Like this signing he is a differnt type of big then what we have on the roster, he is a strong rebounder and I would much rather give him minutes then Kaminksy if Ayton is not on the floor. He is still very young has room to grow especially since he started playing at a late age.

Really wished he'd wear #2 so they can say over the speakers "CHEICK 2...CHEICK 2..."

Wayne's World 2, classic Farley.

He's going to be a fan favourite like Holmes was.

Hustle, energy, rebounding, defence.

Might even see him play some 5 if they go fast/small with Rubio/Booker/Bridges/Oubre/Diallo.

Also think against bigger teams he'll close in our defensive unit - Rubio/TJ/Bridges/Diallo/Baynes. That team can hang defensively, would need a sub straight away if we get a stop though!

I know for a fact that I was the 1st one here on this sight advocating to go steal Cheick from the Pels, a few people here asked why. Again I'll say this kid is really young, athletic, his work ethic attitude and swag are all excellent. Also practicing along side Anthony Davis can do wonders for your skill sets. I think this kid can really break out, I would not be surprised if by mid year he isn't the starter along side Ayton especially if we plan to play Ayton as a quasi power forward at times, these two would be interchangeable on the court with Diallo able to guard the tougher defensive big while playing with Ayton.

If Ayton can stretch and hit the 3 it might be good. I wouldn't really call him the PF necessarily but they would be somewhat interchangeable.

But I think Saric should be pretty solid. Hopefully the trend of players (outside of Oubre) playing worse when they come to the Suns does not continue.
