Warriors executive jokes about how team keeps signing former Suns
The Phoenix-Golden State pipeline is apparently a very strong one.
After the team’s signing of ex-Phoenix Suns lottery pick Dragan Bender, Golden State Warriors assistant GM Kirk Lacob joked about the pattern.
“We’re into former Suns,” said Lacob, per Logan Murdock of NBC Sports. “I don’t know if you noticed that.”
In addition to Bender, the Warriors also have on their roster Marquese Chriss, who was Phoenix’s other lottery pick in 2016. Furthermore, Suns great Steve Nash continues to work in Golden State as a player development consultant.
The Warriors’ fondness for ex-Suns actually runs even deeper than that too, and it’s probably about time that somebody noticed the trend.
