    If he can instill some toughness and attitude into Ayton I’m all for it.

    BTW. Jalen Smith said the player he wants most to emulate in intensity and playing style is Kevin Garnett.

    Uh. Keep that thought young man.

    lol... we already have one big man’s mouth writing that check his ass hasn’t cashed yet. Let’s leave it at one Jalen.

    Meh. He could have said that he looks to emulate the intensity of Dwight Howard.

    I don't know why he called you grandpa, but I have to agree on the other point We don't know if Jalen can back up his bravado. We DO know right now that DeAndre hasn't backed up his bravado. So I have no problem with Jalen having some confidence. Now he just has to deliver.

    Great signing. I’m not sure why people are complaining about the money, freaking Derrick Jones got 9M/year

    Not a fan but the Suns needed a enforcer sense Tucker left. Fits player Jones wants, able to shoot, DF and play multiple poss.

    If his legs can develop, I could see the potential for that. In the meantime I would settle for Jonathan Isaac.

    Free throws -- 1.5 made per game out of 2.0 attempted. Another 'big' who doesn't draw fouls.

    He's more like PJ Tucker than he is a post up big. He's only maybe an inch taller than PJ and like Tucker he's physical on the perimeter, he's not the guy you feed the ball to down low. For comparison, PJ has averaged 1.3 attempts per game in his NBA career.
