Phoenix has made the changes they need to become competitive and trading Steve Nash was just the tip of the iceberg as the NBA franchise looks to rebuild with youth and athleticism.
Marc Stein of ESPN has reported that the Suns are looking at O.J. Mayo as the team won't likely get Eric Gordon to join the team. Mayo would give Phoenix the outside shooter they need and a player that can handle the load offensively.
The former first round pick averaged over 18 points per game as a starter with the Memphis Grizzlies, but those numbers dropped after a move to the bench. Phoenix will likely add Mayo as their starting shooting guard and his numbers should increase back to those of his first two seasons in the NBA.
Phoenix has already added young talent at point guard and small forward and adding a shooting guard like Mayo would give this team a great foundation of youth to build around and with multiple draft choices over the next couple of seasons, this team could become a power very quickly in the Western Conference.
