The Phoenix Suns have a jam-packed promotional schedule this year, highlighted by three different bobbleheads. One features Deandre Ayton in his unique draft suit.
Outside of the point guard position and Devin Booker‘s injury, fans and supporters of the Phoenix Suns have a lot to be excited about this year. While training camp just started, we’re less than a month away from the start of the regular season. The team is hopeful, the front office is hopeful, and as fans, the consensus seems to be the same.

As the clock ticks down to opening night on October 17th, it’s about time to take care of the fun stuff that comes with preseason. You know, you could snag a new jersey from one of the Suns’ recent additions or get something to build up your Arizona-themed man cave. Or maybe you want to invest in the team by picking them to win more than 28.5 games. All of them are intriguing and now is definitely the time to start putting them in motion.
Another idea, maybe the most important, is getting yourself ready to see the Suns play live. If you live outside of the area, you’ll need to find a game you like and plan around it. For local folks, maybe you want to see a few games. Either way, you need to peek at the giveaway schedule because they’re offering some awesome freebies this year.
Promotion-wise, three games jump off the screen because they’re giving away a different bobblehead each night to the first 5,000 fans.
On January 2nd, with Joel Embiid coming to town, fans will have the opportunity to seize a Deandre Ayton bobblehead. This one is really special because it features him in his suit from the 2018 NBA Draft. You know, the one with the Bahamian flag. If Ayton lives up to potential, the item could be really valuable since they’re only making 5,000.
A month later on February 4th, Phoenix is giving away a Josh Jackson bobblehead — likely featuring his new haircut — when the Houston Rockets come to town. A solid opponent for a solid giveaway.
Finally, the final bobblehead of the year belongs to Devin Booker. His will be given away on March 30th with a less prominent opponent coming to town, the Memphis Grizzlies. From a business standpoint, this makes sense because Memphis is a hard sell to fans. With a Devin Booker bobblehead, however, this will be a hot ticket around Phoenix.
Other notable giveaways include a trendy t-shirt for the home opener (first 15,000 fans), a drawstring bag on October 31st (first 5,000 fans) and a rally towel on January 24th (first 5,000 fans).
