We finish up our annual trimester report cards looking at the first third of the Suns’ season by breaking down the performance of Cameron Johnson, Mikal Bridges and Aron Baynes.
The two young wings are sitting wasted on a broken bench, while Baynes has a chance to revitalize that bench when Deandre Ayton returns this week.
We discuss how Johnson can be better in small ball lineups while Bridges’ usage is a continuing concern regardless of his three-point percentage, as well as how Baynes’ defense can help him overcome regression from deep.
As always, it’s a heavy mix of stats and observations, with grades for each player. Dive in!
