Although ratings are always subject to change before the game is released, it appears like the Suns will be joining the Golden State Warriors as the two top-rated teams in the game.
With the Phoenix Suns predicted to once again be among the top teams, we’ll have a look at each player’s potential ranking in NBA 2K23.
Phoenix Suns’ players predicted ratings in NBA 2K23
We’ll now do the rating predictions for each of the Suns’ players currently signed for next season.
Devin Booker – 91
There is no way the game could feature a cover athlete with a rating under 90. Last year, Booker made progress as a defender, and he will undoubtedly be recognized as the top-rated Sun once more.
Chris Paul – 88
Paul’s performance has been slightly downgraded, although, given his age, it is not entirely unexpected. Last year, the 37-year-old led the NBA in assists, but his scoring and particularly his three-point shooting declined.
Deandre Ayton – 87
Ayton enjoyed his most productive NBA season to date in 2021–22 despite all the debates surrounding his playing future. The 24-year-old is currently the third-highest rated player on the Suns after re-signing with them.
Mikal Bridges – 85
Bridges also had a great year last year, playing in every game during the regular season and the playoffs while averaging 14.2 points per game. Expect a minor increase in rating from his 83 in NBA 2K22 as compensation for his development.
Cameron Johnson – 83
The 26-year-old Johnson advances marginally each season, similar to Ayton and Bridges. Due to being rated 81 overall in 2K22, anticipate an increase here as well.
Jae Crowder – 76
A tough-minded two-way forward offers experience and leadership, and Crowder has been a player quite similar to this for a while. His rating should be roughly the same as that of earlier 2K iterations.
Landry Shamet – 75
Shamet’s statistics from the previous season and those during his time with the Brooklyn Nets in 2020–21 are quite similar. Because of this, anticipate that his 2K rating will remain at or near the same level.
Cameron Payne – 75
This represents a minor decline for Payne, who had a poor scoring season that led to his benching toward the end of the playoffs.
Dario Saric – 74
Saric may, unfortunately, and probably unfairly, experience a modest rating decline after sitting out the entire previous season while healing from an ACL injury.
Bismack Biyombo – 73
Last season, Biyombo experienced somewhat of a comeback with the Suns, establishing himself as an important backup big. As a result, he might experience a slight increase in his 2K rating.
Torrey Craig – 73
Craig is a significant defensive presence with limited offensive potential, thus anticipate him to have a rating similar to 2K22.
Damion Lee – 73
The Warriors used the recently acquired Sun occasionally last season, but he was primarily not part of their playoff rotation. The 29-year-old should once again receive a comparable rating.
Josh Okogie – 71
Okogie, another recently acquired Sun, spent his final season with the Minnesota Timberwolves playing the least minutes of his four-year career. Despite being only 23 years old, he still has potential, but for the time being, his ranking will remain low.
Jock Landale – 70
The Australian is now posing as a reliable stretch big option for the Suns after showing some promise for the San Antonio Spurs last season. He hasn’t accomplished enough at the NBA level, though, to merit a rise in ratings.
These ratings represent an evenly distributed Suns roster, though that might alter at any point as the team works to make improvements as the offseason goes on.
