On today’s episode of Locked On Suns, Evan and Brendon threw on the debate gloves once more. This time around, instead of Luka Doncic vs. Deandre Ayton, we have two polarizing prospects in Suns circles.

Who is the better prospect for the Suns, if they land outside the top two? Is it Jaren Jackson Jr. or Marvin Bagley III who would fit general manager Ryan McDonough’s plans best?

We took deep dives on Jackson Jr. and Bagley III, including from an advanced metrics point of view.

Which one fits best alongside Devin Booker and Josh Jackson? Also, how do both bigs fit into the modern-day NBA?

Find that out, plus a lot more on two players barely separated on their big boards.
