Locked On Suns Thursday: A deep dive on the Suns at the halfway point

We cover everything from team expectations, individual benchmarks, plus the relationship between James Jones and Monty Williams.

At the halfway point of the 2019-20 season, the Phoenix Suns are 16-24. That shouldn’t be surprising based on preseason expectations, but how they reached that mark has certainly been like a rollercoaster.

At this point, are the Suns contenders or pretenders for the No. 8 seed race?

Devin Booker has taken another step forward in Year 5, but what about everyone else? Kelly Oubre Jr. and Deandre Ayton are solid pieces, but Phoenix needs to invest in another self-creator sometime soon.

We close by going over the dynamic between James Jones and Monty Williams, including grades just less than a year into their partnership.
