The Suns will have max cap space to play with this offseason so long as they make offers before re-signing Eric Bledsoe.
This might be Phoenix's last chance at max room for a while, as the Morris brothers and Dragic could all be receiving new deals soon. Dragic in particular could be awfully expensive if he chooses to opt out of his modest player option in the 2015 offseason worth $7.5 million, which you would think he'll do.
While this might be Phoenix's last chance at signing a max player, Bledsoe is a franchise building block. There will be other ways to recruit premium talent while keeping him on board if no max player fits what Phoenix wants to do.
That being said, it would still make sense for the Suns to throw their name in the hat for whichever max players are out there. Part of becoming a premium destination is having the best possible players consider you, so at least going after a guy like Carmelo Anthony and creating future inroads would make sense.
As for actually signing Anthony, though? Dave King at SB Nation blog Bright Side of the Sun weighs in with his opinion:
I really, really, really hope that answer isn't Carmelo Anthony. His game is the antithesis of the current Suns. He shoots midrange shots, doesn't play team ball and doesn't play defense. I suppose the right coach can ride Anthony deep into a playoff run, as George Karl did in Denver. But it's more likely that Anthony's diva personality would drive a wedge into what Jeff Hornacek has been building here in Phoenix. Please don't, Ryan McD!
Whether Anthony would be a good fit in Phoenix is debatable, but regardless, Phoenix should ask for a seat at Anthony's table this offseason. He's an elite talent without question, and his presence next to Bledsoe and Dragic would almost certainly make Phoenix a serious contender.
There are lots of different routes Phoenix can take, but again, simply being mentioned as a top contender in free agency can pay dividends even if Phoenix has no interest in Anthony.
