Mystery solved. The tall guy in the video posted last Friday on Suns voluntary workouts is non other than 6'10" big man Solomon Jones.

"I think there's going to be an opportunity there for him," Jones' agent, Mark Bartelstein, said of Phoenix. "He's worked out hard this summer and he's in great shape."

Jones has been participating over the past week in the Suns' voluntary workouts at US Airways Center.

Solomon Jones has played several seasons in the NBA, but only got a couple of 10-day contracts last season with the Clippers and Hornets. He is tall and has a soft touch around the basket, but is too weak to defend other big men or rebound in traffic.

He's really a camp body while Channing Frye recovers from shoulder surgery, a big man who can run up and down the court during the grind of two-a-days.
