You had to know if we needed a pick to dump Warren we'd need one to dump Jackson.

Do we take more salary back in this deal? Korver makes more than Jackson an Melton and Carter cancel each other out. We would still need to shed some salary to sign Rubio right?

Korver seems a perfect fit considering the moves Jones has made. I don't want to but him out, but if feels unavoidable.

Edit: nevermind, apparently the buyout is done:

I think I read that we free up $3.9 million with this trade.

Korver only guaranteed to $3.4M if waived by July 7th.

This deal frees up the ~$2M they needed to sign Rubio. I assume they'll waive Korver and free up another ~$4M.

So if anyone had told me the Suns would trade TJ Warren, Josh Jackson and four second round picks for cap space to sign Ricky Rubio I'd tell them they were crazy.

I don't understand this trade. If we are going to cut Korver, why not just cut Jackson?

Korver’s salary is only partly guaranteed, so we save money if we cut him.

It's more expensive to cut Jackson.

Plus, if we don't have draft picks we don't have to hire scouts.

Oh yeah! That’s great. What do we buy with the money we saved?

And the Jackson era ends...gotta say, I was way wrong about him. I thought he was just about perfect for us in the draft. Although I will say, I did have Isaac slightly ahead of him.

RIcky Rubio and a trip to Cabo for Bob Sarver.
