08:12 AM ET 01.09 | During Sunday's win over Milwaukee, Michael Redd sat in street clothes, something he'll soon trade for a Suns uniform. By Thursday, Redd could line up his work with his team's schedule. Suns coach Alvin Gentry said that Redd might make his Suns debut in home games Thursday and Friday nights against Cleveland and New Jersey. Gentry said he did not expect Redd to play Tuesday night on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers. "He's getting close, not to being a 30-minute-a-game guy or anything but to the point where he can step in and help us," Gentry said. "When we get back (from Los Angeles), there is a possibility." Redd would have liked to return to the court for the first time since April against the Bucks.

Personally, I'm pullin' for Redd to make a comeback.

The guy's got bad wheels but if he can give the Suns about 20 minutes (and 10-12 points) a game, he could make them a dangerous team to play down the stretch.

Have nothing against him personally, but its a young and healthy mans game.Phoenix would be better off signing some guard from the Y and maybe they get lucky and he turns into something.Bringing in a broken down older player is STUPID for PhoenixWhat is their plan? Their direction?I would say that this team has the worst mix of 'talent' in the league. I mean they aren't good enough to compete now and they have no young solid talent.....Break it all up for goodness sakes.

I agree man but redd was a Hell of a player when he was healthy...makes me feel kinda bad for the guy

Not sure but one idea may be to draft a pg and have him learn a thing er two from one a the best

Nash could bring back a pick and good player, gortat could bring back a pick, mean hell sell off the team doctor, thisw team is rudderless

They might get a late 1st round pick for Nash at this point since most the teams that like making stupid deals have already emptied their cupboards. In terms of the Suns ability to draft the last 5 years that means they have a 50-50 shot of turning everything they get for Nash into 1 player that can even make the roster. That well is pretty dry.
