Multiple reports have circulated regarding the Phoenix Suns’ desire to acquire the services of Cavaliers free agent small forward Alonzo Gee.

Late last week, Fox 8′s John Telich reported that “at least three teams” were interested in Gee with the Suns being joined by the Minnesota Timberwolves and Detroit Pistons. Brendan Bowers of Stepien Rules followed this up by reporting that the Suns were in fact in the lead for Gee’s services, set to offer the athletic wing approximately $4 million per year with the length of the deal unknown.

Gee, who saw his game drastically improve between the 2010-11 season and this past year, started in 31 contests and averaged 10.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game. His energyoff of the bench played a large role in the team’s early-season success.

The Suns current general manager is Lance Blanks, formerly of the Cleveland Cavaliers front office under Danny Ferry. Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant has stated that the team expects to make Gee a part of their future with many in the Cleveland media expecting a multi-year offer with at least a qualifying offer being made. A restricted free agent, the Cavaliers would have the right to match any offer Gee receives in the offseason.
