Why is Earl Watson still talking about the Suns? Shouldn't he be looking for a job somewhere?

I have a really hard time believing McD or Sarver told him he was fired, but he would coaching the first 3 games. That is just ludicrous. Has anyone from the org backed that up yet?

A Sarver vs. Rich Paul feud. Yay. I can't tell who to root against more.

Either way, Suns fans lose as usual.

Well we can probably remove any rich Paul clients off any future wish lists while Sarver owns the team...that’s not a good position to be in

Hopefully the Watson/Bledsoe/Klutch/McD nonsense was rock bottom. Can't say for sure tho.

Suns always overachieving when it comes to finding new depths to hit rock bottom so keep those seatbelts buckled. This ride ain’t over

Doesn’t matter when they’re a rookie. We’ll have four years to deal with it. If we win, it will be a non-issue.

Is T.J. Warren being held out of games on purpose so he can’t reach his bonus?

No.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing.

I suspect TJ Warren has played his last game as a Suns. This offseason I suspect both Jackson and Warren will be dealt. Hopefully not for another wing.

And please, for the love of all that's good and holy, I don't want Rozier. He's basically just Tyler Johnson 2.0.

Jackson has little value at $7M owed next year. Unless he is bundled for salary purposes I don't think he is moved. With Tyler being owed $19M and Warren $12M we have enough salary to get anyone from $7M-$38M in salaries.
Go Suns!

By "fire" Rich Paul did he mean that he would fire Watson if he continued to use Klutch to represent him? If so, is that legal?

It’s all a weird situation. Watson deserves to be fired because his team sucked and then still regressed...If it makes him feel better to think he was fired for not getting rid of rich Paul, I don’t care what he tells himself
