    Thanks, very helpful. The Suns signing Barbosa doesn’t help the guard depth in front of Ulis, but since he has a guaranteed contract already he has some security even if he doesn’t get immediate playing time.

    You don’t think Booker playing in the Summer League means that his starting sport with the Suns is in danger, do you?

      I think they are just looking to get as much game time experience as possible for a second year guy who is expected to lead the team

      I agree, Booker in the Summer League doesn’t make much sense. I didn’t expect to see Willie there, either.
