We're a few games into the NBA Summer League, and the dust has mostly settled on moves that will happen in the league. Veterans will still trickle into the depths of free agency and there's still a major move or two (looking at you, Dame).
The Phoenix Suns no longer employ the talents of Chris Paul after months of speculation surrounding his future with the franchise. Dating back to the trade deadline months ago, the Suns were reportedly searching for alternatives for Paul, who just turned 38-years-old.
It's summer time - which means the NBA rumor mill continues to spin with claim after claim of what would or should have been as the offseason progresses. The Suns have been at the forefront of most of those rumors, thanks to a variety of reasons.
The UAB big man had a solid opener in Vegas and brings a physical presence. The Summer League is a chance for young players to get their reps in, to showcase their talents, and to develop their skillset against other competitors attempting to do the same.
The Golden State Warriors have been the gold standard for over the last decade in the NBA, stringing together a stretch that's only been matched by the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan in the 1990's. It almost feels off when the Warriors aren't the ones dancing under the confetti with the Larry O'Brien trophy at their disposal.
Pounding the Rock’s Jesus Gomez answered the hard hitting questions we want to know about KBD. With all of the new additions the Phoenix Suns have made to the roster, I feel like Deborah Kerr in the King and I.
Who will be lacing up for the Suns in Vegas starting tonight at 6 p.m. MST against the Bucks? Get to know the players on the Summer League roster. First, take a look at the most updated version of the roster via NBA.com.
The Phoenix Suns could potentially be looking to add one more piece to their depth-heavy puzzle. The team could reportedly “take a hard look and consider signing Bol Bol” once he clears waivers, according to Arizona Sports 98.7 FM’s John Gambadoro.
Bol Bol was waived by the Orlando Magic this week despite coming off objectively the most productive season of his short NBA career. While Bol’s injury-proneness is obviously a cause for concern, it seems he will have no trouble generating intrigue on the open market.
As expected, Phoenix Suns All-Star Devin Booker is excited about playing with Bradley Beal. Even though Booker and Beal are both shooting guards, the former is looking forward to sharing the court with the latter next NBA season.
The Suns have officially added free agent forward Yuta Watanabe and center/forward Chimezie Metu, according to the NBA transactions page. Watanabe, 28, averaged 5.6 points on 49 percent shooting, including 44 percent on 3-pointers in 58 games with the Nets last season.
