After having a busy offseason in which they almost completely remade their roster, the Phoenix Suns have gotten off to a sluggish start to the 2023-24 season. While that was partly to be expected, with so many new players as well as a new coach, injuries to Bradley Beal and Devin Booker have contributed to their 2-3 start.
Aside from two of their best players missing time to start the season, part of their slow start might also be due to the fact that the Suns don’t have a traditional point guard on their roster. While they are currently full up on rosters, a five-time all-star has expressed interest in joining the team.
NBA Rumors: Would the Phoenix Suns consider signing John Wall?
John Wall hasn’t played in the NBA since last season and has only played 74 games over the last four years. However, he seems ready to make another comeback and could potentially reunite with Beal, whom he last played with in Washington. There are a few obstacles that could prevent that from happening, however. For one, with a full roster, they can’t sign him at the moment.
Though if a roster spot does become available and the Suns experiment of not playing with a traditional point guard fails, they may look to add one. Be that as it may, it may not be Wall and there is a reason why he hasn’t played in the NBA in nearly a year.
NBA stars take plenty of criticism when they fail to live up to expectations and these seven stars all have something to prove in the 2023–24 season.
Considering his injury history, he is a shell of his old all-star self, even though he is only 33 years old. He might get the opportunity to work out for the Suns in the event that a roster spot does open up and potentially sign a 10-day contract. That is a lot of ifs, and it seems more likely than not that the Suns pass on a chance to reunite Beal and Wall. Still, Wall is definitely interested if they are.
