the Phoenix Suns in his lowest tier of teams.

Lowe, like many national pundits, doesn't give the Phoenix Suns much of a chance this season. Even more damning, he puts them in his lowest tier of teams: "In the Lottery, Defined by Uncertainty". Here's what he had to say:

Who are the NBA's top title contenders this season? And who's trailing the pack? - Grantland
There's nothing fatally bad going on here, but aside from snagging an extra first-rounder from the Wolves in the Wesley JohnsonRobin LopezHakim WarrickBrad Miller trade, it's hard to see a lot of long-term vision. Again: Nothing's fatal. The Suns can work their way to max-level cap space as early as this summer.

Lowe goes on to criticize the Suns for over-paying for Michael Beasley, which is a shift from the long-held national opinion that the Phoenix Suns were too cheap to pay for talent. He also is skeptical about the Suns' ability to be a good defensive team.
