I hope so. It would be weird if nobody showed up.

I realise that due to the fact that there are always Quality posts on here and we don't have a Like button that someone decided to start a new Quote/Like trend :)
Good idea 8-)

As with most things Devin related , it popped up on my Timeline that his interview on this podcast The Outlet should be posted later today so I was checking to see what it's all about.
Not sure if someone mentioned them before but Devin will be the 10th episode, Majerle was the previous and I just got through listening to it and thought it was cool

It would be nice to get a PG without injury concerns.

Suns interested in Tyus Jones?

LOVE Tyrus Jones. Super underrated. If you can get him for the Milwaukee pick, you have to do it. Absolutely have to.

I saw the link to Jones but have not heard of him over here. Anyone want to elaborate on strengths and weaknesses?

Could we field a back or front court of King Arthur?

The combo is about their only relevance... I think we should lose Daniels too.

King is on a 2 way, that leaves 17 for 15 spots. Arthur is pretty much a lock to be cut. Last cut would seem to come down to Canaan, Harrison, or Daniels. I guess there is always a possibility of a Chandler buy out, but I doubt it.

I wouldn't cut Harrison. If we don't add a vet PG, then I wouldn't cut Canaan either. That leaves Daniels as my last cut. We added enough shooting this off-season and have enough guard talent that I don't think Daniels is necessary anymore.

Daniels sucks. He is a one trick pony with poor shot selection and is not a very smart ball player. I would prefer him off the team over Canaan or Harrison.

Hasn't played many minutes. He's small, takes care of the ball, good distributor, decent shot. Shows really well in advanced stats and plus minus metrics. He's a good defensive player, but isn't going to be able to cover anything but pg's. So no covering Booker's man.

So low usage, can run the offense, can shoot a bit, can defend the 1. He's solid.

Tyus Jones is everything we hoped Tyler Ulis would be, a high level backup who can occasionally fill in as a starter when needed.

I'd entertain the idea of trading for him with the Milwaukee pick, but I'd rather wait and see what Melton and Okobo show us in the short term.
