The Phoenix Suns selected Kansas guard Josh Jackson with the No. 4 pick of the NBA Draft on Thursday night.

Jackson is noted for being great in transition. He will join a Suns team that is incredibly young and will be looking to run with Devin Booker at the helm.

Jackson’s draft stock rose during the scouting combine. He can drive to the basket very well and is an above average defender. The Suns would definitely need to work with Jackson on his jump shooting.

Phoenix is pretty stacked with young talent and may make a trade during the offseason to get even younger.
