Bazley’s role decreased with the Thunder this year after he averaged 10.8 ppg, 6.3 rpg and 1.4 apg in 2021-22 to 5.4 ppg and 3.4 rpg this season. Saric has been a vital reserve for the Suns in 2020-21, but has been slow to regain his old form after suffering an ACL injury in the 2021 NBA Finals. He is averaging 5.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg and 1.5 apg this season.
