Gavin Edwards

Gavin Edwards could have been drafted, but now that he wasn't, the Suns are a reasonable place for him to play in summer league. Despite being a 6'9 centre without great athleticism, Edwards is forever running the court, and is a very good shot blocker. He does not rebound well enough, particularly defensively; it would be easy to cite this as being the occupational hazard of a shot blocker, and that does factor, but Edwards also doesn't try to get them. He's also not a particularly well defined offensive player, capable of finishing around the basket and hitting his foul shots, but without much of a jumpshot, ability to create, or finish against athleticism. He's a solid all around player, however, who might have made the roster were Gani Lawal and Dwayne Collins not also here.
