ANALYSIS: After losing much of their depth in the trade for Kevin Durant, it makes sense that Ross would choose the Suns since they are low on rotation players outside of their top four.
Ross should bring a scoring spark and could thrive efficiency-wise playing off Durant, Devin Booker, and Chris Paul. Previously, the Dallas Mavericks were reported as the front-runners to sign Ross, but the Suns swooped in and stole him away.
