Locked On Suns Monday: At long last, Phoenix gets its point guard in Ricky Rubio

We break down Rubio’s fit in Phoenix, whether his contract is fair value based on the rest of the market, and what comes next for the Suns.

We break down what went into the Suns’ decision to pivot to Ricky Rubio on the first day of free agency as other point guards flew off the market at gargantuan price tags, as well as Rubio’s fit with the Suns.

Then we take a few listener questions and explain why the Suns opted not to sign someone like D’Angelo Russell, instead betting on their young core to grow into a contending team.

We close the show with a breakdown of Kelly Oubre’s market after Day One of free agency and how the Suns might fill their backup 4 spot.
