From a non suns standpoint

Trae and Zion could be fun

Zion with Markkanen would as well, the bulls really need guards though.

Don’t want him on Knicks or Cavs

Zion and JJJ make a great match!

Luka/Zion/KP is also fantastic.

Booker/Zion would be a lot of fun too.

Really, Zion fits nicely just about anywhere
The Memphis one is really intriguing.

Zion going to Dallas would be unfair.

If the Suns got the #1 pick and Knicks got the #2 pick, hypothetically speaking, how much could you get from the Knicks in a swap?

I don’t know that the Knicks have enough to interest me in a swap. I like Ja, but I think Zion is a future mvp. I’m not gonna pass on him

I don’t know about the future MVP, but I’m with you. I think I’d pass even if they threw in Knox and Robinson.

We’ll have other avenues to address PG.

Mostly just meant he’s a mvp talent..he may not win, but I think he can be in that AD/Giannis tier

Who cares from a non-Suns perspective? I don't. If we don't get him, I hope the Knicks do and not for basketball reasons.
I do care. I enjoy the nba from a league wide perspective. I don’t root for any other team besides the suns, but I like players to be in good situations. I like good players to be on good teams that fit their style and strengths. The league will be much better off if Zion lands in a good situation with players that fit around him. Him toiling on the Cavs for 8 years while they struggle to put anything resembling a good team around him is not ideal.
The latter is better for the Suns so I prefer it.

Difference is, Westbrook did it on video.
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

20/20/20 is incredible.

If someone asked me whether we'd see a 100-point game or a 20/20/20 game first, I'd probably have picked the 100-point game.

I am a little surprised no one has posted this video yet. Interesting perspective on Zion from the former Agent Zero.

The L.A. Tankers have shelved LeBron for the rest of the season to allow his groin to fully heal.
To any fool who thinks Lebron is the greatest player in NBA history: I humbly submit this season as one of the many exhibits showing that he is not. (See also: winning only 3-of-9 in the Finals, etc.)
This is just silly.

Giannis is just unfair.

Left out Ayton, probably because Ayton actually defended him well.

I assume he left out Ayton because he is known as a bad defender. Those other guys are top-notch.

Delon Wright had a 26 point, 10 rebound, 14 assist game tonight with 0 turnovers. He’s a pg option that doesn’t get mentioned much, but should be. He’s restricted...Memphis probably wants to keep him around, but worth considering.

Although Memphis isn’t tanking very well...have moved up to 9th in draft position...they’d have to give their pick to Boston in that case

Can see us landing 3 and swapping for 9 with Boston in a sign and trade for Rozier...I wouldn’t be a big fan of that move though. I guess it’d be tolerable if 9 was Clarke and we don’t sign Rozier to a huge deal.

I'd much rather go hard after Jaylen Brown than Terry Rozier in a trade with Boston.
