Locked On Suns Thursday: New Year, new expectations for Ayton, Booker, Kokoskov

Looking at the progress made by the Suns’ core pieces after nearly a half season of development and how their floor and ceiling may have changed this year.

With 2019 officially upon us, we update our perspective on Deandre Ayton, Devin Booker and Igor Kokoskov, the core group for the Suns.

Ayton is picking up in the NBA where he left off in college, finishing over the top of defenses and imposing his physical will. Can he become a truly dominant rim protector or interior scorer?

Booker is more efficient and dishing more assists than ever, plus the Suns’ offense falls of a cliff without him. Is his ceiling higher than we thought heading into the season?

Kokoskov suffers from the rebuilding coach syndrome that so often results in a firing after a few seasons, but he’s made his impression felt on the team in a hurry. Can he stick around longer than the past few Phoenix coaches?
