07:04 AM ET 06.07 | Jeff Hornacek, who was evaluating prospects at workouts this week, may be just what the Suns need. An impressive steadiness defines Hornacek. There is confidence without raging ego. He knew exactly what he was looking for Wednesday. "Competitors," he said. "You want guys who fight and scratch and dive on the floor." ... Among those participating was Indiana junior Victor Oladipo, who deserves to be near the top of the Suns' list. "On the last shooting drill we did," Hornacek said, "he wanted to do it one more time." The 6-foot-4 shooting guard made a strong impression in his media session, too. He was forthright, eager and thoughtful. "I think I could fit in (with the Suns) real well," he said. "It's up-tempo here."

This guy is probably one of the safest picks in the lottery IMO. He is a good defender already. If they play uptempo it would work great for him. You have a guy that will be able to defend the 2 and some of the 3's very well, can slash to the rim and finish. I don't know if he will ever be a go to scorer but if you can find a starter that is good enough call it a win. He has the chance to be a Deng type or Tony Allen type
