Defund the Suns!

But seriously, this can’t be real, right? RIGHT?

Let's use a little self reflection here. McDonough's 3rd-8th players on those teams were the equivalent to the 11th-15th players on normal NBA teams. His track record for development was...lacking.

Do we have an official word on this account? It’s gotta be fake right? This last one is a rip on the current suns, but it’s also a burn on McD himself. He put those teams together, he chose to not use the G League.

He's clowning himself at this point. And do we have the youngest roster in the league now? Can't be.

Wow didn't realize. We feel like a more mature team tho. And just because we're the youngest team doesn't mean those guys need the GLeague. You're not sending Ayton down because he's 20. Book's 22 and been in the league 4 years. Bridges is 23, Oubre 24, Cam is like a 27yr old rook. He's also the one who didn't utilize it when he had it.

We got a little more mature with Rubio/Baynes, but we also off loaded Crawford. We also started last season with Ariza, Chandler, and Anderson.

Only guys over 25 on the team are Saric(26), Kaminsky(27), Rubio(30) and Baynes(33)

Good to know Monty was in the loop. I'll bet Jones didn't even know about it until he read his own press release on Twitter.

I'm pretty sure Ayton had his 21st birthday.

Everybody got their hopes up when they heard Sarver had sold the Suns.

Those were very telling quotes by Monty.

Sounds like this is step two of getting Monty to look elsewhere as soon as the team has a little success. Step one was cutting the coaching staff recently.
