Suns Won’t Offer Extension to Robin Lopez
With a Wednesday deadline looming, Phoenix Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said Tuesday night the team would not offer fourth-year center Robin Lopez a contract extension, making him a restricted free agent at season’s end.
“We reached out to (Lopez’s agent) Arn Tellem and let him know that we were willing to engage in discussions to see if there was any common ground that might make sense,” Babby said. “Their preference was to wait and see how things unfolded. We’re perfectly fine with that.
“We just wanted to make sure we made the appropriate overture. Everything was completely amicable.”
