Default Phoenix has three first round picks this draft.

This is crazy, Phoenix has a lotto pick via ATL and two late first round picks. How much better could they be next season with three first round quality players on their team?

They should draft Brandon Wright, then trade the other picks for a veteran. I couldn't see those picks making them any better since they need help for the next 3 years while they're making their runs at the title. Brandon Wright will be able to help a little right now, plus once the team starts to build post-Nash he will be what they build around along with Amare and Barbosa.

They could be Kevin Garnett-better. If they were open to committing the money, anyhow. That could also get them Paul Pierce or Vince Carter but the Suns don't need more offense from the wings, they need a big that can play d, rebound, finish, and fit into their offensive system. Garnett and Marion together could even make them a good defensive frontcourt. And a starting five of Nash, Some SG, Marion, Stoudamire, and Garnett? An insane team.

I am saying they could package 2 of those pics together with one of their players to get a star....Someone even like a C or SG...., move Amare down to PF most games...Package 2 1st rounder with thomas....

For KG:

4th pick, Diaw, KT and Barbosa is realistic. They get Barbosa and the 4th pick, both which could be stars, Diaw who is great when he's not getting in Amare's way and a big expirer.

My less realistic idea is: Diaw, KT, Cavs pick, Suns pick, 4th pick, any other filler.

RMWG: Raja Bell would be the SG. He is a great defender and a great 3 point shooter who doesn't need the ball to be effective so he is exactly what that team would need.

I think it's top 3 protected by Atlanta. Even if they get the 4th or 5th pick that would still get them a great player since this draft had a lot of good players.

They'll be lucky to get that lotto pick but if they do they should go with harford. He would fit in nicely.

I'm pretty sure they'll trade the picks like they did last year but if they were to go with the draft they could get 3 solid players because of the depth of this draft.

they could try sending kurt thomas and banks along with some pick for gerald wallace. That would cut down on the cap.

Get Horford/Wright to help Marion at PF,and they'll be lucky if they get Law and Morris Almond/Afflalo.

They shouldn't draft players with those picks, but rather, package them for a superstar. My proposal:

Phoenix Trades:
Leandro Barbosa, Kurt Thomas, 3 first round picks

Indiana Trades:
Jermaine O Neal, Stephen Jackson/Jamaal Tinsley, 1 round pick 2008

Afflalo is a early to mid 2nd round pick at the very best.

Anyway, the Suns having three 1st round picks is crazy.
