Is There Reason to Worry about Jusuf Nurkić’s Slow Start to the Season? – Burn City Suns Talk

Nurkić is averaging 9.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks but only shooting 37% from the floor and 23.8% from three-point range.

Fans have started to question if he really is a better fit than Deandre Ayton on the Suns.

Our Brendan Mau and Damian Adams addressed these concerns on yesterday’s episode of the Burn City Suns Talk Podcast.
