The Denver Nuggets won the championship last season and a big part of that was the production they got off of the bench. Bruce Brown averaged 11.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game. Brown also shot 48% from the floor and 35% from the three point range.

This is the type of player that could fit into the Suns rotation perfectly. He can play the point guard, shooting guard and small forward positions. Brown can also run the offense for the second unit while being an outlet for the starters.

Brook Lopez

The Milwaukee Bucks finished the regular season with the best record in the eastern conference last year. A huge part of their success was Brook Lopez. Lopez averaged 16 points and 2.5 blocks per game. The rim protection that was provided by Lopez helped Milwaukee have the fourth best defensive rating in the NBA.

Lopez shot 53% from the floor and 37% from three last season. At this stage of his career, Lopez would be the ultimate back-up center for Phoenix. The rim protection and three point shooting would be exactly what the Suns need.

This was part two of the series. Here is part one if you missed it.
