As arguably one of the most active teams during the NBA off-season in terms of signing free agents and making trades, the Phoenix Suns have done a much better job of rebuilding the team in the post Steve Nash era.
After trading Nash to the division rival Los Angeles Lakers for draft picks on July 4, the Suns were thought to have given up on trying to remain a playoff contender in the Western Conference. Apparently, that doesn’t appear to be the case with Phoenix making plenty of moves during the free agency period in order to reload the roster moving forward.
Even though Nash went to the Lakers and veteran Grant Hill ultimately signed with the Los Angeles Clippers, the Suns have done better than expected in free agency with the acquisitions of Michael Beasley, Goran Dragic and Luis Scola.
Along with upgrading the frontcourt with Scola and Beasley, the Suns have also been able to keep a decent backcourt signing Dragic and re-signing Shannon Brown.
Over the past week or so, Brown was linked with the Chicago Bulls. Some reports surfaced of Brown having already signed with the Bulls in an attempt to return to his hometown of the Windy City to play alongside former NBA MVP Derrick Rose, but those reports were proved to be false.
Reportedly, the Suns have agreed to re-sign Brown to a two-year deal worth $7 million. Phoenix made the move to re-sign Brown after efforts to bring in Eric Gordon seem to have fallen apart with the New Orleans Hornets matching any offer given to the up-and-coming shooting guard.
Even though retaining Brown isn’t a game-changer for the Suns, it certainly helps the team moving forward with some secure at shooting guard without Hill or Gordon.
