Malik Monk takes #8 in the Phoenix Suns Fans Pick NBA Draft Big Board. Vote for #9 now!

Who will take the 9th spot?

NCAA Basketball: SEC Tournament-Kentucky vs Arkansas Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Sharp shooting Malik Monk gets on our Big Board at #8. Although Monk is also 8th in the Draft Express mock draft, I think he might have gotten picked a little higher on our Big Board if not for the fact that he plays the same position as Devin Booker. The Suns could use another sharp shooter like Monk but not enough to spend an early lotto pick on him when they have other needs to address.

Bright Side Fans Pick NBA Draft Big Board

1. Markelle Fultz

2. Josh Jackson

3. Dennis Smith Jr

4. De'Aaron Fox

5. Jonathan Isaac

6. Lonzo Ball

7. Jayson Tatum

8. Malik Monk

9. ???

And for today's poll I won't hazard a guess as to who the fans will pick for #9. Lauri Markkanen, Zach Collins and Frank Ntilikina were 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the previous poll but there was not a really a significant difference in the number of votes for the three for me to make any kind of prediction. The newest addition to the poll choices for today is Creighton center Justin Patton.

We will continue with the Fans Big Board polls until we get to #10.

Your selections for today are the 7th through 19th ranked players from Draft Express (minus Malik Monk and Dennis Smith who are ranked 8th & 9th respectively).

Bright Side Fans Pick NBA Draft Big Board Part 2

26. Bam Adebayo

27. Jordan Bell

28. Tony Bradley

29. Ivan Rabb

30. Derrick White

31. Isaiah Hartenstein

32. Terrance Ferguson

33. ???

On the first day of his first addition to the poll choices Terrance Ferguson is the fans' choice for #32. Ferguson is a 6'7" shooting guard that decided to play basketball in Australia instead of going to college in the US. His strong suit is as a spot up shooter. He elevates high off the ground, has a quick release point, is always on balance, and shoots it virtually the same every time... even with a hand in his face. He's not a great ball handler but a willing passer that will keep the ball moving if his shot isn't there. He's light on his feet with strong lateral quickness and is a good perimeter defender which the Suns could certainly use. He could turn into a very good NBA level 3-and-D man.

And now on to choosing #33.

The new addition to the choices for today is Villanova shooting guard Josh Hart who had his second workout with the Suns earlier today.
