Okogie: "WHAT’S GOOD PHOENIX!"
The 23-year-old was the 20th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft out of Georgia Tech.
Prior to joining the Suns, he had spent his entire NBA career with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
He is a solid defender, but he fell out of the rotation in Minnesota and only played 10 minutes per game.
The Timberwolves lost in the first-round of the NBA Playoffs to the Memphis Grizzlies, while the Suns lost in the second-round of the playoffs to the Dallas Mavericks.
In 2021, the Suns made it all the way to the NBA Finals.
