This is a fair question as the team is full of players that are known for their offensive skills. Devin Booker, Bradley Beal, Kevin Durant, and Deandre Ayton are all known as offensive forces. Who will be the defensive stopper for Phoenix?

Can Josh Okogie be the stopper?

Last season Josh Okogie started 26 games during the regular season. Does he get a chance to gain that starting role back? The Suns have options for that fifth starter. They could go with an extra big line-up and start Bol Bol. They could go with more scoring and start Eric Gordon. Okogie provides a defensive intensity that the other options do not.

This video does a great job of showing what Okogie is capable of. These are the types of plays that can change a game. Momentum shifting plays are so important throughout a long season. Okogie’s energy and effort are contagious and will affect the Suns in a major way.

The fifth starter has to provide something to this line-up that has more than enough scoring. Okogie will provide the intensity and defense that is needed every night.
