The Suns have two first round picks, but that may not be enough to satisfy them in the upcoming draft. General Manager Ryan McDonough spoke openly about exploring the addition of another first-round pick beyond their No. 5 and No. 30 slots, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
“We’ve talked to a few teams about getting in the draft at different ranges,” McDonough said. “We have good assets to do that. We have to evaluate all of these guys, figure out where they’re going to go. And then if we can get in at a particular range where a guy is undervalued, we’ll try to get in and get him there.”
The Suns are still doing their homework on the No. 5 pick and recently spoke with UNLV forward Anthony Bennett. Bennett was unable to workout for the club, however, thanks to a rotator cuff injury.
