Yesterday, our own John Voita kicked off a week of some in-depth free agency breakdowns. The focus of that first piece was Serge Ibaka, a veteran anchor who would no doubt boost the Suns’ offense, defense and leadership. At the same time, a player of Ibaka’s caliber will be pricey, requiring the Suns to make some theoretical cuts to their roster to preserve cap space.
But what if the Suns decide to “run it back,” as some fans have been suggesting since their 8-0 bubble run? If they focus on using bird rights to re-sign players like Saric, Baynes, and Carter, can they still add additional talent in an effort to improve?
