Ronnie Price plans to give the Suns the first chance to pursue him in free agency.
"I won’t listen to any other teams until I talk to Phoenix first," Price said. With Brandon Knight (hernia) and Eric Bledsoe (knee surgery) both returning from injuries, perhaps Price could stick around as emergency backcourt insurance. Regardless, the veteran's next contract certainly won't be a priority for a rebuilding Suns team with a ton of work to do. Apr 25 - 1:53 PM

Date:

Ronnie Price hit just 4-of-9 shots and committed seven turnovers in Tuesday's loss to the Hawks, but also had 14 points, three rebounds, four assists and four steals.

He should start at PG the rest of the way with Brandon Knight out for the season and the seven turnovers weren't typical of Price. He's a very borderline fantasy option, even with his starting gig secure.
Apr 5 - 11:46 PM

Ronnie Price started at PG for Phoenix on Sunday, posting two points on 1-of-5 shooting with three assists, two rebounds and three turnovers.

Brandon Knight (hernia) is out of commission and it seems doubtful that he'll return this season, leaving the starting job to Price. The veteran played 32 minutes tonight and he'll chip in decent 3-pointers, assists and steals, with solid FT shooting, but he's just a late-round option with a low ceiling.
Apr 3 - 9:11 PM

Ronnie Price started on Friday against the Wizards with five points, four rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Brandon Knight (groin) is probably out for the year, but Price just isn't good even with all that playing time. He's only worth a look if you're desperate.
Apr 2 - 1:34 AM

Ronnie Price will start for Brandon Knight (hernia) against the Wizards on Friday.

The Suns went with John Jenkins in the last game without Knight, but they'll go back to Price here. Archie Goodwin will also be the backup point guard, so Jenkins might not play much tonight. Expect Devin Booker to run the offense a ton.
Apr 1 - 8:52 PM

Ronnie Price (food poisoning) will play Friday vs. the Kings.

Price sat out shootaround, and he could be limited tonight making him a risky guy to deploy in most settings.
Mar 25 - 9:15 PM

Ronnie Price only registered two missed shots and one foul in 13 minutes on Saturday.

He'll be a reserve now with Brandon Knight back. Drop Price in almost all leagues.
Mar 13 - 1:07 AM

Ronnie Price will come off the bench on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

Brandon Knight will join the starting lineup, so it's officially time to cut Price in most formats. The veteran had a nice run, but the Suns will be focusing on developing their young talent the rest of the way.
Mar 12 - 7:02 PM

Ronnie Price played 38 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Thursday, finishing with eight points, five assists, three boards, two steals and two 3-pointers.

Brandon Knight (groin) returned to action and played 25 minutes, so it's possible that Price could still have a significant role for a little while longer. It makes sense for the Suns to give some of their younger guys like Archie Goodwin some more run, so Price's outlook for the rest of the season still isn't great. He should be treated as a low-end guard in deeper leagues.
Mar 11 - 12:44 AM

Ronnie Price scored 11 points with six assists and two steals vs. the Knicks on Wednesday, logging 34 minutes in a blowout loss in Phoenix.

Price shot 4-of-7 from the field with three 3-pointers and owners should enjoy the production while it lasts. With Brandon Knight (groin) nearing a return, Price's available minutes at PG are about to be severely challenged. Owners should begin scouring the waiver wire for a suitable replacement.
Mar 10 - 12:05 AM

Ronnie Price played 35 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday, scoring 11 points with three 3-pointers, three boards, two assists and two turnovers.

Price dealt with some foul trouble for the third time in his past four games, but today it wasn't severe enough to cripple his playing time. Brandon Knight (groin) has no clear return date and Price's starting PG job looks safe, so he's worth a glance if you need a cheap source of 3-pointers, assists, and especially steals.
Mar 6 - 7:06 PM

Ronnie Price played 45 minutes against the Magic on Friday with a career-high five steals, adding 14 points, five rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and one block.

He was really good in the first half with 22 minutes. Price actually didn't guard Elfrid Payton to begin the game and it looks like coach Earl Watson is trying to figure out how to use him in different spots. He's still only a deep-league add with this nice line.
Mar 4 - 9:50 PM

Ronnie Price scored two points with one rebound, two assists, two steals and five fouls in 19 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

He was torched early on defense and that's been a trend for the Suns with their slow starts. Price's scoring output has dropped in each of his last three games while he's made just 3-of-14 from the field in his last two. The 32-year-old guard doesn't appear to be a part of the team's plans going forward, so he's only a hold in deep leagues.
Mar 3 - 10:06 PM

Ronnie Price hit just 2-of-10 shots for four points, five rebounds and three assists in Tuesday's loss.

He started and played 29 minutes, but was 0-for-7 from downtown. He did have a steal, a block and one turnover, but struggled otherwise. He had scored in double figures in his previous four games and as long as he's starting, he's worth a deep-league look.
Mar 1 - 9:48 PM

Ronnie Price scored 12 points with three assists and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

This is probably a more fair expectation on Price going forward. He should split the minutes at point guard at least until Brandon Knight (groin) can return and he is signed for the season. He's more of a 14-team point guard right now.
