Weird, you are supposed to get 50 appearances during the regular season before a 2-way has to be converted and Ish has appeared in 40 games. Unless there is some rule that alters that given his 2way/conversion last year.xc_hide_links_from_guests_guests_error_hide_media
As far as what I'd do, I'd still bring in someone from the buyout market to get a look and just keep Ish out of games for awhile. If someone goes down after March 1st having Ish a potential replacement is good insurance.
It wouldn't be James Jones if he didn't keep us in the dark until the last possible second.James Jones has not made a decision on Ish Wainright (two-way) as yet. He has a game left before a decision has to be made in regard to a conversion to a standard contract.
Here is a link to the interview with Jones on Arizona Sports today.
I wonder if John Wall is on the Suns radar.
The vets that bounce around rarely have an impact, they're getting cut because they're totally washed.
Saban Lee is a superior player at this point.
I'd rather bring back Washington than sign Wall.
Wall can't shoot and can't defend anymore. I'd rather bring in a young hungry player than sign a vet who longer has their skills but expects to play a role.
There isn't much time, a week from today is the deadline to sign a player that will be available for the playoffs.So just listened to the James Jones interview and I have a few thoughts.
First off Jones has been much more open and honest lately in his interviews, and as a fan I very much appreciate it.
So, he basically said the Suns were interested in Love, but Love was more interested in Miami because of the opportunity he would get to play there.
He also said he is not worried about the backup point guard position - basically said with Durant and Book, he feels they have the ability to run the offense and someone like Okogie can bring the ball up. So this is a pretty good indication we aren't interested in Wall or filling the roster spot with a PG.
He hinted that they are leaning towards keeping Ish, but that they may not do it right away, because he can stay on the bench but just not play under the 2 way. Basically sounds like they may just leave the last spot open for awhile.
