Solar Panel, ep. 136: Free Agency Reactions — what Ricky Rubio brings to the Suns

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Dave, Tim and Greg spend an hour with a LIVE reaction to the signing of Ricky Rubio, the Suns best point guard since Eric Bledsoe two years ago and their best passer since Steve Nash.


Rubio will be about the 20th highest paid point guard in the league next year at $17 million per year. He is coming off a four-year deal that just expired at $15 million per year.

After two seasons since Eric Bledsoe left, the Suns have finally found that point guard.

We also:

  • take listener questions
  • impact on Devin Booker being allowed to play shooting guard next year
  • reset the salary cap going forward
  • next moves needed (backup PF)
  • particular free agents asked about by the fans
  • and much more!
