If Saban Lee can improve his shooting, he is a legitimate NBA level player.

Metu is turning the ball over too much.

Keon Johnson is pressing. Unlikely to make the Suns roster, but he could develop down the road.

I so wish the Suns could add a big man like Duop Reath at center.

This is the first season in forever I am happy with the Suns point guard depth.

Suns have 1 PG and you're happy with that. That's funny.


I get what you mean though, there's plenty of guys who can play PG.

that isn’t going to happen, his shooting form is awful, and if he was going to change it, he would have done it by now.

Saban misses some close-in shots when he penetrates. That can be improved.

He’s a walking turnover with his stupid sloppy passing! So out of control when he drives rarely good things happen. I think he’s one of the cuts he’ll be lucky if he hangs on to a 2 way spot!

Who would you rather have on your roster, Saban Lee or Elfrid Payton? And Payton is on a standard contract.

He's a Two-Way player still. He's probably more NBA ready than a good portion of other Two-Way guys around the league. It'd be nice if he developed a more consistent shot but saying he can't doesn't jive with reality. Look at Okogie, he's come a long way with his shooting over the last year and we all hope he continues to improve. It won't ever be an overnight thing and we can afford some patience given his contract status.
