Re: Jae Crowder trade request

If we're somehow able to pull off getting Coby White from Chicago, that would fill a significant need at the backup point. Plus, I think he's the type of player that would latch on to CP3 and try to learn all he could.

Re: Suns 2022 Off-Season Thread

I'm just going off of the eye test and definitely not looking at any advanced metrics, but I don't think Duncan Robinson is as horrible a defender as he is being made out to be. He's not some all-world defender, but I think he can be passable enough and his potential contributions on the offensive e...

Re: Suns 2022 Off-Season Thread

I'm probably in the minority, but I think Duncan Robinson is a good player who is just not a fit right now for his current team. If I HAD to trade Jae for either Bojan or Robinson, I think I'd take Robinson.

Re: Suns 2022 Off-Season Thread

In my opinion, a Crowder/Barnes trade would seem to make a lot of sense for both teams.

Re: Suns 2022 Off-Season Thread

I don't think Foster should ever ref a game with Chris Paul involved until there's at least some internal league review (which I suppose could have happened and the league just kept it quiet). It's just very statistically unlikely the CP3 would be on the losing end of that for so long. The league sh...

Re: Around the League News - 2022 Offseason Edition

I don't think it's possible to get Mike Conley in a reasonable trade just considering salaries, but if he's bought out, he would be such a backup for Paul. I don't know if he'd be fine coming off the bench, but for a chance to play meaningful minutes for a championship contender, he'd be fantastic.

Re: Around the League News - 2022 Offseason Edition

There's probably some gettable players from the Jazz that could help out our roster. Clarkson, Bogdanovic, and Markkanen would all fit well here.

Re: Suns 2022 Off-Season Thread

I think I'd look into what Philly would want for Paul Reed. I think he's going to develop into a nice power forward, and I think he had a good summer league.

Gambo saying that he thinks we're set with the roster. I know we have up until the deadline to make changes, but blech. Blech? That's a little strong, don't you think? We flamed out in spectacular fashion and, as of today, our big changes were losing Javale and adding Landale, Okogie and Lee. 3 min...

John Collins is very available.
Crowder, Shamet, and a future 1st for Collins. Who says no?
I'd honestly be very good with that. And Paul has always been great with athletic forwards that can run a pick and roll.

Speaking of Al, great to see him in this new ad:


I still don't get why the org continues to embrace KJ, though.
WORD!
That surprised me too.
Sarver strikes me as the type that it isn't that big of a deal to him.

Re: Is KD coming to the Suns?

Ayton was told in many ways that we don't believe he is worth the max and we actively shopped him. I don't see him taking that and saying "well now I want to play better than ever for this team and I will work harder at this than ever before." I hope he proves me wrong. But put me in the ...

Re: Is KD coming to the Suns?

This is the first mention I have seen that says we have actually offered Mikal. Yeah, and I don't like it but I get it. But if that offer isn't enough, move on. We can't gut our youth and future for a 34-year-old. Unless we want to give the title a couple shots and then back to average. I guess tha...

Re: Suns Off-Season Thread

If all this reporting is true, and that's a really big assumption, then it's really interesting to see the rival GMs really squeeze the Nets together. It sounds like any of these teams could have KD now if they would just budge on something (Bridges for us, Brown and/or Smart for the Celtics, etc......

Re: Suns Off-Season Thread

I think including Crowder for Clarkson is a bit of an overpay. I like Clarkson as a player though, and there are times where he can really get on scoring roles. But his defense is average on a good day... That being said, if the Jazz look to dump him for a pick + Craig (don't know if that works trad...

Re: Suns Off-Season Thread

I'm surprised we were able to get him on a 2-way contract. You would think someone would have given him a more guaranteed deal. Seems like the kind of guy that San Antonio or Orlando could have signed and used easily. Oh well, good for us!

Re: Is KD coming to the Suns?

I think the Nets leaked it; I think no team is going to give them the historic haul they're looking for KD or Kyrie, and they want KD to give it a try with Kyrie and Simmons.

I think the Nets overplayed this, and now they need to try and save face, at least until the trade deadline.
