So, now the scumbag has turned it into a sting operation?
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. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season!

That letter is an absolute joke and says a lot about the character of Sal DiDiccio.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but what does it matter that Sarver donated after the city council vote was taken? Isn't that exactly how politics work in the US? Is this DiDiccio clown really claiming that he's never done anything similar if not more nefarious?

Thanks McD for for spouting off and bringing more negative attention to the Suns. Your miserable management of the team wasn't enough shame for you, I guess.

The rare situation where somehow everyone involved ends up looking like a scumbag.

Apparently we have interest in everyone this offseason. Not sure I'm buying it, in general. Also not sure I like Dipo's fit here.

He's overpaid at this point and I don't think he'll ever get back to the All-Star level player he was a few seasons ago.

The deal would have to be pretty sweet for the Suns for me to be comfortable trading for him.

If you think the Suns are going to acquire a bunch of high-priced new players while they've just dumped their G-League team to get some cash and laid off 80 of the team staff, I have some land in Florida to sell you.

Absolutely.

This is all smoke screening for the inevitable penny pinching off-season, IMO.

Sam Cooper had a similar thought on the Timeline podcast today.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

I don't listen to that one, but it's not a hot take for anyone to have in the slightest.

Yeah, I could easily see that happen, unfortunately. As far as the Timeline podcast, I would definitely suggest it. It's the best of what the 10 Suns podcasts out there, imo. They also have been doing a series on FA targets for the Suns on Youtube. Here is the latest one:

I think a lot of these leaks are agent-driven. Trying to drum up demand for their clients in a suppressed market.

So now the Suns are interested in Oladipo now too?

The Suns need another star besides Booker.

Oladipo worries me. Not sure he’s ever going to get back to his old self. He wasn’t very good this year. Still only 28 though. If he can get back to his old self, he’d be a nice fit next to Booker.

I feel like they just list the people with the most expected cap room.
