Phoenix sees Redd as potential addition


08:16 AM ET 12.29 | The offensively challenged and 0-2 Phoenix Suns sure could use a player like Michael Redd -- who just happens to be available. [Redd], who has a scary knee history, worked out for the Suns at US Airways Center on Tuesday, and the Suns are expected to sign the 32-year-old Thursday to address their need for scoring and shooting. Redd likely would not play immediately as he learns the Suns' system and works into playing shape. Redd worked out for the Suns along with free agent NBA veteran Ime Udoka and free agent Gilbert Brown, but Redd appears to have the primary interest. The Suns also had Redd's left knee examined because he has played only 61 games over the past three seasons due to two surgeries.

They would be better off with Sonny Redd from Donnie Brasco, his knees are probably in better shape

Pheonix had the team before Gasol arrived in LA. The window have closed on the Suns, they went from being a top contender to a team striving to compete. When you look at the Suns a lot of the familiar faces are gone (Diaw, Stoudamire, Bell, Brazilian Blurr), the team have tried (Shaq, Vince Carter, Grant Hill, Lopez, Frye, Richardson, Turkalouge), the only constant remaining is Steve Nash and father time has caught him. Also, remember Robert Horry's hip check on Nash that caused a suspension of two of Pheonix core guys, that hurt, San Antonio went on to win the title.

So where do the Suns go from here? Rebuild! Give up the though that it will return to the post Gasol days, it won't happen.
