Stromile Swift - headed your way

New, comments

I believe that Stromile Swift will be signed by the Suns in the next few days.

He's a nice low risk addition with good experience. I don't know much more about him beyond the obvious - he's an athletic big that can block shots and finish. The Suns have an open roster spot anyway and if they aren't going to play a young guy like Sims then Swift is a good option if he signs for the vet minimum.

His per 36 minute career average are 15 points, 8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks which are decent numbers. Here's what Hoops Hype says about him:

Outstanding athleticism... One of the best dunkers in the league... If he is on the court, alley-oops will be an offensive weapon to consider for his team... Will grab a few rebounds thanks to his huge leaping skills... Has a sometimes effective mid-range shot... Takes too many of them, though... Runs the floor well... Low basketball IQ... Has not lived up to the expectations.
