Suns Interested in Alonzo Gee

From WFNY:

Late last week, Fox 8′s John Telich reported that “at least three teams” were interested in Gee with the Suns being joined by the Minnesota Timberwolves and Detroit Pistons. Brendan Bowers of Stepien Rules followed this up by reporting that the Suns were in fact in the lead for Gee’s services, set to offer the athletic wing approximately $4 million per year with the length of the deal unknown.

Two things: (1) Gee is a restricted free agent, so the Cavs will have the opportunity to match whatever offers other teams make, and (2) $4 million per year sounds a little high, but reasonable. I would bring Gee back for $12 million over three years or whatever the Suns offer looks like.
