Brooks Future with Suns Uncertain
The Suns remain unsettled on how to act on (Aaron) Brooks, although it seems doubtful that he will join a team with three point guards and play at this stage. The Suns could sign Brooks to a mult-iyear contract while they have exclusive negotiating rights, but that would cut into their July salary-cap flexibility for free agency.
They could let him go into free agency and still be able to match any team’s offer if they elect to keep him.
“It’s put us in a situation where we need to have some serious conversations, internally and potentially with Aaron, about the state of where we are and what’s going to make the most sense with the organization,” (Lance) Blanks said. “I can’t give you A or B right now, but it certainly needs to be discussed. He’s a NBA-level point guard and a pretty good one. Does it make sense now or later? Those things need to be talked about, and that’s a lot easier to do that when you have spent a week with a guy seeing him live in basketball games and talking to him.”
