Re: Suns News: Offseason

It's childish. The guy got paid a lot and he chose not to play for the team during the bubble. I don't see how Sarver was the one doing him wrong. People just don't like getting traded. Regardless of Sarver, PHX made him better by throwing him a life preserver. Expressing gratitude is the professio...

Re: Suns News: Offseason

I think this speaks to the article yesterday discussing how he was frustrated about the players attitudes while he was here. I appreciate the fact that he didn't speak publicly about his frustrations while he was one the team, but it makes me feel better about the fact that we traded him when we did...

Re: Around the League: Offseason

Now we will see what Len can do with good guards and a good coach. This will be by far the best situation of his career. I'm actually happy for him, although I don't expect him to be the Ibaka/Gasol replacement Toronto needs. There was next to no chance he was coming back hear, but I actually thoug...

Re: Suns News: Offseason

His comments about his time in Phoenix also made me realize he was probably never staying. I thought he loved it here, but that’s now exactly how he responded. What was this last year-plus in Phoenix like for you? It was up and down, of course. It was a lot of uncertainty for me as a player. Obviou...

Re: Free Agency Thread

Crowder is a great signing. He’s exactly the type of player I wanted to replace Oubre. Cheaper replacement with far higher value compared to cost, lower usage, smarter on defense, toughness with a good work ethic and decent/above average from 3. It’s pretty clear the type of team Jones is trying to...

Re: NBA DRAFT NIGHT 2020

Ayton has spoken multiple times about wanting to be a 4–could he be the PF with Smith taking Center?

Re: Free Agency Thread

I wonder if we even had discussions with Wood? I would have loved him on the Suns. Anyone else getting a sinking feeling that adding Paul is going to be the only noteworthy move this off-season? Yes. Especially after the suns employees news today. ??? What news? https://mobile.twitter.com/DuaneRank...

Re: Free Agency Thread

We need to win or contend like all hell in the next couple of years to beat and stay ahead of LAC, LAL, DEN, and DAL. These soft ass mle prospects just wont get that done. Taking a big swing would be a big difference maker. Sign and trade Saric and Baynes + draft picks for Hayward. Then we discuss ...

Re: Free Agency Thread

Free agency begins in 8 hours. If we don’t do anything in the trade market, and assuming we re-sign Saric and Carter, we have 5 spots to fill. My guess(which will surely be wrong) MLE: Paul Millsap on a 2 year deal(2nd year player option) BAE: Alec Burks on a 2 year deal(2nd year player option) The...

Re: Suns News: Offseason

Zach Harper of the Athletic has tidbit about Evan Fournier trying to get traded to the Suns, Clippers or Nuggets in his power rankings piece. I don't have a subscription, but I saw it on the hoopshype rumors. Interesting, I’ll look it up. We don’t have the contracts to do that though... Edit: that’...

Re: 2020 Suns Draft Grade

I think we're making too much out of the backup PG situation. If we get a DJ Augustin, cool. But if we're running a .5 offense and have bubble Dario running things, then Cam, Carter and even Smith become spot up shooters. Book and CP3 will be staggered as well. I think backup 2/3 is probably where ...

Re: Who is Jalen Smith?

His demeanor, parts of his game (and glasses) remind me a little of Bo Outlaw.

Ya very well could be. We shall see what we do in free agency. I don’t know that I’ve ever been right about what James Jones is thinking though, haha
Me either, obviously. Man, I should not pay attention to pre-draft information with this GM--it just kills me.

Re: Suns News: Offseason

It feels like we still need to improve the roster significantly without any real means of doing it the next two years. I am really really hoping all of that talk about Paul bringing a key player with him was real and we can fit the finances in. It better be, because if not, I think the Suns long te...

#TheFellas? Good god, the marketing department is so lost without Kelly Oubre.
They have to make a concerted effort to rebrand the players to something besides the valley Boyz.
