"I told him, feel free to give any suggestions and we'll sit down and talk and discuss personnel and we'll discuss playing time and all that right there," Gentry said. "Ultimately, I'm going to play whoever I think's going to win games for us."
As for the busy summer the Suns had prior to his arrival, Blanks said "They look like solid moves to me, and as Lon said, if the thing works out, thank God that he and I are here, and if it doesn't, I don't know what these guys were thinking about." (Everyone laughed here.)
Gentry made it clear who was really responsible for the moves, "It was all Robert. I wasn't me. He's not here to defend himself. So it was all Robert."
