Solar Panel, ep. 94: Thoughts on Jamal Crawford, plus Amin Elhassan helps us preview the Suns season

The takes are hot, and they’re just as good as they are bad

In the latest Solar Panel, the guys go through all the latest news and notes and get you ready for the 2018-19 season.

  • How would Jamal Crawford fit with the Phoenix Suns? Would he hinder player development, or just provide a backstop to avoid disaster?
  • Who is the GM going forward for the Suns? James Jones, Trevor Bukstein or someone else?
  • Is James Jones the new Lon Babby or Earl Watson?
  • Plateaus versus grand canyons
  • Tim, Greg and Dave EACH give us two positive things about the Suns this preseason (Tim even adds in a sunny background beat)

Special guest

Don’t miss the second half of the pod!!

Amin Elhassan — former front office member of the Suns, current ESPN NBA insider — joins us to talk in detail about Igor Kokoskov’s strengths as a coach and mentor to the players, what Trevor Bukstein provides as the new acting ‘#2’ in the front office, and how many wins he thinks the Suns will tally.
