There is hope that Yaroslav Korolev will stay in the states if he manages to steal a spot on the Phoenix Suns roster. Since P.J Brown hasn't shown much interest in playing another year, Phoenix is looking to other players to fill that spot. I am a little torn that Korolev might end up with the Suns but the Kid deserves a chance. He will audition next week.
Here is a piece of the article w/ the link;
With free agent P.J. Brown in no hurry to sign, the Suns are looking at other frontcourt options. Today, they will work out NBDL rebounding champion Elton Brown, 6-foot-8 veteran Michael Ruffin, ex-Sun Zarko Cabarkapa and ex-Arizona State star Mario Bennett, 34.
Vitaly Potapenko, an 11-year pro who is back in shape, will visit Thursday, and wide body Mike Sweetney, center Brian Skinner and 20-year-old wing Yaroslav Korolev are expected next week. Phoenix scouted Esteban Batista in the FIBA Americas Championship and has not ruled out Pat Burke.
