Suns sign C Damian Jones to 2 year deal 

Post#1 » by Golanator » Sun Nov 22, 2020 6:22 pm

Played 16.1 minutes per game last season for Atlanta, averaging 5.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.7 blocks.

Seems like an upgrade over Diallo so I’ll take it.

Good signing as a 3rd string center. Injuries and foul trouble backup kind of guy.

Baynes is definitely not coming back.

This about the best you could do with a minimum contract and no promise of playing time. He's a true big big and has some talent and experience.

He is a 2x NBA Champ!

25 years old but this will be already his 5th season. I like him a lot as a third string C.

May teach Ayton to dunk the ball.

Bad player but he shouldn't play more than 15-20 matches and few minutes.

He's not very good, but whatever I guess. Shouldn't play much. I'd have preferred someone like O'Quinn who's not just a big body, but also quite skilled. Baynes was good for Ayton's development just by being a smart, big player around him to watch and learn from.

Good players like that don't come at the minimum, and unfortunately you aren't spending more than the minimum on a 3rd string centre behind Ayton & Saric or Smith
