Babby: Suns may not use cap space this summer



PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Suns will have salary cap “flexibility” in the offseason but won’t be out spending money just to spend it.

Lon Babby, president of basketball operations, says that there’s “a distinct possibility” that the team might hold off with any major spending another year if the right situation doesn’t come up this summer.

Babby also said that both the organization and Steve Nash are open to the possibility of the star point guard’s return for a ninth straight season with Phoenix, although that will depend on a number of factors involving Nash’s and the team’s desires. Nash is a free agent and says he will explore what options he has around the NBA.
