2020 NBA Draft: Redrafting the top ten, pick No. 10

Isaac Okoro. 10. 66. Shooting Guard. Phoenix Suns. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. player

The Suns are THE surprise team of the NBA this season, as no one expected them to be fighting for the league’s best record, but here we are.

If they had to do it again, they would definitely choose a guy who is more ready to help them now, as the Suns are thinking title this season and would love to have more depth, especially on the defensive end.

They would definitely consider James Wiseman here, but they already have a very similar player in DeAndre Ayton.

Instead, they take the best perimeter defender in the draft in Isaac Okoro, who would be a nice complement to the perimeter players they already have. Who better to pair with Devin Booker than a guy who can defend anyone on the perimeter and doesn’t care about his offensive stats?

The Suns would have a lot of options here but Jalen Smith would probably not be one of them, as he has barely played and has made no meaningful impact for one of the NBA’s best teams.

The Suns are probably still high on his potential but title windows close quickly and they need someone who can play now.

The top ten of the 2020 NBA Draft would look a lot different if it were done today. Even if you don’t think all three of the rookies on the Detroit Pistons would go this high, they definitely would go higher than they did in the real thing.

Well done, Troy Weaver.
