Default Suns may let Robin Lopez become free agent

When the Suns selected Robin Lopez 15th overall in the 2008 draft, he was considered the franchise’s center of the future.

His future with the Suns now appears it will be left to July free agency. The Suns have until Wednesday to come to a contract extension with Lopez but that appears unlikely. Lopez would then become a restricted free agent on July 1, meaning the Suns still could match any other team’s offer sheet to him.

Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby said he has had several discussions with Lopez’s agent, Arn Tellem, to inquire about an extension.

“We have talked to see if there was any common ground worth pursuing and I’d say it’s unlikely at this time,” Babby said. “It’s been a completely amicable process. There really isn’t any basis for doing a deal and we’ll look at it again in the summer.”

– Reported by Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic

More likely Robin Lopez won't be a Sun next year. Some other team will overpay Robin and the Suns are smart enough not to match that offer. I prefer Frye to play the back up Center. I was hoping we could trade Robin for a late 1st round pick or early 2nd round pick but it looks like it ain't happening. Our only hope is that a contending team need a backup center who plays defense off the bench. Other than than, Robin is gone this offseason.

He's been disappointing and inconsistent, to say the least.

Losing him isn't the biggest deal for the Suns, I'd say.

If we can keep him for cheap, we should bring him back. Not a huge loss if he goes.
