Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

Andrew Gaze All Stars. Time should work for me. I’m in a keeper league where players are eligible to be keepers once you get to a certain point in the draft (we do round 7). Then you can work our what penalty there is to keep them for subsequent years.

Hope Monty's taking notes:

His passing is obviously terrific but his shooting form didn't look great even on those shots that went in. (I'd be happy if he kept swishing ugly-looking jumpers all season though!)

Re: Phx-Suns.net Vet League is up and running

I'm not too fussed about turnovers, but would slightly lean towards keeping them. Because of time zones, I'm always a bit iffy to make the draft live so would prefer not to go to an auction format.

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

It's so weird to think that the same front office would think that Terry Rozier and Ricky Rubio were good candidates for the same roster spot and role on the same team. I mean, regardless of whether you like Rozier or Rubio better, they are so different as players. I think they were just going thro...

He'll be fine in Milwaukee. Great situation for him to just be a role player

Re: Free Agent Targets

I don't think anyone is taking Jackson without getting back a future asset, possibly in addition to either Melton or Okobo. In this case we're taking on the additional salary, and a significant amount. Also, adding Okobo (who I'd happily include) or Melton (who I'd be reluctant to) defeats the purp...

Re: #6 pick to Philly for Saric, #11 pick

Now this move I like. Position of need, good shooter, good age and we still have a pick in a spot where we could get a good player - especially given our heavy investment in scouting!!! My only query on Saric is around his defense but that is not picking

Re: Warren traded to Pacers

It would be nice to have Suns trade that you like straight away, rather than hope like crazy that it's part of some grander plan, which it never is. They sure know how to put a dampener on draft day.

I think this is just posturing and/or misdirection. All of those assets would absolutely be on the table for the right deal.
There is also a reasonable chance we have put the feelers out and not had any decent deals proposed

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

I'm going to have a tough time warming to a Russell signing - seems a lot more style over substance. I'd be very worried about anyone outside of him and Booker getting enough shots, and the defense as well, of course. But I agree that there's a lot of things pointing to him being here next year.

A year ago Josh would have picked up an offensive foul trying to get around the security guard. His game is really starting to mature.

Re: 2019 NBA Draft Lottery

My prediction is #4 - which guarantees us anything but #4. Obviously hoping for a top 2 pick but just keen to see what we land with and start thinking about what that might lead to. Fingers crossed for some more good draft luck!

If Sarver can stay the hell out of the way we may be half a chance of doing something. I think Monty will be a solid coach which is a step up from what we've had

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Player development seems to be an area we can make fairly big gains fairly quickly. We have players who for a variety of reasons haven't developed as quickly or as much as expected...Jackson, bender etc etc
If we can properly develop that players we already have it would really help

Call me a cynic, but "leveraging our partnership with Steward" sounds like code for "we got a cheaper deal".

Wow, losing Aaron Nelson is huge. One of the last "great" things about this franchise. We have sunk so low.
Agreed. Pretty hard to see this as anything but a negative. And pretty hard to believe they will get someone better, or even as good, given the team's recent history.

Thanks all and sorry for not seeing this thread earlier. It certainly was a nerve-wracking grand final, game on the line all the way to the final match.

Re: Game Day: Suns (19-62) @ Mavericks (32-48), Tues 4/9/19

Amazing effort by Crawford, well done to him.
Also a 39yo being the lone bright spot to finish the season seems somehow appropriate
