The first day of the Suns’ rookie/free agent camp Wednesday had the makings of 2004 all over again. Amaré Stoudemire was once again attacking the basket, guard Romain Sato was looking to showcase his skills for the front office like he did in pre-draft workouts two years ago and Maciej Lampe was once again sporting the purple and orange.
The youngest member of the camp, the 21-year-old Lampe is looking to rejoin a team that saw his services in a combined 37 games over two seasons. Originally coming to Phoenix as part of the blockbuster deal that sent Stephon Marbury and Penny Hardaway to New York in early 2004, the 6-11 big man averaged 3.8 ppg and 2.1 rpg for the Suns before departing for New Orleans with Casey Jacobsen and Jackson Vroman in exchange for Jim Jackson and a future draft pick a year ago January.
