Suns look for "best player" in unpredictable draft

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- There's no doubt who is the top pick today. But after Blake Griffin of Oklahoma goes to the Los Angeles Clippers, the 2009 draft is a big guessing game.

And that leaves the Phoenix Suns with an uncomfortable air of uncertainty as to who will be around when they make the 14th selection overall.

Suns vice president of basketball operations David Griffin says that, uncharacteristically, there are marked differences of opinion among team officials in evaluating the available talent.

If there's a split vote, the deciding tally will come from general manager Steve Kerr.

With the Phoenix roster a mix of old and relatively young, the Suns won't be looking to fill a position of need -- Griffin says they'll simply go for the best player available at the 14th pick.
