NBA GM's Pick Suns to Finish Third in West

In an anonymous poll of general managers, NBA.com's results have Phoenix finishing third in the western conference.

The Phoenix Suns have accomplished quite a lot these last two years. 

A magical run to the NBA Finals followed by a record-setting regular season weren't enough to bring home a coveted trophy, and with virtually the same core heading into this year, the Suns still have high hopes. 

High how they will soar entirely depends on them, but a western conference that has seemingly only gotten tougher will truly test them in ways they haven't been previously. 

In a anonymous survey of NBA general managers conducted by NBA.com, the Suns were picked to finish third in the west, trailing the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors.

The Suns received just 3% of votes to finish in first place, with Golden State/LA matching each other with 48% to take home the top spot. 

Phoenix's percentage points climbed to 21% to finish in second place while they led all teams with 41% of votes to finish in third, more than any other squad in the conference.
