Locked On Suns Friday: The challenges of falling to No. 6 in the draft with Chris Stone of Sporting News

Chris joins the show to talk about why he prefers trading the sixth pick based on where the Suns fell on lottery night.

We continue with our draft coverage by picking the brain of Chris Stone of Sporting News.

We begin by discussing the value of analytics in evaluating NBA draft prospects and which numbers are predictive and helpful compared with other less useful statistics.

Then, Chris gives his thoughts on players like Jarrett Culver, Coby White, Cam Reddish and Darius Garland who could be available at No. 6.

Finally, the Suns’ options at No. 32 and who Chris would consider a “sleeper” this year, plus whether the Suns would consider trading up based on James Jones’ comments Thursday.
