Locked On Suns Tuesday: Deandre Ayton dominates in preseason opener

Even though the Suns lost to the Kings, Deandre Ayton looked the part of a No. 1 pick. Also, other notes from the game.

On today’s episode, Evan and Brendon recorded live from Talking Stick Resort Arena after the Suns’ loss to the Kings in their preseason opener. There are plenty of things to go over from Monday’s action.

Not only did Deandre Ayton flash great moments on both ends, even being fed down the stretch cutting Sacramento’s lead, but Josh Jackson’s budding playmaking ability might have found the perfect match with head coach Igor Kokoskov. We pose the question of whether Phoenix should start Devin Booker and Jackson in their backcourt instead.

Also, what’s going wrong with Dragan Bender? After another disastrous performance, just how crucial is this month-long stretch for his career? The Suns have to pick up or decline his fourth-year team option soon, so what do we think they will do?
