The Phoenix Suns had a great 2021-22 regular season, before crashing hard in the playoffs. There’s plenty of reason to expect a quality next regular season as well. Here’s the Arizona Republic one Suns change we may see:

Suns fans will see more of Mikal Bridges running the point this season.

He won’t just be on the wing sticking threes, slashing to the paint to finish plays, blocking shots or on the island defending against their opponent’s top scorers.

After Bridges was last season’s Defensive Player of the Year runner-up to Celtics’ Marcus Smart, Suns coach Monty Williams wants to add more responsibilities to Bridges and his so-called “twin,” Cam Johnson, who’s also starting at the four spot to replace Jae Crowder, to occasionally initiate the offense.

Williams wants to them to manage that duty with primary ball handler Chris Paul to take the load off him bringing the ball up the floor.
