Locked On Suns Wednesday: Budenholzer drops out, plus names to watch in free agency

We go through the news before highlighting some of our early favorite fits from the 2018 free agency pool.

On today’s episode, we tried to piece together the real Mike Budenholzer story after the Hawks announced they have parted ways with their coach of five years. Plus, a quick reaction to Mohamed Bamba’s apparently improved jump shot and finally, listed a handful of guys to watch as free agency nears.

Was Budenholzer’s ploy just a part of his plan to find a team that will give him personnel power, or is it really just the Bucks or Knicks jobs he wanted all along?

Does Bamba’s potential 3-point shot change much about our impressions of him from a season’s worth of vanilla output?

There are several prospective free agents who could be on the Suns’ radar in free agency as they look for frontcourt help and a starting guard opposite Devin Booker. We looked at names like Fred VanVleet, Danny Green, Luc Richard Mbah A Moute and Joe Johnson + talked young vs. old, long and short deals, and more.
