rubio would be perfect for this team. it will force booker to play off the ball more.

i think rubio, TJ, jerome is a good 1, 2 , 3 at the PG position.

He has 68 followers.
Sure, but if he’s right, he’s right. And apparently has a pretty good history of getting things right.
Lol. Alright man. This is a total fake account.
Could be, didn’t think it would hurt to share. I’m not taking it as truth

I feel like Tyus Jones would be better than Rozier. Rozier has never shot 40%. In four seasons. Plus, he has a bit of an attitude...I think his success in the 2018 playoffs went to his head. I think Rozier is better defensively than Jones, but I just trust Jones's attitude and play-making more.
I love Tyus Jones as an option over Rozier. Jones is sort of like Patrick Beverly, if Beverly was 23 instead of 31. Rozier is another knucklehead who can't shoot, and his metrics are really mediocre to bad across the board. We'll end up hating him.

100% prefer Jones over Rozier. I hope Scary Terry indeed goes to CHA.

Does seem weird that we’d be interested in Rozier and not Russell though
Rozier isn't looking for a max contract.
That’s fair, but we don’t seem to even be considering talking to him. Maybe stretching Tyler is not even an option to Sarver
This.

Az republic had a great article yesterday detailing different ways Suns could get enough cap space to sign D Lo if they were so inclined. The big takeaway they go over luxury tax in certain scenarios.

Suns have the cap space. They just have a cheap owner.

Cook can shoot, but is he much of a pg? How is he defensively?

His advanced defensive numbers aren't great. Maybe we're looking for a combo/shooter at PG and he's definitely got the resume.

Either the Suns are just chilling or they're not showing their hand to anyone including Gambo.

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.

Love Shane Larkin and saw he was interested in coming back to the NBA. I don't know that he's a starter but he's a rotation guy for sure IMO.

At least all the NFL guys think we’re getting D-Lo

You're not impressed with our tight-lipped, hold their cards to their vests, new front office?

We didn't hear about Tyson Chandler or Trevor Ariza in advance either.

A lot of these various rumors get leaked by front office or agents to gauge reaction. If there aren't any rumors about the Suns right now, that may mean we aren't up to much. Or it could just mean that no party involved is trying to test reactions to the deals they're working on. There is some DLo/Suns stuff out there, so I think one side or the other is checking on that. But I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
