Suns Sign All 3 Draft Picks; Chriss Will Play in Summer League
PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Suns say they have signed all three of their draft picks and the trio will participate in the Las Vegas Summer League.
The three are No. 4 overall pick Dragan Bender of Croatia, No. 8 overall pick Marquese Chriss of Washington and second-round pick Tyler Ulis of Kentucky, the 34th choice overall.
The 7-foot-1 Bender and 6-10 Chriss are just 18 years old. Both will be groomed to play the "stretch-forward" role, a power forward who can shoot from the perimeter.
The 5-10 Ulis has a shot at being the Suns' third point guard behind Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight.
