It took me a while to get around to the Suns, but I’ve finally updated them with the signings of Damion Lee, Keita Bates-Diop, Drew Eubanks, Chimezie Metu, Josh Okogie, and Yuta Watanabe.
$56.4M tax, and $245M total roster with 14 players.

2. Al Horford
3. Damion Lee (44.5%)
4. Malcolm Brogdon
5. Yuta Watanabe (44.4%)

Shed a tear for hipster NBA Twitter because Yuta Watanabe is about to go mainstream and we’re gonna need a new hustle forward to fawn over. – 7:37 PM

NEW 📝 for @MileHighSports
Free agency opens up tomorrow, and the Nuggets have questions in their 2nd unit.
I put forth 25 players the Nuggets should target in free agency and trade, from Delon Wright to Eric Gordon to…Yuta Watanabe?
Check it out!

Of the 279 players to attempt more than 100 three-pointers this past season, Yuta Watanabe was one of only two players to shoot above 49% from the field and above 44% from downtown.
(Luke Kennard was the other) – 8:12 AM

Every fanbase wants Yuta Watanabe – 3:26 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Yuta Watanabe and Mike James are potential Suns FA targets, per @TheSteinLine.
“As PHX scours the league for quality players willing to play for the minimum, Nets sharpshooter Yuta Watanabe and Nets alumnus Mike James (Durant’s close friend) have surfaced as potential targets.” – 11:39 AM

More on this storyline

John Gambadoro: I will leave you with this before my flight takes off for the motherland – a couple of potential targets for the Phoenix Suns – Keita Bates-Diop and Yuta Watanabe. Suns are a prime destination for vet minimum free agents! -via Twitter / June 29, 2023
