Josh Gray    G  Suns

 

 

The Suns officially signed Josh Gray to a 10-day contract on Friday. Gray averaged 17.9 points, 6.0 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 steals over 31 G-League games this season. He should be left on the waiver wire, as he likely won't see significant minutes for Phoenix.

Brandon Knight    G  Suns

 

 

Brandon Knight (knee) has been traveling with the team but confirmed he will not return during the 2017-18 season. The Suns benched Knight following the All-Star break last season. Then Knight tore his ACL in a charity pickup game last August. He is still owed $30.2 million over the next two seasons.

Josh Gray    G  Suns

 

 

The Suns will sign Josh Gray to a 10-day deal. The 24-year-old guard moves up from the G League to help replace Isaiah Canaan. Gray is undersized at just 6'1", so apparently the Suns like short backup point guards. He's been pretty solid in the G League with averages of 17.9 points, 6.0 dimes, 2.3 steals and 2.4 treys. Leave him on the wire in all leagues for now, though.

Greg Monroe    C  Suns

 

 

The Suns officially waived Greg Monroe. That means he'll be clearing waivers on Saturday. For now, the Pelicans look to be the heavy favorites to land Monroe, which would be a terrific landing spot for him. Anthony Davis said he's "OK" playing center, but maybe he doesn't want to play exclusively at that spot. Monroe is probably going to come off the bench and he could be looking at minutes in the low 20s. He's worth an add in just most formats, but he doesn't offer the upside like some of the other red-hot pickups like Jarrett Allen or even Wayne Selden.

Isaiah Canaan    G  Suns

 

 

Isaiah Canaan had surgery and he will be out for the rest of the season. The good news is he is expected to be ready for camp. Canaan is going to turn 27 years old in May and he did help his case for a roster spot on some team next year, averaging 8.6 points, 3.8 dimes, 0.8 steals and 1.1 treys in 20 games this season. We'll be rooting for some Canaan balls in 2018-19. Fantasy wise, Josh Jackson is the beneficiary here.

Greg Monroe    C  Suns

 

 

The Pelicans have gathered "significant momentum in pursuit" of Greg Monroe according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry has already been in touch with Monroe and they will continue to make "an aggressive push to sign" him. The Pelicans can offer him the chance to start at center with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) out for the season, something the Celtics, Spurs or maybe even the Wizards can't do. Monroe is expected to make a decision as soon as Friday or Saturday and his fantasy owners should be rooting for a move to New Orleans.

Greg Monroe    C  Suns

 

 

The Wizards and Spurs have also shown interest in Greg Monroe. It sounds like the Pelicans and Celtics are the current favorites, but there should be at least a few more playoff-bound teams that will throw their names in the hat. Monroe will clear waivers on Friday evening, so we'll likely hear several more rumors before then.

Isaiah Canaan    PG  Suns

 

 

Suns interim head coach Jay Triano said following Wednesday's 102-88 win over the Mavericks that Canaan would undergo season-ending surgery Thursday on his fractured left ankle, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports. This was always the expected outcome for Canaan after he broke the ankle in gruesome fashion while driving to the hoop late in the first quarter Wednesday. The point guard was stretchered off the court following the injury while his teammates and Mavericks players looked on in visible shock. Canaan, an impending free agent this offseason, is expected to face a lengthy rehab for the injury and will likely remain unsigned until he demonstrates in workouts that he's fully healthy. Canaan's absence for the rest of the season likely guarantees second-year player Tyler Ulis a permanent spot in Phoenix's rotation as the backup to starting point guard Devin Booker.

Devin Booker    SG  Suns

 

 

Booker scored 15 points (5-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding four assists, two rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 102-88 win over the Mavericks. After missing Monday's game due to sore ribs, Booker was back in action but didn't quite look like his usual self, committing five turnovers and four fouls to go along with the missed shots. He still wrapped up the month of January averaging 23.4 points, 6.0 assists, 4.2 boards, 2.7 three-pointers and 1.2 steals in 13 games, and as the focal point of a young Suns offense he should be in line for a big finish to the season if he can avoid further injuries.
