I read you on that earlier in the game, so you’re saying he could take Payton’s spot for the year and not be on a 2 way?
I would say yes. They could release Payton and convert the 2-way. But I’m not sure that is legal given how close we are to the playoffs. In that case, playing Payton makes even less sense.

I think there is a very slight chance the Suns might want to put Lundberg on their 15 man playoff roster.

They would have to waive someone like Payton to do it.

I know Shamet has been playing better lately but I wish we could swap Caruso for him.

Kevin Ray said that the magic number is still 4 with this win. So I think Golden State prevents it from being 3.

I believe the magic number of 3 can be a combination of Suns wins and opponent losses by those who the are competing for 1st place in the Western Conference behind Phoenix.

I thought there was a deadline for any signed free agent to be eligible for the playoffs. And Iffe isn’t even in the “regular” roster.

I'm not sure of the date but Gabriel is not a traded player. There is a cutoff date for traded players that is already past.

A player could be waived and Lundberg could be converted from a two-way contract to a regular roster spot before the playoffs.

If there is a rule prohibiting it, I'd like to know.

I think he missed the fact the Golden state lost the other night and was a full game behind the grizz

Monty says Payton playing over Holiday was a matter of adding more size.

Heh, I was wondering what they were all laughing at when this happened live:

You know what I was the happiest about this game? Booker had the opportunity to jack a terrible shot for a 2-for-1 at the end of the 3rd, but DID NOT. They ran it down and got a good look (I think Payton missed a runner) instead.
