NBA Rumors: Western Conference Team Frontrunners To Land Young Big Man


The Phoenix Suns are clearly loading up on offensive talent over the past few years to help them go all in and win their first NBA Championship, and after adding Bradley Beal by way of trade and several depth signings in free agency, it appears they're again ready to make a great depth pickup.

According to a recent report, the Suns are now considered the favourite to land former Denver Nuggets and Orlando Magic big man Bol Bol, who has achieved cult hero status with NBA audiences worldwide, but on the court, he's got plenty of potential on both ends of the floor.

The 23-year old had career highs across the board in 2022-23, playing in 70 games while averaging 21.5 minutes, scoring 9.1 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 1.0 APG, and after letting go of Jock Landale this off-season, he could serve as a solid backup big man if he lands in Phoenix.
