Phoenix’s fierce move continues.
‘ESPN’ reported on the 12th (Korean time) that the Phoenix Suns had signed Terrence Ross.
Phoenix has parted ways with troubled owner Robert Xarber and recently hired Matt Ischvia as new owner. Owner Ishbia, who also played basketball at NCAA Michigan State University, is the president of United Wholesale Mortgage, a real estate-related company.
The owner of Ishvia, who is putting a lot of effort into managing the NBA team, has already attracted a lot of attention for $4 billion. Gaining momentum, Ishbia made a splash on his first day of work, successfully recruiting superstar Kevin Durant.
Phoenix’s rampage doesn’t stop with Durant’s acquisition. Phoenix, which acquired Oklahoma City forward Darius Basley in the trade market, even embraced Ross, one of the big catches in the buyout market. 메이저놀이터
Ross’s recruitment is also known to have been attributed to the owner, Ishvia, who is full of basketball love. Initially, it was predicted that Ross would move to Dallas rather than Phoenix. However, ESPN said, “Terrence Ross will sign with Phoenix after owner Matt Ishbia and coach Monty Williams participated in the recruitment match.”
In the process of recruiting Durant, Phoenix’s squad depth was thinned by the departure of Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, and Jay Crowder. Recruiting Ross is a choice that can add a lot of strength to the team.
Ross has strengths in athleticism and shooting, and is a scorer who excels at tough shots. A player who has continued his NBA career mainly as a sixth man rather than a starter. Ross, who is hard to stop once he explodes, also has a record of 51 points against the Clippers on January 26, 2014.
This season, his overall record went downhill as his position in Orlando, where many opportunities are given to young players, declined, but his 3-point success rate was on the rise at 38.1%. Recently, they were looking for a new team after agreeing to a buyout with Orlando. With Ross joining, Phoenix has been able to further increase scoring in the bench section.
