Phoenix Suns claim Luis Scola


The Phoenix Suns have claimed Luis Scola off the waiver wire. He will be reunited with former Rockets point guard Goran Dragic.

Scola will continue to start, and with the Suns staff he should be able to play well into his mid 30’s. The Suns have some how found the fountain of youth. Guys like Grant Hill, Shaq and others have went to Phoenix and been able to stay healthy after having multiple injury plagued seasons prior to joining the Suns.

Scola will play along side of Marcin Gortat, Michael Beasley and Goran Dragic. It has also been reported that the Suns are hard after O.J Mayo and former Rocket Courtney Lee. Lots of things will be different next season with no Steve Nash or Grant Hill. The Suns may not win a lot of games, but they sure will be fun to watch. Luis will continue to play his game just as he did in Houston. Phoenix has been known for giving their all on offense, but not much on defense. That will be perfect for the way Scola plays.

Scola may never win a championship, but his career will last longer in Phoenix if he stays. Their training staff is second to none. So long Scola, i wish you the best in the remainder of your career. Hopefully you won’t torch Houston to much next season.
