phoenix lost out on all the shooting guards they wanted. eric gordon, oj mayo, courtney lee. who else is out there that they can sign for cheap, thats good? do they start jared dudley at the 2? bring in some veterans at the 2 and 3 for cheap?
Here's what they have right now
PG- Goran Dragic / Kendall Marshall / Sebastian Telfair
SG- Jared Dudley / Shannon Brown
SF- Michael Beasley / Jared Dudley
PF- Luis Scola / Markieff Morris / Michael Beasley / Channing Frye
C- Marcin Gortat / Channing Frye
Brown is an unrestricted FA, is he not?
Jodie Meeks is a cheap option I could see if they wanted to bolster their bench but even if they make no more moves, I think they have some decent depth. Dudley can play a little bit at the 2 guard and you could even have Dragic and Marshall at the same time if they wanted to.
phoenix just signed shannon brown?!
phoenix should resign michael redd or marco belinelli for shooters at the two guard and be set with that
Wasn't Belinelli already about to sign with someone? Was it Chicago?
Wes Johnson will be a solid shooter/defender off the bench. I think Dudley will start at the 2 (although Johnson has more potential and still has a shot at reaching it) and they will just have a very physical, big line-up with Dudley, Beasley, Scola and Gortat. All of their quicker players are coming off the bench (Johnson, Brown, Morris).
If you are looking for a shooting guard, Leandro Barbosa is still out there. Better guy off the bench, but he adds a lot of energy and scoring.
Would not break the bank, but would want at least a mini-mid - maybe more, and is likely looking for 2-3 year commitment minimum.
Don't know if he would want to go back to Poenix though.
“As soon as the season was over, [Thibodeau] just had me in here with him, and we just worked out almost every day, just trying to get ready for the USA,” Gibson said of his preparation for the 2012 USA Men’s Select Team. “I wanted to make a good impression for the USA camp, and he came down and watched every practice. I did a good job, got good feedback, and I feel positive about it.xvase32
