Re: Game Day: Suns (28-20) @ Hawks (20-27), Fri 2/2/24

Yeah, we're in a tough spot due to the poor roster construction. We have just short of a thousand small shooting guards, which puts us at a defensive disadvantage. So as much as I would love to be able to run Book with a point guard, it becomes extremely hard to do when you want to have one of Grays...

Re: Game Day: Suns (28-20) @ Hawks (20-27), Fri 2/2/24

I'm curious why so many still think we need a pg. Again we have a 130 offensive rating with our starting lineup…Do we realize how good that is? It’s best offense of all time good and it’s not close. I mean that's great if that lineup could play 48 minutes every night. It would also be great if that...

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

What happened to overpaying our own free agents (such as Bazley or others) so we could hold on to tradeable contracts/salary slots? That rumor just went by the wayside. Umm, we signed better players for much less money. That seems like the more optimal strategy than overpaying scrubs for theoretica...

Re: 2023 General Offseason/PostSeason League News

Something tells me this is going to be one of those situations where everyone acts like things are cool but there's underlying tension that's palpable. Hopefully it derails their season. https://twitter.com/ESPNNBA/status/1681688922898792450?s=20 So let me get this straight: they gave away draft ca...

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

I am holding out hope that Killian Hayes falls out of the rotation in Detroit, and the Pistons try to get something for him before he hits free agency. He makes more than we can bring in with the TPE. You're right; I was still thinking of his salary last season. He gets quite a bump in this final y...

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

I just look at this Payne trade as, we would rather have the combination of multiple 2nd round picks, a trade exception, and $26m in savings than Payne. That's probably right. I don't care super much about the $26m because it isn't my money, but the picks and the flexibility of the trade exception ...

Also watch New Orleans with their payroll and Kira Lewis Jr. If the Clippers get ravaged by injuries, maybe they'll make an L-Tax move (Plumlee, Boston Jr., Preston).

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

Problem is the picks weren’t part of the Payne trade. They are separate and we could have kept Payne and acquired the picks. It was definitely a straight salary dump and we gave up a 2nd round pick and 5.7 million to do it. Thank you, Spilt. The Suns were smart to release the news of the Magic trad...

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

Yeah, if we win it all, I don't care about future seasons. But the FO still should. I care. I get everyone is desperate for a championship, but I prefer operating for sustained success (Spurs, Warriors) instead of going the L.A. Rams route. I realize most fans just want a championship no matter wha...

I wonder why the Suns didn't have Saben Lee play in the summer league. I think he needs it more than Goodwin did.

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

We didn't get a pick for trading Payne. We gave up a pick and got a conditional pick in return. I agree with INF that it's dangerous to not have any players with bird rights or any players/tradeable contracts making between the minimum and the maximum. And if they don't use the TPE to keep that sal...

Re: 2023 General Offseason/PostSeason League News

Let’s be completely honest here Lebron’s titles all have asterisks Over OKC in a lockout season, they beat a bunch of youngsters with very little experience. Over Spurs they win on a Kawhi missed free throw. Over the Warriors, they’re gifted with Draymond ejection, which Lebron baited him into. Wit...

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

Ya I don’t care about salary dumps on guys in the back third of the roster…though we probably should have just not guaranteed Payne’s salary if we were going to straight dump him. Some of Payne's salary was already guaranteed, so I don't think they were keen on paying him to not play for us. And an...

Re: 2023 Suns General Offseason/PostSeason News Thread

Why are we assuming we could trade Payne for anything? I'm not. I just said the move was disappointing. Now you can argue Payne is more valuable than what they traded him for..I think that's legit but to act like a trade exception/picks/flexibility isn't what the suns have in mind is nonsense. To a...

But he’s a better player and I still don’t see why the Pacers would want Payne over him.
In the reported trade talks, Payne wasn't going to Indiana.
