They just need to get someone who is better. ;)

Seriously, though, they can get a bruiser like Randle or they could get a small ball 4 that has power forward traits/abilities, like Houston has with PJ Tucker. Either direction would be a vast improvement.

Or they could get a combo of the two. Like Larry Nance Jr. He has traditional power forward size though not a bruiser, but he can hit the 3 ball and rebound.
Yeah, we had him and most here wanted him gone.
Still happy he’s gone
I'm sure he is too. He's playing for something.

Some didn't want to see it, but Tucker has value to any team. Hustle, intensity, rebounding, never afraid to take the best offensive player. Now even shoots volume. Here he tried to do too much, but to me that was a minor flaw compared to what he brought to the table.

Same thing with Dudley, even on his current overweight state. He still provides an extra pass, a timely three and knows where to be on defense and play within his limitations. That's useful even on the playoffs as we can see.

Nah guys like Tucker and Dudley are way more valuable to winning teams. They can make good teams better but can't make bad teams good.

Good play is good play. Such players may help more on winning teams, but they also have value to a roster led by youth.

Thank you.

Although Duds at least played within his limitations. Tucker would get into shouting matches with the young guys and I didn’t like that, often times he was the one actually out of place on defense.

Jimmer is not a good NBA player. He is not a trash human being though. I'm not Mormon, I'm not a BYU fan, nor am I a Jimmer fan, but he seems like a good guy and I wish him the best. I just don't think he helps the Suns with a uniform on. Maybe someday he can help them in some other capacity, but not as a player, imo.

Harsh enough?

Not speaking on him as a person or his character. I’m sure he’s a good dude. On the court at the NBA level he is horrendous.
