He's a perfect fit as backup pg and he's the veteran this team needs at age 38.

REALLY? Let's bring Amare and Marion too.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

I’m pretty sure Paul Westphal’s a free agent.
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

He’s not a pg, Tyler Johnson is better. This team isn’t lacking in veterans.

Why are you so interested in adding backup pg’s that are worse than our current backup pg?

Many people come to Arizona to retire.

I hear Booker likes Frosted Flakes but, rumor has it he has a soft spot for Lucky Charms.

Westphal becomes the latest Sun in the Hall of Fame next week. His presenters will be Elgin Baylor and Charles Barkley. Baylor was his favorite player growing in in California. Charles is, well, Charles.

That's awesome. I'll be watching. One of my favorite players growing up too.

Joe was a 4 by the time he retired.

Roasting 57-year old Mahmoud Abdul Rauf and 400 lb. Glen Davis in a 3-on-3 setting doesn't give me confidence that he can adequately be our backup PG.

I don’t think there are any written rules. Booker torches just about everybody one on one. Hence the most doubles in the nba. Getting doubled and passing out of it to an open man is something he should work on, no matter what the team.
Um. I wish that was it. It’s because no one else on the team was a real offensive threat. Shut down Book, shut down the Suns. That was the game plan for every opponent last year.

he's actually a "point forward" and has better point guard skills than TJ. The oldest player on the team is baynes at 32. second oldest is rubio at 28.

and of course joe johnson wont be defending the other team's point guard.

Last I saw Joe Johnson he had slowed considerably. Big 3 is perfect for a guy like him. Hard to believe he's 36 tho. He'll always be a big "what if" player for me.

He was 36 the last time he played in the nba. He’s 38 now.
