The 2016 NBA Draft is over and the Phoenix Suns made some serious noise.

Owen Sanborn joined me to discuss all the happenings. We jumped all over the place, with topics including:

  • Phoenix being one of the big winners of draft night
  • The value of trading up for Marquese Chriss
  • What we will be watching for when Dragan Bender and Chriss play together
  • Our questions about Bender and Chriss as players on the perimeter
  • The potential juicy matchup against the Boston Celtics at summer league
  • How Tyler Ulis fits and how much of an impact Earl Watson could have in his growth
  • What we thought of the Bledsoe and Knight reports
  • How what the Suns are doing is much different than what the Oklahoma City Thunder and Orlando Magic did with their blockbuster trade involving Serge Ibaka
  • Ryan McDonough
  • Should we expect Bender and Chriss playing in their rookie years?
  • What the selections mean for the Suns' plans in free agency
  • Where fans' patience levels should be at
