Locked On Suns Wednesday: Third-quarter stock reports

Monitoring the progress of #TheTimeline over the last 24 games.

On today’s episode, we dove deep on the key players in #TheTimeline, stock report style, as we have throughout the season.

The last quarter encompasses 24 games, in which the Suns went 3-21. However, many of the young players made legitimate progress despite not winning many games at all.

Devin Booker has turned into one of the more consistent and efficient scorers in the NBA during his age-21 season.

Elfrid Payton has changed the rhythm of this team completely since joining at the trade deadline. Since his arrival, the Suns’ pace is nearly three possessions higher per game.

Josh Jackson slowed way down in January and February, and he has become an effective two-way player thanks to a ton of in-season improvement.

T.J. Warren returned to his inconsistent ways, thanks in some part to injury and a change of role. How do we feel about his extension going forward?

Dragan Bender is on his way to becoming an elite two-way role player. Is that a ceiling we can accept for the former No. 4 overall pick?

Finally, we looked at the coaching situation heading into the offseason. With March Madness coming up and Luka Doncic lingering at the top of the draft, where should the Suns’ coach come from?
