Default Marcus Banks!

This guy is a legit back up point guard, he use to be the back up to steve nash in phx and avg 12 ppg. i member i use to watch him and his defense for a point guard is better than both jose and roko. he can also really shot the 3 point ball really good and run the team. DO NOT sleep on this guy i'm certian that he will take over the back up point guard spot in no time which will probably leave roko to only get couple of minutes and as for Soloman he's noteven going to play anymore ...... This is more or less the steal of the deal and his contract isn't that bad for a decent defensive back up point guard with experience!

If anyone use to watch the Suns back in the day you probably would of seen him play he is legit man ill tell ya!

I don't think he can shoot. I remember for Minny he stepped in and was a solid scorer/distributor and could likely hold down our backup PG role. But I don't want him to. How can you not play Roko?

I know Marcus Banks is a good PG. I have wanted Toronto to sign him a few years back (against some peoples wills and opinions) but I just can't see him getting consistent minutes in Toronto.

The faster we get rid of Kapono and Banks the better.

I appreciate some of the optimism on here regarding Banks, but in all honestly, he hasn't done much his entire career so what makes you guys think that he will suddenly be a good rotation player?

He was given the opportunity in terms of minutes before.

He was given the opportunity in terms of getting a fresh start on new teams before.

I guess its hopeful to think he will produce for us, but being realistic, he will probably ride the bench, again.

first of all, last year is not "back in the day"

and second

it is not worth all the money we're having to pay him to be an undersized backup pg.
sure he's fast, but so what, his jumpshot is garbage and he has trouble finishing at the rim

Hopefully he can bring some defense and intangibles off the bench for us. But I have very low expectations and won't be disappointed if he doesn't play much. Triano will give him a shot no doubt, but I will stay optimistic until I actually see him play for the team. He said himself that he's looking to bring defense and toughness to the team at the guard spot, which is exactly what we need. Let's just wait and see tonight if he can guard Mo Williams.

From what I saw he didn't look that bad. That and one drive he had was pretty nice. Still his contract is terrible and we already have Jose as the starter with Roko Ukic as the backup so I don't know where he really fits with the team. I agree that the sooner we can unload his contract somewhere the better.
