A person with knowledge of the situation says the Phoenix Suns have decided not to re-sign center Alex Len and point guard Elfrid Payton [url=http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-connor-brickley-jersey]Authentic Connor Brickley Jersey[/url] , clearing some $10 million in salary cap space as the team prepares to make a run at free agents.
The person asked to remain anonymous because those intentions have not been made public. Free agency begins in the NBA on Sunday.
The moves were expected.
The 7-foot-1 Len, who comes from the Ukraine, was the fifth overall pick in the 2013 draft after one season at Maryland. He played in 335 games over four seasons with Phoenix, averaging 7.2 points and 6.5 rebounds per game, never becoming the dominant big man the Suns had hoped he would be. Last season, Len appeared in 69 games [url=http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-bo-horvat-jersey]Bo Horvat Jersey[/url] , averaging 8.5 points and 7.5 rebounds.
Acquired from Orlando for a second-round pick at last season’s trade deadline, Payton averaged 11.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 6.2 assists in 19 games with Phoenix but shot 44 percent from the field, 20 percent from 3-point range.
The Suns’ decision not to re-sign the players first was reported by azcentral (The Arizona Republic).
RALEIGH, N.C. — The Tampa Bay Lightning have entered a playoff mode before the postseason and there’s still something to play for.
That will be the case in the regular-season finale Saturday night against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.
This chase for the top seed in the Eastern Conference has put the Lightning in a playoff state of mind.
“I think it’s good for us to kind of stay in that mentality,” Tampa Bay left winger Alex Killorn said.
The Hurricanes have been on the outside of the playoff picture [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-nicklas-backstrom-jersey]Nicklas Backstrom Jersey[/url] , but they would like to take a victory into the offseason.
“We got to do it right,” Carolina forward Sebastian Aho said. “It’s just the last game. We want to play it like we want (to). Just do right, the way we want to do it.?”
The Lightning (54-23-4) are still striving for the top spot in the conference, something that can be achieved by winning the Atlantic Division. Tampa Bay leads the Boston Bruins by two points. The Bruins have two games remaining, going to Ottawa on Saturday night and finishing Sunday night at home against the Florida Panthers.
Tampa Bay has won three consecutive games after the 7-5 home victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night.
After defeating Boston 4-0 on Tuesday, Tampa Bay had the benefit of its final two games against non-playoff teams — Buffalo and Carolina.
Tampa Bay center Tyler Johnson said winning the division is the short-term objective.
“That’s our main goal and really the only thing we’re focusing on is how can we do that [url=http://www.officialsenators.com/authentic-adidas-bobby-ryan-jersey]Bobby Ryan Jersey[/url] , and the first step is just playing the right way and doing what we need to do,” Johnson said.
The Hurricanes (35-35-11) carry a three-game losing streak into the game, with each of those outcomes a one-goal defeat.
“We’ll play better on Saturday,” Hurricanes center Elias Lindholm said.
It could be an interesting offseason for the Hurricanes, who underwent a midseason ownership change that already has resulted in the reassignment of now-former general manager Ron Francis.
Carolina is locked out of the playoffs for the ninth straight season, marking the longest active playoff drought for any NHL team.
Aho said the Hurricanes have been a step behind in recent games against teams vying for playoff spots or postseason positioning.
“I think we weren’t quite there [url=http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com/kareem-hunt-jersey]Authentic Kareem Hunt Jersey[/url] ,” Aho said. “I mean, we didn’t have the same level.”
The Hurricanes did have a few uplifting moments this week, including the first goal of the season in 32 games for defenseman Klas Dahlbeck.
“It’s a reward for staying with it, being a good pro,” Carolina coach Bill Peters said. “Good to see him take advantage of the opportunity.”
Aho scored for the third time six games in Thursday night’s loss at Philadelphia. That puts him with a team-leading 29 goals this season.
The Hurricanes are expected to go with veteran goalie Cam Ward in what could be his final game with the franchise. He has a 22-14-4 record this season.
Tampa Bay won by 5-1 and 5-4 scores against Carolina in previous matchups this season.
