The Phoenix Suns have really had a rough few seasons lately, and unfortunately that doesn't seem like it will end this season either. This year is going to be a rebuilding year as the Suns receive a new general manager, Ryan McDonough, new coach, Jeff Hornacek, and new defensive coach, Mike Longabardi. High hopes are being set by many fans that coaches will sacrifice some of the rookies Phoenix received from the draft and trade them for a more experienced player, but this idea could fall short as the new staff attempt to bulk up their lineup working with who they have.
Being a former Phoenix Sun, Hornacek is bound and determined to get this offense looking like it once did. This can be a difficult task for any team, but Hornacek has seemed to set some realistic goals for them. Back when he took the court (1988-1992), the team averaged 112 points per game throughout the season, while currently, that number is drastically lower at 96. Hornacek has promised that with a quicker offense, that number could rise to at least 103. Also, the nail biting news of power forward, Channing Frye, being out with heart problems has kept fans worried, but all is well as he was cleared by doctors to continue playing. This means, all eyes will be on him throughout the season to see how his medical issues are affecting him and his game.
Right hand man from Boston, Mike Longabardi will head the defensive side of the game. Unlike in Boston, Longabardi doesn't have much to work with. However, there is great potential in making Marcin Gortat a great center, but without the help of a solid front to their defense, the whole zone could collapse. At this point, Longabardi has his work cut out for him since the defense could use some bulking up, but there is a chance.
With the team on a rebuilding track, fans can expect a lot of moving around and figuring things out from the Suns. Phoenix definitely has their work cut out for them this season, but with their goal setting and great coaching, they will eventually get there.
