Alan Williams

Update: N/A

Analysis: While Williams' contract for the 2016-17 season isn't guaranteed as of yet, the $874,636 he's owed fully vests if he remains on the roster after Sept. 1. Williams, a 6-foot-8 big man, was a First-Team All-Summer League performer for the Suns earlier this month, averaging 11.8 points and 11.2 rebounds across six games. Even if he does make the Suns' roster, Williams is unlikely to be a meaningful contributor on a night-to-night basis, especially if centers Tyson Chandler and Alex Len are able to stay healthy.

Devin Booker

Update: N/A

Analysis: The Suns held Booker out following pool play, but it was evident over even the small, three-game sample that he was among the best players in Vegas. Booker connected on 6-of-10 three-point attempts and led Phoenix to wins over Portland and Boston before donning street clothes for the remainder of the week. Ultimately, it's difficult to take anything definitive away from summer league play, but Booker certainly looked the part of a player ready to make another leap in Year 2.

Jon Leuer

Update: N/A

Analysis: The 27-year-old big man will add another viable option to the Pistons' front court. Leuer enjoyed his best statistical season as a reserve last season, averaging 8.5 points and 5.6 rebounds over 18.7 minutes per game. He'll likely have a similar role in Detroit where he can stretch the floor with the second unit. He shot 38.2 percent from three point range in 2016, the second best mark in his career.

Eric Bledsoe

Update: N/A

Analysis: Bledsoe's 2015-16 season came to an end after he suffered a torn left meniscus on Dec. 26 that required surgery, but he began rehabbing the injury a few months afterward and has continued to make incremental progress in his recovery in the months that followed. The point guard has already gone through this rigorous process before, having previously tore his right meniscus in 2011 before ultimately having it removed in 2014. The knee problems make Bledsoe more of a health risk than most other point guards, but if he endures no further setbacks throughout the summer, he should reemerge as one of the league's more athletic players at his position entering the coming season. He was on his way to career-best numbers before getting shut down, posting averages of 20.4 points, 6.1 assists and 2.0 steals in 31 games.

T.J. Warren

Update: N/A

Analysis: Warren's second NBA season came to an end in early February, when he was diagnosed with a broken mid-right foot that required surgery. Though he's only recently started running, Warren is expected to be at full strength by the time training camp arrives. Warren was unable to permanently unseat P.J. Tucker as the Suns' starting small forward last season, but the 22-year-old should have a better chance at climbing up the depth chart in 2016-17. Prior to going down with the season-ending injury, Warren showed some growth as a scorer, averaging an impressive 11.0 points on 50.1 percent shooting from the floor in just 22.8 minutes per game.

P.J. Tucker

Update: N/A

Analysis: Tucker finished the season with six double-digit scoring efforts in the last eight games, and with double-digit boards in four of those contests. The five-year veteran provided some surprising offensive contributions at times this season, but also turned in multiple scoreless efforts. His work on the glass remained solid however, as managed to play in at least 80 contests for the second time in the last three seasons. He finishes his fourth season in Phoenix with averages of 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.2 blocks across 31.0 minutes, while starting 80 of 82 games.

Alan Williams

Update: N/A

Analysis: The undrafted rookie center turned in career highs across the board, collecting his first double-double in the process. With a multi-year contract in hand, Williams figures to have much more opportunity next season to acclimate to the pro game. He finishes his rookie season with averages of 2.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.5 blocks and 0.4 steals across 6.8 minutes.

Jon Leuer

Update: N/A

Analysis: The 25-year-old, in and out of the lineup in the last couple of weeks with an ankle injury, finishes the season with consecutive double-doubles. Although he received the starting nod at the four Wednesday, Leuer garnered only 20 minutes of playing time, making his line all the more impressive. The five-year veteran made solid scoring contributions and was a force on the glass at times as well throughout his first season in Phoenix, but now faces an uncertain future given his status as a free agent. Leuer finished the 2015-16 campaign with career-high averages of 8.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.4 blocks and 0.6 steals across 18.7 minutes per game.

Mirza Teletovic

Update: N/A

Analysis: The five-year veteran closed out the season with a stellar stretch of five consecutive 20-point-plus performances off the bench, and six in his last seven games. Teletovic also drained multiple threes in seven straight to finish up the campaign, serving as an invaluable source of scoring on the Suns' second unit. His solid play in the latter stages of a lost season for Phoenix seems likely to garner the 30-year-old multiple suitors in the offseason.

Tyson Chandler

Update: N/A

Analysis: Chandler continues to deal with concussion symptoms and failed to be cleared through the league's protocol, so he'll conclude the regular season with his second consecutive absence. In his first year with the Suns, the 33-year-old averaged 7.2 points and 8.7 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game, all three of which are his lowest marks since the 2009-10 season. Expect to see more of Alex Len in Chandler's place Wednesday.
