A reminder the Suns own the bird rights to Torrey Craig and Bismack Biyombo still. Drew Eubanks makes it tougher to see Jock Landale coming back, but PHX could be negotiating deals for more than “expected” for Torrey and/or Biz for trade flexibility with those bird rights – 6:34 PM

More on this storyline

Regarding the upcoming 2023-24 season, the Suns are right at the $162 million luxury tax with just Durant, Beal, Booker, and Ayton. Their only means to increase their payroll beyond minimum salaries is with a $5 million trade exception they own and re-signing Torrey Craig, Jock Landale, Bismack Biyombo, and Darius Bazley. If they do not reduce payroll, it could exceed $190 million, with a luxury tax penalty in the $90 million range. -via HoopsHype / June 19, 2023
Bobby Marks: Phoenix will have the veteran minimum and early bird rights to Jock Landale, Torrey Craig to fill out the roster. They are a projected second apron team for at least the next three seasons. -via Twitter @BobbyMarks42 / June 18, 2023
