Locked On Suns Thursday: Previewing the Sweet 16 draft prospects

The third round of the NCAA tournament tips off later today, so we take a look at the prospects who will be playing this weekend.

On today’s episode, in anticipation of the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight this weekend, we broke down all the first-round prospects to watch as the Suns mull their options with likely three first-round picks this June.

Marvin Bagley III and Wendell Carter Jr. at Duke have cemented themselves in the top 10, but which fits better in Phoenix? Which is a better overall prospect? How does Mikal Bridges fit into the mix at the end of the top 10, and can he do anything this weekend to raise his stock?

Additionally, Zhaire Smith and Texas Tech play Purdue tomorrow night, and Smith has an opportunity to vault even higher into the first-round after nearly posting a triple-double in the second round against Florida.

Which of these guys would you trade up for?
