Phoenix Suns' 2024 NBA draft odds: Tyler Kolek, Zach Edey favored to be picked at No. 22

CBS Sports: Suns select Marquette point guard Tyler Kolek at No. 22

Kyle Boone writes: "Phoenix is seemingly very interested in Tyler Kolek given his prolific college career and win-now skill set that could help with Kevin Durant in town. He's an elite distributor who plays a selfless style and has developed into a well-rounded offensive weapon as a scorer, too."

College Sports Wire: Suns pick Marquette point guard Tyler Kolek at No. 22

Andy Patton writes: "There is a lot of buzz about Kolek to Phoenix, and it’s not hard to see why. The Suns need a true point guard, a selfless floor general who can distribute the ball to score first players Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, and Bradley Beal, and Kolek is the exact type to handle that role. Kolek may not have the upside of some of the younger guards still on the board, but for a win now team in Phoenix – this is the perfect fit."

CBS Sports: Suns draft Baylor shooting guard Ja'Kobe Walter at No. 22

The Ringer: Suns take USC point guard Isaiah Collier at No. 22

Kevin O'Connor writes: "There probably isn’t a better landing spot for Collier than the Suns, even though ending up here would necessitate falling in the draft. Collier’s downhill attacking ability would flourish alongside Phoenix’s spacing."

Yahoo Sports: Suns land Marquette point guard Tyler Kolek at No. 22

Sports Illustrated: Suns take Baylor center Yves Missi at No. 22

Kevin Hicks writes: "The Suns' interest in Missi is now widely known. Phoenix takes a chance on the center as it is a huge need and Missi could very well be the best player available here."

CBS Sports: Suns pick Purdue center Zach Edey at No. 22

David Cobb writes: "Deciphering exactly how Edey will fit in the NBA will take some creativity. But he's an immensely gifted post scorer, and this would be a relatively low-pressure situation. If he can play some minutes as a backup big early for Phoenix, then great. But even if he proves too much of a defensive liability in the long run, there's no shame in taking a swing on the two-time Naismith winner."
