Coro: McDermott, Stauskas at top of Suns wish list

New, comments

While many of us would love a power forward in Phoenix, the Suns would apparently prefer having a shooter they can trust to make the shot.

Per Paul Coro, with azcentral.com/sport and the Arizona Republic, the Suns are focusing on shooters.

If those guys are gone, the Suns might turn to Rodney Hood (who has visited twice). Coro also mentions Elfrid Payton and the earlier-mentioned T.J. Warren.

"We don't draft on immediate need," Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough said. "We draft on whoever is going to have the best career. And it's a bonus if that guy can come in and play right away and still get better over the course of his career. Just because we were close to the playoffs, it's not like we're going to draft a guy just because he's able to play right away. I think that's where a lot of mistakes get made."

Coro also mentions Dario Saric in the mix as a draft-and-stash for two years, and then BSotS favorites Elfrid Payton and Adreian Payne after the shooter has been taken.
