The Phoenix Suns have worked hard to overhaul a roster that won just 25 games last season.

And to their credit, most people think new general manager Ryan McDonough and head coach Jeff Hornacek have done a good job.

However, that does not mean the Suns are projected to get back into the postseason for the first time since 2010.

In fact, ESPN.com's Kevin Pelton, in an Insider piece, ranked the Suns 15th -- in the Western Conference -- in his July Power Rankings.

After years of resisting, the Suns finally committed to a rebuild during last season. Dealing for Eric Bledsoe and drafting Alex Len improves the team's talent, which was rated dead last in Insider's most recent Future Power Rankings.

For now, though, Len is coming back from surgery on both ankles, and Bledsoe will play with Goran Dragic in the backcourt. Phoenix is the odds-on favorite to finish last in the Western Conference and add another talented prospect to the core in next year's draft.

While no fan really wants to see their team be terrible, there are some who believe there will be franchise-altering players available in next year's draft, so being able to select one would not be a bad consolation prize.
