Here's the Suns' Best New Weapon According to B/R – Sports Illustrated

When it comes to new arrivals, the Phoenix Suns don't have a wealth of viable options who could turn up the nob on their chances to win a title. 
Jock Landale figures to be a rotational piece behind center Deandre Ayton, guard Damion Lee offers an interesting scoring dynamic coming off the bench, and forward Josh Okogie makes his dough on the defensive side of the court. 
When it comes to asking who could be Phoenix's best new weapon, Bleacher Report believes it's Okogie:
"It'd be a stretch to label this summer as a snoozer for the Phoenix Suns. They gave Devin Booker a supermax, matched a max offer sheet for Deandre Ayton and played a prominent role in the Kevin Durant trade talks," said Zach Buckley.
"As far as external acquisitions go, though, there wasn't much brewing on that front. They signed Damion Lee away from the defending champion Warriors, landed Jock Landale in a trade and took a flier on Josh Okogie.
"There isn't an obvious pick for the top newcomer, but Okogie has the most obvious standout skill (suffocating defense) and therefore probably the clearest path to regular rotation minutes. He also has the most glaring weakness (anything related to scoring), but perhaps playmakers like Booker and Chris Paul can coax more production out of him."

Okogie signed a one-year deal with the Suns worth $1.83 million in the offseason. In 49 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves last season, Okogie averaged 2.7 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 10.5 minutes per night.
