GM Ryan McDonough confirmed that French guard Elie Okobo will be with the Suns next season.
It was thought that Okobo might take another year in Europe but that's not the case. An explosive combo guard, his draft stock had risen in the recent weeks to the point where Okobo was expected to be drafted in the first round. The Suns got a nice little value pick by taking him at No. 31, and it's possible that he's in line for a real role as a rookie. He's a longshot for fantasy value but is definitely a name to remember for deeper leagues.
