Locked On Suns Monday: Liberty Ballers’ Jackson Frank on Dario Saric, the draft, and building out the Suns’ defense

Jackson comes on to break down Saric’s fit next to Deandre Ayton, the Suns’ draft-day valuations, and more.

We are joined by Jackson Frank, whose work you can find at Liberty Ballers as well as The Athletic and FanSided, to discuss the fallout from draft night as we are now less than a week from free agency.

Jackson gives his thoughts on Dario Saric as a floor-spacer and playmaker at the 4 spot next to Deandre Ayton and how the duo might fare on defense. Plus, did the 76ers move on from Saric because they didn’t want him, or just because Jimmy Butler was available?

The Suns’ draft gets a negative evaluation from Jackson, but we dive into what the upside is of getting two smart players who can drill 3s, even if the defense might be limited.

Finally, rapid-fire free agency thoughts on Kelly Oubre Jr.’s place on this roster and who could be available at point guard that fits this new-look Suns roster.
