Gani Lawal ready to make impact for the Suns next season

 

Here's a nice piece from Paul Coro written a few days ago that gives us a little insight into Lawal's return from injury next season, and what he (Gani) believes we can expect from him.

Of course every player will have mostly high expectations of himself combined with a positive outlook on his own potential, but the story and interview with Gani gives us a hopeful outlook in an area that has plagued our team since the departure of Amare Stoudemire.  Gani talks about getting stronger and working on his 15-footer to help him get better.  Any help in and around the paint from our 4 would be a welcomed addition, so I am happy to hear about his dedication and progress.

I came away from this piece with the impression that Gani is a very hard worker who is taking his opportunity seriously and doing all of the right things. There's also a nice quote in the article from our GM Lance Blanks about how people shouldn't think that Lawal and Markeiff offer similar skill sets, and that Gani would basically be viewed as a rookie coming into this season (assuming his non-guaranteed salary is picked up).

Check it out and let me know what you think.
