As one of the final moves of a busy offseason, the Phoenix Suns added 6-foot-9 forward Cheick Diallo. Diallo spent the past three seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans.

One season removed from a 19-63 finish, Phoenix Suns general manager James Jones decided it was time to make serious changes within the organization.

That culminated into a complete overhaul of the roster, with only six players returning from last season. But sometimes addition can be made by subtraction.

Those additions included Ricky Rubio, Cameron Johnson and Dario Saric, to name a few. In all, the Suns upgraded multiple positions, while adding depth to their 15-man roster.

One of those moves included the Suns signing forward Cheick Diallo to a two-year deal, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 33rd overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft, Diallo struggled to find his niche in New Orleans. With a change of scenery, the hope is that Diallo can build off from a successful past year. He averaged career bests in points, rebounds and field goal percentage.

Here are three biggest positives of the Suns adding Diallo to their roster.
