16. Phoenix Suns - Robert Dillingham, G, Kentucky

After the decision to go all-in on winning the 2024 NBA Championship, the Phoenix Suns have one of the most top-heavy rosters in the league. Hitting on their first-round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft will go a long way in solidifying their supporting core around Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, and Bradley Beal. Looking for somewhat of a more natural point guard could be the route that the Suns elect to take.

Robert Dillingham could be a fit for the Suns in the middle of the first round. Through the first few games of his freshman season at Kentucky, Dillingham is averaging 14 points, five assists, and four rebounds per game on 48 percent shooting from the field and 50 percent shooting from 3-point range.

He's already proving to be an effective scorer and playmaker through the first few games of his career at Kentucky and as he continues to grow as a prospect, he's only going to make a rise up the draft boards. He's a name to keep an eye on and could very well climb his way into the lottery.
