I’m okay with them getting a starting level NBA point guard. Just wish they had gone after Russell and at least tried to get him!

Marty finally gets his wish. We're going to hate him by the All-Star break.
Go Suns!

He looked to be a lock for Indy. I'll take him for now.

I thought they said Rubio to Indiana was a done deal a few hours ago? Lol.

Sounds like a Suns point guard.

I think what he meant to say is that’s a lot of money. But this is Phoenix.

Best way to sum up my reaction: not total excitement but a definite sigh of relief lol. I was afraid we were going to go through another season without a point guard. And yes Cory Joseph = without a point guard.

I would have liked the move much better if it was a 2 year deal

Yea he's a competent, NBA PG who can distribute. His offense is ugly but whatever. And if we re-sign Oubre we can get back to running and pushing the pace. He'll a guy like Kelly 4-6 easy points in transition.

And if we keep Tyler, he comes off the bench where he's best suited.
