A poll of 38 draft picks selected in this summer’s NBA Draft reveals that the 2016 class has high praise for the three selections of the Phoenix Suns.

John Schuhmann of NBA.com completed the survey last month at the annual Rookie Photo Shoot in New York. Dragan Bender was drafted 4th overall, Marquese Chriss 8th, and Tyler Ulis 34th in June’s NBA Draft.

Chriss was chosen as among the most athletic players drafted. He ranked third after Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics and Brice Johnson of the Los Angeles Clippers.

When polled on who will have the most successful NBA career, Bender finished fourth. Rookies are highest on Brandon Ingram of the Los Angeles Lakers followed by Kris Dunn of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Buddy Hield of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Tyler Ulis was picked as the number two steal of the draft. Rookies felt Dejounte Murray was the top bargain, selected 29th overall by the San Antonio Spurs.

Fans will have their first opportunity to see the Suns’ impressive bunch in regular season action Wednesday, October 26th against the Sacramento Kings. Tip is scheduled for 7pm PT.
