Re: Suns News: Week 23 3/18-3/24

Ugh, just when I was thinking I could maybe get some cheap Suns tickets when the play the Jazz on the 25th... now the arena will sell out and there will just be a sea of Jimmer BYU jerseys....

Re: Around the League: Week 23 3/18-3/24

I saw a lot of UNLV games when Wood was there and always liked him. He'd be a good pick-up for sure, low risk, high reward.

Honestly, he could be a Bender replacement if Bender leaves this summer.

Re: Suns News: Week 20 2/25-3/3

If we were to get the #1 pick, I think I would draft Zion and then throw however much money we possibly could at Kemba Walker. Or maybe it would be possible to work out a sign and trade with Charlotte?

Re: Suns News: Week 20 2/25-3/3

How about signing Russell (perhaps via S&T) and Randle. I bet we could be a playoff team just by adding two Lakers castoffs. :lol: Russell is gonna get paid....can’t see how we’d have space to sign both those guys unless Brooklyn foolishly took Tyler Johnson back in a S&T No way Brooklyn is letting...

Re: 2019 NBA Draft Thread

I like Zion a lot, but my biggest concern is how his game is going to translate to the NBA. Is he really going to be able to get all those dunks on NBA defenses and players? I wish I could watch him play a game where he needs to hit jumpshots, or create for himself at the end of the shot clock, or b...

Re: 2019 NBA Draft Thread

Ya Ja isn’t a combo guard. He’s averaging over 10 assists a game. I’d worry that he will take time to develop and that he’s not a great fit defensively with Booker, but he’s very interesting. For some reason, I don't think he'll take time to develop -- I just feel like he'll hit the ground running ...

Re: Around the League: Week 16 1/28-2/3

Wow, so the Mavs get KP for Jordan, Matthews, and Smith Jr.? And they also get Hardaway Jr. who I think isn't too bad of a player even if he is a bit overpayed.

I feel we could have offered a better package than that. Heck, maybe we did -- it is the Knicks....

Re: Around the League: Week 14 1/14-1/20

I'd make that AD trade at the very least to show Booker we're committed to putting talent around him. Otherwise, I think he'll be looking to get out next year if things continue as is. Book and AD are tight, we can send Ayton while he's still got a ton of upside, move TJs deal and maybe Bridges or ...

Re: Suns News: Week 14 1/14-1/20

I think we're undervaluing TJ quite a bit. Even with the flaws in his game, his production and maybe mostly his contract, make him really important to the team in my opinion. He's just a really, really, good deal, and having that combination of production and contract gives us an opportunity to surr...

Re: Around the League: Week 14 1/14-1/20

I would be just fine (ecstatic) with Mike Conley, assuming that we don't give up too many assets to get him. He's on the list of solid PGs who would really help this team, along with guys like Ricky Rubio, TJ McConnell, Jrue Holiday, etc. I am not concerned about his age or salary; in the current N...

Just a couple weeks ago, the Jazz games started to get blocked for me. So something changed such that they know where I'm watching from now.

Re: 2019 NBA Draft Thread

I think if we had to pick tomorrow, and our pick was #3 or below, I think Morant would be my current choice. You’re assuming Zion and RJ go 1-2? Yup. I think those might be the only two I would take over Morant right now. But I honestly haven't really looked at things. Just going off the games I've...

Re: Suns trade Ariza to Wizards - for real.

https://twitter.com/Gambo987/status/1073992213237919744 I think Oubre is better than Josh Jackson I do too. He is longer (7-4 wingspan), plays with more control, and is nearly as athletic. I think he might have more upside. I would consider dealing JJ while people are still enamored that he was the...

Re: Sources: Lakers trying to acquire Suns forward Trevor Ariza in a three-team deal

Maybe I'm seeing something that is not there, but why not a straight up Ariza for TJ McConnell swap with Philadelphia? Maybe Philly even throws in a 2nd rounder, but I'm just wondering if I'm the only one that sees that as beneficial for both teams and relatively fair.
