There is a difference between Shams delivering insider news and Shams giving his opinion, just like Woj and every other media outlet.
But how in the world is gonna be that info an opinion from Shams??
So you think that he has said those three teams out of nowhere?
He has said "expected" because teams can not talk yet with agents, teams or players...but he knows that those teams are interested in him.
It may not necessarily be an opinion from Shams...and might be his "insider" news that other teams/GMS/agents "expect" the Suns to have interest but I still think it's just speculation from somewhere. The Suns are not going to go out and tell people 'Hey, we're interested in Grant" and they can't talk to him or anyone about him without it being tampering. They play stuff close to the vest. I don't think anyone is leaking anything.
Do you really think they are telling people they are interested in Grant? Besides being against the rules, it doesn't look good to our own players or their trade value.
You are assuming that the Suns leaked the info. Could be an agent, an assistant coach from the Nuggets who is close to Grant...who knows...but what I beliebe is that is true. At least that we are interested in him as a FA.
Shams and Woj are all about official info. They are not spreading made up stuff, they get a lot of info from agents, GMs, players... they are basically the official channel for NBA rumors and news.
