Is Bol Bol the Answer for the Suns?

There are four locked in starters for the Phoenix Suns, so who will be the fifth guy?

In July, the Phoenix Suns acquired the former Denver Nugget and Orlando Magic forward, Bol Bol. Bol spent last season with the Orlando Magic. He started 33 games and played in a total of 70. The second generation NBA player averaged  9.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game, while shooting 54% from the floor.

The word potential is synonymous with Bol Bol at this point. The 7’2″ power forward has guard skills to go along with his lengthy frame.

Can you imagine a starting line-up with Bradley Beal, Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, Bol Bol, and DeAndre Ayton? If Bol Bol is able to handle his assignments on the defensive end. This line-up would be deadly with their length, inside and outside scoring.

Adding Bol Bol to the starting line-up would be equally beneficial to Bol and the other starters.

Bol shot 26% from behind the three point line last season. Which is not good enough but playing along side Beal, Durant, and Booker would improve Bol’s shot quality immensely.

Bol would also add extra shot blocking to the line-up and take some of the defensive responsibility off of Durant’s plate.

Phoenix would have the most unique starting line-up in the NBA and Bol would live up to his potential.
