"I hear they treat old people well in Phoenix..."
Reports from Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski (basically the most IN guy in all of NBA chatter) reports this afternoon that the Phoenix Suns are most definitely super-interested in picking up Boston Celtics free agent Ray Allen.
Ray Allen is 37. What the.
From his Article:
The Phoenix Suns have surfaced as serious contenders to sign Boston Celtics free agent Ray Allen, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Allen, 37, is willing to explore offers beyond Boston. The Suns - regardless of whether they re-sign free-agent point guard Steve Nash - interest Allen, sources said.
What does this even mean?
We'll have more on this as we get the info - but for now I personally am bewildered.
The post-Kerr Suns front office has been very tight-lipped in their first couple years here in Phoenix and for the life of me I can't put my finger on quite anything they've got brewing. In light of everything everything we've heard recently, this is the conversation I imagine is going on in Suns GM Lance Blanks' head right now.
"So we're trying to get more talent, and get younger... wait no, we want a BIG in the draft! Yeah that's it... wait no, we want a wing because who knows if Grant Hill will be back and to his old BAMF form... *mutter ... NO we are moving on because Steve Nash is most definitely way out of here... PSYCHE! We want Nash so we've got to bring in more talent... hmmm. I'm the man! Yeah! ... yeah. RAY ALLEN. BOOM. I'm a genius."
What is your initial reaction?
