6. Josh Okogie will be one of the best under-the-radar defenders available

The Phoenix Suns definitely turned in quite the memorable season for themselves. After forming a vaunted Big Three filled with three of the most lethal individual scorers in the NBA, the Timberwolves’ stingy defense ensured that their star-studded team will be an early bird in the loser’s lane, sending them packing int he first-round via a clean sweep.

Heck, the Suns are already on the verge of hitting the panic button, with whispers of Kevin Durant not being happy already commencing. That being said, a roster turnover will definitely be on the works, especially on the margins where Phoenix simply looked too shallow to be a consistent threat.

Enter Josh Okogie, who somehow fell out of former coach Frank Vogel’s favor despite a great start to the season as their designated backcourt defender. Okogie is someone the 76ers could really have a use for as he could fill in the defensive hole that could be left by the potentially outgoing De’Anthony Melton for only a fraction of his price tag.
