Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

That's only depth if you compare it to a team that incurred in malpractice last season. It looks like a 'complete' roster but it still has huge holes given the specific players added, all of which bring a concerning amount of question marks. Also, as proposed by that tweet, the bench is terribly ho...

I wouldn't be surprised if Morey were looking at RW as an asset to flip. No way he thinks RW and Harden can work together successfully.
I will be surprised if they get back more than they gave away.

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Is it crazy to wonder if OKC will just stretch CP3? If my math is right, it still leaves 17.7 million on the books the next 7 years in dead money, but that seems a lot better than an average of 41.4M on the books over the next 3. Easier to eat 40M when you're rebuilding than 17M when you want to be...

Re: Suns trading Melton and Jackson to Grizz for Korver and Javon Carter

Jevon Carter won’t be in the opening roster. He’s the 2019-20 George King. What are we waiting for on Oubre again? And no Kawhi is not an answer. Either extend him or don’t. If you don’t then trade him. It’s simple. Dither, dither dither. Here we are again. But it is the answer. That has to happen ...

Re: Suns sign Frank Kaminsky

I'm surprised Kaminsky got that much money. Is the second year any kind of option maybe? We now have two bigs who can shoot, which I think is necessary, and any combo of the 4 bigs should be able to play together except Baynes and Ayton. More athleticism would be nice, but athletic bigs that can sho...

Re: Suns sign Frank Kaminsky

We really need some defense and athleticism. I already listed my preferences for the vacant big man spot. Frank's a good player, but who's helping Ayton down low? Ayton needs to help himself down low. He’s our f*** franchise center. We needed a stretch 4 on the outside. If we need a bruiser for Ayt...

Interesting, wonder what the Blazers do with Nurk and Whiteside. Then again, Whiteside only plays about 50 games a year.
Isn't Nurkic out for most of the year and Whiteside expires after it?

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

I do wonder if we could have made the warren trade, made the 6 for 11 and Saric trade, drafted Clarke and not done the Mil pick for 24 and Baynes trade. Then enter free agency with 20 million in space and the Mil pick. Then we could have been the team to snag Brogdon on a 4/85 S&T with the Mil pick...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Bookmark this: https://earlybirdrights.com/salary-cap/phx/2019-20/ We can revisit when Oubre signs tonight. The next step is easier to take when you leave yourself flexibility. If we want to remain flexible it might mean not signing Oubre, which clearly makes us worse in the short term. I worry we'...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

I agree with ShelC, at least for 3pt shooting. The reasons they sucked were probably deeper than just lack of talent. Warren had 0.7 offensive rebounds per year last year, hardly terrific :) Not that I like how he was dumped. And I agree, Ayton better be ready. He was the #1 pick based on his physic...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

Indy also gave up a first rounder and 2 seconds to get Brogdon. Too rich for my blood. Doesn't matter . They got their guy and looking around at the deals some other players got, it's actually a good proposition at $21.5M per. I would have loved it if Jones was able to pull it off. Not saying it's ...

Re: Suns sign Rubio

I would give the Rubio signing a B. The money is a bit high, but the player makes sense. It's easier to wait out the first wave of FAs and get whoever is left on bargain deals when don't have specific needs. This team hopefully has some core pieces in place (Booker, Ayton, Bridges) and needs players...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Russell already took a bunch of nobodies to 42 wins and the playoffs. Imagine what he could do with Ayton and Booker. That is a false narrative. Kenny Atkinson is doing a tremendous coaching job and has built a great culture there, and the Nets have gotten good play from like 10 guys. LaVert, Dinwi...

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

I would give up #6 for Rubio. Heck, I wouldn’t be mad if Sarver wanted to just sell #6 (a la 2004-2006), in order to have more cap space. Chances are we aren’t going to get a good player at #6 in this draft, and we don’t need any more rookies. The mistakes of the past have beaten the fanbase sensel...

Re: 2019 NBA Playoffs

I don't believe the Warriors urged him to play, or pressured the doctors to clear him. If they (including Durant) thought the risk was too high, he wouldn't have played. I don't think him being a FA matters at all, that would be a huge black mark for the franchise. And I would guess career threateni...

Does Durant pick up his player option now? Or does someone still give him the full max, knowing he won’t play year 1
I bet he still gets the max. But now he probably takes more years than just 1+1.

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

What is so good about McConnnell? As far as I can tell he can neither shoot nor defend.
