Still money out there. Khem Birch receives 3 year, $20 million contract.

It's not surprising, no Andre Iguodala in cards for Suns.

I only saw him play a few times recently but he didn't look like he belonged on the court anymore. With all this interest I'm wondering if I caught him on the wrong nights. Anyone see him play and still be effective?

Yeah, Iggy’s cooked.

I'm glad the Suns are not chasing these type players around.

I'm sure somebody already said most of this…, Probably multiple people, but the Phoenix Suns needed to lock up Chris Paul in CP15, a legit backed up for DA, and somebody with some legit 4/5 size to replace Dario Saric. I think that unless they can get a good deal on the latter in free agency they'll go into the season with Smith and Johnson as the backup 4s. It might also be nice to get another PG on the bench, but I'm not terribly concerned about that.

It doesn't surprise me that we aren't signing a bunch of veteran free agents. There isn't going to be a lot of playing time to be had barring injury. That said I would feel a lot more comfortable with another 4/5 or long 3/4 on the roster who can play some D and keep defenses honest. They'll probably give Smith that opportunity and I don't know possibly check out some other summer league league team guys like Alexander to take a spot as well.

Anyhow, the point I was trying to make before I started rambling is that it sounded like James Jones was convinced the best moves he could make this summer were to bring back the core of the team from last year and count on improvements from the young players. Hopefully they can keep the torch lit under DA's butt even if he signs an extension for the season starts. Overall I would say his general improvement in the playoffs was the biggest factor in our success and it will be going forward as well Oh yeah, the icing on the cake would be Booker's continued Improvement defensively and consistent accuracy from the three-point range.

Kelly Oubre is in discussions about signing with Charlotte.

Not overpaying Oubre is one of the best decisions we made. We were able to move his expiring deal along with Rubio for CP3. Even though he’s gone we have a lot to be thankful for his time here.
I would have kept Rubio and paid Oubre, sure glad we didn't. But Kelly had those nights when he was a lot of fun to watch.

Neh, he is not effective anymore. I was hoping for him to sign here, but more as a mentor/ coach for Bridges and Cam J than as an actual player. There was no way he was gonna sniff the playing time on this team.
