Locked On Suns Monday: Gina Mizell of The Athletic on covering her hometown team, the Suns’ underrated offseason, and filling out the roster

Gina joins the show fresh off her first year on the Suns beat to talk about her memories from year one and what comes next for the Suns.

We are joined by Gina Mizell, The Athletic’s Suns beat writer, to discuss covering her hometown NBA team and much more after a crazy year in Phoenix.

Gina also gives her perspective on the Suns’ offseason. Why was it underrated? How does she value Kelly Oubre Jr.? Is Ricky Rubio going to finally solve the point guard woes? What can we expect from Deandre Ayton in his second season?

We close the show by recapping the latest flurry of moves by the Suns, including signing former Pelicans big man Cheick Diallo to a two-year contract, giving a two-way deal to Auburn guard Jared Harper, and adding Tariq Owens on a non-guaranteed training camp deal.
