The Suns are hosting a free agent workout on Wednesday that will include a couple former lottery picks in Stanley Johnson and Jabari Parker, league sources tell Chris Haynes of TNT and Bleacher Report (Twitter link). Guards Chasson Randle and Quinndary Weatherspoon will also participate, Haynes adds (Twitter links).
Phoenix has 10 free agents this offseason, which is tied with the Lakers for the most in the NBA. Checking in on some unrestricted free agents whose rights aren’t held by teams is a logical step for the Suns since they have could have a lot of moving parts. Teams are officially allowed to negotiate with free agents on Friday evening.
Johnson, 27, was the eighth pick of the 2015 draft. The forward has played for the Pistons, Pelicans, Raptors, Lakers and Spurs over his eight-year career. He played 30 games (15.6 MPG) for San Antonio in 2022/23, averaging 5.8 PPG, 3.2 RPG and 2.2 APG on .533/.450/.667 shooting.
Parker, 28, is another forward who was the second pick in 2014. He spent his first four seasons with the Bucks, but has bounced around in recent years, suiting up for the Bulls, Wizards, Hawks, Kings and Celtics since 2018. Parker was out of the NBA in ’22/23, last playing for Boston in January 2022.
Randle, 30, is a veteran point guard who went undrafted in 2015 after four years at Stanford. He has played a total of 119 NBA games across parts of four seasons with the Sixers, Knicks, Wizards, Warriors and Magic. His last regular season appearance was with Orlando back in May 2021.
In addition to the Suns, Weatherspoon also has a workout scheduled with the Wizards this week, per Haynes. The 26-year-old former second-round pick played 42 games with the Spurs and Warriors from 2019-22, mostly on two-way deals. He played in China last season.
