In Las Vegas Summer League play, Jackson showed off his skills by chasing down blocked shots, by moving gracefully with (and without) the ball and in attacking the rim.
The Suns last season were essentially a batch of young players and none were consistently decent except Booker and, at times, former first-round pick TJ Warren.
What makes that particularly sobering considering his competition is old man Tyson Chandler, who averaged more minutes and almost grabbed twice as many rebounds as Len last season.
Kyrie Irving’s expressed desire to leave the Cavaliers made him attractive to the Suns, one of the few teams who could offer a package of young players and assets to entice Cleveland.
It does raise an interesting question: Is Phoenix putting too much stock into an unproven rookie over the chance to pair Irving with Booker and form one of the league’s dynamic backcourts?
