Video: 48 Hours with Suns coach Corey Gaines

New, comments

Phoenix Suns assistant coach / Phoenix Mercury head coach is followed by Suns.com for 48 hours during the recent road trip. Gaines mixes both parts of his job, working with Suns young players and scouting potential first overall picks for the Mercury.

The most interesting part of this was Corey explaining his process for scouting players. The Mercury had a ton of injuries this summer and won the WNBA Draft Lottery so they pick first with Baylor's Brittney Griner the likely (but not definitive) choice.

Griner is a 6-8 center who can play above the rim a bit, has a great post game, handles the ball, has decent range, blocks and rebounds. Basically, she's as dominant as they come in either men's or women's hoops.
