You can never have enough guards. At least that’s been a theory the Phoenix Suns have seemingly subscribed to over the past few seasons. And while fans may roll their eyes at the notion, the team has reportedly expressed interest in another free agent guard if a tweet from ESPN Basketball Insider Jeff Goodman is to be believed.
Will Bynum priority is to play in NBA this season. Teams expressed interest, per source: Chicago, Wash, Phoenix Indiana, Toronto, Memphis.

Bynum, who played in seven games last season for the Washington Wizards scoring 22 total points, previously played in China with the Guangdong Southern Tigers as the backup to No. 7 overall pick of the Denver Nuggets, Emmanuel Mudiay. Filling in for Mudiay following an injury last season, Bynum averaged 22.3 points, 7.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game.
Having spent the lion’s share of his eight-year NBA career with the Detroit Pistons, Bynum would potentially join a crowded backcourt in Phoenix that already features Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight and Archie Goodwin.
