The Phoenix Suns own the No. 22 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft and with a salary-capped roster have few avenues to improve their team.

There’s a heightened level of importance on either hitting on the pick or trading it for viable rotation players, though the latter is something the Suns cannot do until draft night on June 26.

Should they stick with the selection, there are plenty of positions and plenty of prospects who could give Phoenix a more dynamic roster around the Big Three of Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal.

The 2024 draft class is expected to be unpredictable from the jump without a clear No. 1 prospect. It could get crazy through the middle of the first round and beyond.

Up until the draft, we’ll be tracking mock drafts across the web to see what prospects are generally agreed upon as fits for the Suns. And we’ll likely get a sense of how many different players could be options at No. 22.

Below you’ll find a table of prospects and how many times a mock draft has paired them with Phoenix’s first-round pick. Below that is a running list of the mock drafts used in this exercise.
