Ricky Rubio, Aron Baynes, Elie Okobo and rookie Jalen Lecque didn’t make the initial July 7 trip with the Phoenix Suns to Orlando and still haven’t practiced with the team as of Sunday at Walt Disney World Resort, sources have informed The Arizona Republic.

Ricky Rubio, Aron Baynes, Elie Okobo and rookie Jalen Lecque didn’t make the initial July 7 trip with the Phoenix Suns to Orlando and still haven’t practiced with the team as of Sunday at Walt Disney World Resort, sources have informed The Arizona Republic. The Suns were scheduled to have off Monday and return to practice Tuesday. They will play the first of their three exhibition game Thursday against Utah.
There’s still a mystery as to whether Aron Baynes and Ricky Rubio are at Walt Disney World Resort. Devin Booker, Kelly Oubre Jr., Dario Saric, Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jevon Carter, Ty Jerome, Cameron Payne, Cheick Diallo, Frank Kaminsky III and Ayton are in the Orlando bubble based on photos, videos, Zoom media interviews, radio interviews, tweets and Instagram posts.

Two Suns players test positive for COVID-19

Two Phoenix Suns players have tested positive for coronavirus, sources have informed The Arizona Republic. The positive tests led to Suns temporarily shutting down voluntary workouts at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum, sources say. Mikal Bridges, Elie Okobo, Frank Kaminsky III, Dario Saric, Jevon Carter, Aron Baynes, Jalen Lecque and Cheick Diallo have participated in them based on a video the team posted earlier this month in their “Don’t Sleep on Basketball” series. The players were having workouts at the arena Tuesday morning. There has been a notable increase in COVID-19 cases in Arizona.

These days, Hickman, now 72, dissects Suns box scores and online video from his Upper Marlboro, Md., home. He loves Jevon Carter’s rugged playing style. He thought Aron Baynes was a pleasant surprise. He knew a young team anchored by 23-year-old Devin Booker and 21-year-old Deandre Ayton would fall into traps of inconsistency. But he believes the Suns are “gonna be good” because of Williams’ patience and leadership. Hickman is most proud of how Williams carries himself on the bench and in public. “Maybe people in Phoenix were expecting miracle work,” Hickman said. “But it doesn’t work like that. So I try to keep him upbeat and say, ‘Monty, take your time. You’ve got to build it right.’ …

Clippers eyeing Aron Baynes?

“They take up the same space on the court. The Clippers simply don’t play them together,” the Eastern Conference executive said. “Montrezl is getting 29 minutes a game, so even if the Clippers added on another center, where would those minutes come? They would need a floor-spacer.” In part, that’s why the Clippers have had their eye on Aron Baynes of the Phoenix Suns (17-24), though they are still looking to make a playoff push, just two games behind the eighth-place Memphis Grizzlies (20-22). Baynes is a strong, experienced defender who can space the floor. Giving up Zubac for Baynes could make sense if the Clippers reinvest in Harrell, but would the Suns have any interest in Zubac’s four-year, $28.5 million deal as a backup for Deandre Ayton?

In passing conversation, The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie casually proposed a Phoenix Suns/Clippers swap of Aron Baynes for Ivica Zubac. Baynes is believed to be a prime target for the Clippers. Zubac’s four-year, $28.5 million salary would work straight-up for the Phoenix center, but the Suns may not want to take on a long-term salary for a true center to back up Deandre Ayton. “They would need a third team,” one Eastern Conference executive said.
