In an interesting turn of events, Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Suns are meeting today with restricted free agent point guard Isaiah Thomas.
It appears that the first meeting involving the Suns and a free agent from outside the organization will be with Isaiah Thomas.
Restricted free agent guard Isaiah Thomas visiting Suns today, sources tell Yahoo. Suns looking to build on deep backcourt.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 10, 2014
The 5'9 shoot-first point guard enjoyed a stellar season in 2013/14, posting career highs of 20.3 PPG and 6.3 APG, with a PER of 20.5.
This is certainly surprising news considering that the Suns already have Goran Dragic and their own restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe in the fold, plus the first-round draft pick they just used on Tyler Ennis. Are they looking to turn the Slash Bros into a triumvirate? Is this a prelude to another (bigger?) trade? Will the 2014/15 Phoenix Suns consist entirely of point guards?
The Phoenix Suns held their final media session before heading off to Las Vegas to Summer League.
Because I know you guys love this stuff (as I would if I wasn't here), here are some random notes from the last media session before the Suns leave for Las Vegas Summer League:
The first Suns Summer League game is Saturday afternoon and will be shown on NBA TV. Our own Kellan Olson will be at SL this weekend and will post updates on the Suns and other teams throughout.
Oh by the way, has anyone tracked down LeBron's credit card receipts yet, or tapped his phone? You know the NSA knows exactly where LeBron is playing next year.
