It is hard for me to imagine that there is a CBA player who could be much help for the Suns. They certainly had the incentive to look at htese guys hard when KT went down.
At this point the Suns roster
is fairly full, so to make the team a new guy from either the draft or free agency has to be better than what the team has:
There are seven rotation guys who are locks:
There are two others who might be expendible, but will be on the team if not traded
Tim Thomas is a free agent and probably beyond their price range. It is unlikely that Jones stays if TT is signed.
Grant has a player option for the second season and is likely to return if he chooses.
There are three guys whose status is doubtful:
IMHO, the most likely scenerio is that TT leaves and Grant stays. A better result would be if TT stayed, Jones was moved, and Grant retired, but that seems unlikely The likely result is a core of 10 guys. .
Right now the Suns have two first round draft picks who get guaranteed contracts. It is unlikely the Suns will carry more than 13 players baring injuries. At this point, it does not look like a CBA free agent would have much chance.
All of this would change if there is a trade or two. I don't hink they will trade one of their top seven, but everyone else is fair game. If there is a "many for fewer" players deal, all bets are off.
