Much to the surprise of no one, James Jones surprised us all by drafting “Stix” Jalen Smith from Maryland with the 10th pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
We share our thoughts on the pick and why Phoenix Suns fans should not be freaking out about it (perhaps the name Cameron Johnson rings a bell). In addition we discuss:
- What drafting Stix could mean in terms of the Suns free agency targets, which starts Friday;
- The trade that brought Chris Paul to the Suns; and
- the team’s brand spanking new practice facility.
