Suns' Babby wants Phoenix to be a free agent destination
However, as President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby has said, the team will not spend money just for the sake of spending money.
Which begs the question, for what is admittedly a talent- deficient roster:
Will any prime-time free agents want to come to the Valley to play basketball?
Babby thinks so.
"Everyone wants to play with Steve Nash, and he's made a lot of guys a lot of money over the years because of the way he plays," he said at an end-of-the-season meeting with local media.
But Nash is himself a free agent, and if he chooses to leave town much of the allure Phoenix has could go with him.
"I'm confident that no matter what happens this is going to become a destination for free agents," Babby continued. "It should be, there's no reason for it not to be, and we're going to do everything we can to make this as player-friendly a franchise as we can.
"And early returns on how our players feel about it is we're making a lot of progress in that area."
