Lord knows I love this man, but he is a head case. That said, I think he will get to truly play at his natural position (the 4) on the Suns, and he hasn't had that opportunity since at least Miami, arguably not even there so he hasn't had a chance to get slotted reliably at the 4 since he joined the league. He doesn't play defense, so he's perfect for the Suns. ;-) But I would have hope that Gentry could coach Beasley, and something something miracle training staff something (I know nothing about the Suns' training staff but they were mentioned in EVERY blog post I read about this deal, so...in fact, almost everything here is just me repeating other people's blogs and opinions! But I do agree with them.)
... I'd like to see Malone come to L.A., if he can keep his ego in check and understand he's the third scoring option -- and that he'll be counted on more for defense and boards than for baskets. But, yeah, Malone's in good shape and works hard.
