James Jones and the Suns will they move their workforce by the start of the regular season? The question may arise according to Brian Windhorst. Our colleague from ESPN, without giving further details, has explained that the Suns have been negotiating for a few weeks and discussions have begun.
Obviously, it is Jae Crowder who would be on the start side of the 2021 finalists. The strong winger is out of contract and will be free in 2023, so he is an interesting bargaining chip.
Still according to Brian Windhorst, the Suns would target Bojan Bogdanovic. We know, however, that the Jazz and Danny Ainge are greedy in Draft rounds and that the Suns are less well equipped than others in this area. But since the Arizona franchise has had the shooter in its sights for some time, why not convince Utah with the Jae Crowder contract.
Finally, Brian Windhorst announces that the leaders will try to extend Cameron Johnson. The sixth man is still under contract, until 2023, but the Suns would like to ensure his presence over several years and above all avoid reliving an episode like that of Deandre Ayton this summer.
As a reminder, Phoenix had not extended the pivot, after tense negotiations between the two camps, and during the offseason, he was therefore free but « protected ». He thus accepted the offer of the Pacers, at 133 million dollars over four years. The Suns having the last word, they finally decided to align to keep it.
