Phoenix also had to give up Cam Johnson (pictured) whose sweet hitting from outside gave holes to opposing teams. He joins Yuta Watanabe, the NBA’s leading shooter this year, Joe Harris and Seth.h Curry in a stretched Brooklyn offense that can pour it in from anywhere on the floor. Since recovering from a torn meniscus he suffered in early November, Johnson is shooting 45.6 percent from downtown, the fourth highest rate in the league.

However, one of the newest Suns, Damion Lee, has signed with Phoenix after spending the last four years with the Warriors and thriving in his current role. Steph Curry’s brother-in-law is currently the NBA’s third-most efficient long-range shooter in the league, and he’s doing just enough to make the younger Cam Johnson throwaway in the short term.

A year ago, the Suns fell short in the regular season in the postseason. Despite Devin Booker missing half the season, the Suns are still in position to get a top 3 pick. But Kevin Durant raises the playoff ceiling.
