The Phoenix Suns continue their search for small yet critical pieces in a potential championship push.
Despite losing Aaron Holiday, JaVale McGee and Frank Kaminsky, the Suns were able to acquire Jock Londale (via trade), Damion Lee and Josh Okogie among others to help fill some voids in the roster.
However, the Suns may not be done shopping.
Fastbreak’s Ben Stinar believes Phoenix should bring back a familiar face to the Valley.
Should Suns Bring Back Gerald Green?
“He most recently played for the Houston Rockets for two seasons (2018 and 2019). When he was on the Rockets he was a high-volume three-point shooter. In 2018, he averaged 12.1 points per contest on 36.9% shooting from the three-point range, “said Stiner.
“He took 7.3 shots per game from behind the arc that season. The following year, he averaged 9.2 points per contest, and shot 35.4% from the three-point range. He took 6.0 shots from behind the arc that season.
“While on the Rockets, the team was a contender, and Chris Paul was on the roster. Right now, the Suns are a contender, and Paul is on the roster. He is several years older now, but Green could still be used in that same role as Houston.
“In addition, he would have the familiarity with Paul and the Suns’ franchise.”
Green, who is 36-years-old, played in the G League last season and averaged 18 points and 5.1 rebounds per night.
Would Phoenix allow him to occupy a roster spot? Probably not, but if the Suns did want to find a cheap veteran who will buy into what they’re doing, Green is certainly an option, albeit further down the list.
