Anthony Bennett, Troy Daniels to the Suns

As the NBA season approaches, the Phoenix Suns have made multiple moves to fill the roster. The first move was the signing of Anthony Bennett to a non-guaranteed contract for the season. The only idea that the Suns may have behind this signing is giving the guy one more chance. Anthony Bennett was drafted first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2013 draft out of UNLV. Bennett bounced around the league on four other NBA teams before he eventually signed with Fenerbahce, a team in the Turkish basketball league, last season. Fenerbahce had a successful year winning the Euroleague, but Bennett did not contribute much. They released him after the season. If Bennett does not take this opportunity and excel, he might go down as the biggest bust in NBA history. The Suns may be hoping that Bennett just has not had the right opportunity yet.

Secondly, reported by Adrian Wojnarowski, the Phoenix Suns have completed a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies. Troy Daniels and a second round pick are being sent to Phoenix for a heavily protected second round pick, supposedly protected to 55. This just looks like a salary dump to me. He is set to make a little less than seven million dollars over the next two seasons. The Grizzlies might be trying to make some cap room, while the Suns will take on the money if they can get higher draft picks.

With the additions of Anthony Bennett and Troy Daniels, I do not see much movement in this team. I do not expect anything big out of either one of these guys, but you never know they could flourish in Phoenix.
