The Phoenix Suns are getting off to a pretty slow start in the 2011-12 NBA season. And they look particularly weak in the shooting guard position. Jared Dudley is a solid enough bench player, but he can't be a starter and expect to put up big numbers and sustain that type of effort for an entire season. Shannon Brown has had a disastrous start, and has a lot of work to do if he plans on logging big minutes anytime soon.
So Phoenix went into the well and worked out former All-Star Michael Redd, and it looks like they're ready to sign him. Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic has more.
Michael Redd, who has a scary knee history, worked out for the Suns at US Airways Center on Tuesday, and the Suns are expected to sign the 32-year-old today to address their need for scoring and shooting.
Redd likely would not play immediately as he learns the Suns' system and works into playing shape.
