12. DeAndre Ayton
Devin Booker is the Suns’ star but Ayton is another redeeming factor. Phoenix has almost no chance of making it to the postseason, but the bright side is that their young stars are raring to go. The NBA suspended Ayton for 25 games from the start of the season but he has been excellent since January.
Ayton was a massive loss for the Suns because he’s a superb foil for Booker. He isn’t quite at the same level as his teammate but he’s definitely improving in leaps and bounds. In short, it’s all about improving the on-court chemistry between Ayton and Booker before next season.
