The 2020 NBA Draft is approaching and the Phoenix Suns will look to add another intriguing prospect to its core. Could sharpshooter Tyrell Terry be a potential option with the No. 10 pick?
Based on new information from Bryan Kalbrosky of Rookie Wire, the Phoenix Suns have interviewed Tyrell Terry twice. That only adds to the intrigue regarding the possibility of the former Stanford standout being selected by the team that resides in the desert.
According to a person with knowledge of the situation who spoke to USA TODAY Sports Media Group on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter, Terry already has interviewed with the organization twice. His IQ for the game is off the charts, and alongside star guard Devin Booker, the two offensive juggernauts potentially can create their own version of Golden State’s Splash Brothers.
Much earlier in the year, Terry was originally thought of as being a second-round pick because of his undersized frame. His stock has seemingly skyrocketed since measuring in at 6-foot-3 and weighing near 175 pounds— rising all the way to NBA Draft Lottery in many projections.
For the Suns, they’ve already shown a willingness to take a chance on NBA Draft prospects that other teams don’t have nearly as high on their board. The greatest example of this was the selection of Cameron Johnson with the No. 11 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
That’s precisely why in my latest NBA Mock Draft it has Terry being selected by the Suns with the No. 10 selection. The strange adjustment that Devin Vassell made to his shooting mechanics could prompt Phoenix to look into selecting Terry.
The other guards in this NBA Draft class lack the catch-and-shoot shoot ability that Tyrell Terry possesses. In addition, he has a legitimate playmaking upside and has made strides in his shot creation working with his NBA skills trainer
