NBA: Phoenix Suns at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

On the Solar Panel this week, Tim and Dave discuss lots of Suns topics, including the free agent SMALL FORWARD crop such as

  • giving up on the thought of Kevin Durant, Paul George and LeBron James, and hoping the Suns don’t waste time “waiting for meetings” with them on July 1
  • Passing on the likes of Wilson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony, Trevor Ariza and Rudy Gay because they would take minutes from Josh Jackson without being a lot better
  • and maybe focusing on combo forward 3-and-D guys good enough to earn real minutes who can raise the level of professionalism on the team. Listen to find out who we suggest

On the episode, we also discuss how the Grizzlies took the tank to a new level, and whether the Suns have any room to throw stones.

And finally, is Jason Kidd really a smart option for the Phoenix Suns as coach?

Those are just a couple of the fun topics covered by Tim and Dave this week!
