19. Phoenix Suns - Kevin McCullar Jr., G, Kansas

Without much money to spend heading into the offseason, the Phoenix Suns will likely have to use either the trade market or their first-round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft as their biggest tool towards adding more talent ahead of the start of next season. With this potential selection, Kevin McCullar Jr. out of Kansas could be an intriguing prospect for the Suns to take a flyer on.

As one of the most experienced and productive players in college basketball this past season, McCullar Jr. is the type of ready-now prospect that the Suns should be looking for late in the first round. Whether or not McCullar Jr. will end up being a player who could play immediately for the Suns remains to be seen, but he is one of the best candidates to fit into that type of role in this year's class.

The Suns will be in search of depth this offseason, and if they could find some quality players this summer, this is a team that could bounce back in a big way next season. Perhaps McCullar Jr. could be part of their reloading process.
