Locked On Suns Friday: Early expectations for the Suns’ rookies in 2019-20

What can we expect from Cam Johnson, Ty Jerome and Jalen Lecque in their first season with the Suns?

We break down a few guys who won’t get much attention once we start previewing the season — the rookies. And that lack of attention is a good thing! It’s all part of the plan. If all goes well, we won’t be hearing much from Cam Johnson, Ty Jerome and Jalen Lecque, so we dove in on each of them today.

Johnson is in line to be a candidate for backup wing minutes alongside Mikal Bridges until the Suns find a permanent second unit. Can he defend enough to stay on the court?

Jerome brings many of the same questions. How will he hold up physically against NBA athletes, and are there any minutes for him while Tyler Johnson is still around?

Lecque is the first test case for how James Jones will use the G League. What does a successful season look like for the Brewster Academy product?
