    Neither team is exactly stocked with good players. That can't hurt their chances to stick.

    Like to see some of the undrafted men get some attention and then some minutes!

    Re: Chris Babb to Phoenix, WIll Clyburn to Sacramento

    Fred must know somebody down in the Phoenix front office that we've gotten players placed there in consecutive years. I'm kind of disappointed to see Clyburn end up with a mess of a franchise like Sacramento. Maybe there is more opportunity for him in all that chaos, but if he catches on with the team, he strikes me as someone whose early career would really benefit from being around a solid veteran core.

    DG + Babb backcourt combo should make the summer league relevant for ISU fans.

    Heard the coach in Phoenix really likes Iowa State.

    Not sure if Jamal wants to go there with Sherrif Joe still around.

    Don't kill my pipe dream, 4 generations of Cyclones on the same team would actually make me care about the NBA's regular season.

    Hearing that Lucious still might sign with somebody and to stay tuned.

    McGee, probably not right away as he's recovering from tearing his meniscus.

    Yes, we all know Hornacek is the coach now. He wasn't last year when DG was signed. That's what makes me think somebody in Phoenix is a good buddy from Fred's Asst. GM days. It would make sense that the Phoenix and Minnesota front offices are close, considering the Suns were willing to take Beasley and Wes Johnson of the T-Wolves' hands.

    Re: Chris Babb to Phoenix, WIll Clyburn to Sacramento

    I think Clyburn and Babb are both going to have a great shot to impress. I had forgot about McGee or I'd be excited to see him play too. Fred's system is going to put any ISU kids at an advantage to hit the ground running when they get this chance. The two of them have NBA bodies for their position and can hit the NBA three already.

    Re: Chris Babb to Phoenix, WIll Clyburn to Sacramento

    FYI--Both Sacramento and Phoenix are participating in the Vegas summer league, which starts July 12th. They stream all of the action online and have apps, but it costs $15 for the entire summer. HERE is the schedule. I like the spot for both guys particularly Babb as Phoenix has a need for a backup guard type depending on what they do in free agency. Will be fun to watch.
