Locked On Suns Thursday: Why Kyrie Irving committing to Boston impacts Phoenix’s PG search, plus previewing the Blazers game

New, comments

Kyrie Irving announced he wants to remain a Celtic. Should the Suns roll the dice on Terry Rozier via trade?

On today’s episode, we discuss why Kyrie Irving announcing his intentions to remain in Boston directly impacts the Suns’ point guard search. With Marcus Smart also signed long-term with the Celtics, should General Manager Ryan McDonough get aggressive for Terry Rozier?

This discussion was a great segway into discussing the current situation on Phoenix’s roster. Who stood out most through two preseason games between Shaquille Harrison, Elie Okobo and De’Anthony Melton? Should Josh Jackson start in place of them instead, alongside Devin Booker on opening night?

Finally, we do a quick preview of Friday’s final preseason home game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Deandre Ayton has done great thus far, but he’s in for his first real challenge against Jusuf Nurkic. And will someone finally separate themselves in the point guard race, possibly even veteran journeyman Isaiah Canaan once he returns from a thumb injury?
