Default recent draft history

The Suns haven't drafted anyone for 3 years, except Dijon thompson or thomas, i forget.

It would make the season more exciting to watch a rookie come in and contribute....The suns should be a lock to take the Pacific division, and with no bid signings or moves likely the only thing i'm really looking forward to is Amare returning.

Next year I think the Suns get Atlantas pick as long as it is not 1 or 2, am i right?

This would be great in a strong draft class.

For Gods sakes don't trade it for cash.

I think ATL's pick is top 3 protected next season, and they have another one that is top 10 protected as well I believe. Correct me if I am wrong.

I can see why in the past couple years, they haven't done much in the draft, but I really think they blew it this year. I just think when a player such as Marcus Williams falls into your lap at number 21, and that fills a void you have on your team, you take him. To me getting someone with talent to back up Nash was far more important than resigning Tim Thomas, who they made these moves for in the first place. We all saw how he repayed the Suns. Thomas becomes expendable with Amare returning. It would have been nice to have the depth or insurance, but I didn't see him a vital signing to the Suns this season, which they made priority. This is where the draft comes in. Trading away the chance to get Marcus for cheap until close to when Nash is older and almost off the books could've been big for them. The second pick they had I didn't really have a problem with, as far as them trading it away.

Next year should be different though, depending on how ATL's luck in the lottery is next season. The Suns could really pick someone who can make an impact on the team, and can free up the Suns to trade away a big contract in Marion if needs be.

I hope we get Brandan Wright next year I'm really intrigue by his athletizm and huge potential, he and Amare up front would form the most athletic/versatile frontcourt in the league and given the fact that next year draft will be loaded with athletic SF and PF we could take a 3 who could eventually become a starter or a 4 who coul backup Amare. We should get at least 2 studs next year.
