Phoenix Suns, and the team enters the important period
Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby, as a
guest on Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Friday, said
there are a number of different players the team will
“We have the ability to spend whatever money we have
available to us under the salary cap,” he said. “We’re
going to maybe spend all of it, maybe spend some of it,
certainly not spend none of it.”
Indeed, the Suns have as much cap as nearly any team in
the league, and with it the ability to win any bidding war
that may ensue for a particular player. However, many feel
there are too few available players who will be worth
spending the money on, meaning there’s a good chance the
team won’t make the big splash many are hoping for.
And that would be OK, because it’s better to save the
money than waste it on a mediocre player.
“We’re going to make smart decisions, and we’ve got our
targets,” Babby said. “We’re trying to be disciplined, as
I’ve said all along, and make wise decisions.
