I was so glad this happened. We weren't going to hear the end of it if the young Lakers took down the young Kings without LeBron.

I'm curious why the Suns didn't look to do something like this. Maybe McCaw isn't worth it though?

He's a shooting guard that can't shoot. At least according to his stats. I can't remember watching him play. but he is a two-time NBA champion!

He’s got some ball handling ability, but he’s no more a pg than josh Jackson is

Sam Vecenie and Dieter Kurtenbach talk shortly in today's Game Theory podcast about Phoenix being in contention for AD. Sam suggests that if they get the #1 they offer that and anything other than Ayton and Booker, which is what a few of us said. But, Sam thought that maybe the Suns go with Zion and just roll with that timeline instead.

AD is better than Zion, but I’m not sure the risk would be worth it. If AD gives no indication he’d resign, Zion would be really tough to pass on.

I’m happy with Ayton, but I’d move him for AD over moving Zion. Booker/Zion/AD would be a lot of fun!

I just can't see this organization moving Ayton under any circumstances.

And I'd only consider any of these trades if AD indicates he'd stay.

Ayton is under control for at minimum 8 years and likely 9. I know AD is balls to the wall fantabulous but you can't do it based on control alone. Especially since AD & Booker don't make you any better than New Orleans currently is with Jrue & Mirotic. That's just common sense.

I don't know about that. Depending on the remaining pieces I guess. Add shooters and defenders and who is going to stop Booker-Davis? And don't forget about Warren.

Yes let's give the team who's already had a million first round picks another one. Unbelievable.

By the way, I'm against anything that includes Boston. You can calm down now iLL. Just asking what could Boston want in return.
