Are we pretending that Ayton won't be getting that soon?
He’s at least 6 years away from that
But in 2 years he will be at 30, right?

Found our stretch big

Don’t even joke
Well...he does get to the line more often than Ayton, haha.

If only the Suns could have signed him and drafted Haliburton, prior to the trade of Paul.

Not entirely sure I'd give him half that.
Go Suns!

Why don’t we wait and see where Ayton is at in 6 years before we make that decision.
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!

We have to decide if we want to pay him 30M at the end of this season, or we are sending a message to the rest of the league that we are letting him play out his final team option year. There have only been a couple #1 picks where the teams let that happen, and they are all considered busts.

I'll EXTEND him the red carpet out the door if he thinks he's worth 30 mil based on his current body of work. He's worth whatever his rookie salary is as a #1 pick.

13M next year, with a 32M cap hit the summer after.

Glad we didn’t trade for him and give him that contract.

Teams that overpay for role players (15M+) on long term deals are really going to hamstring themselves.

Continue to think giving the right guys the max deals and maintaining flexibility by signing role players at reasonable contracts is the key to sustained success. I just don’t see a lot of difference in on court value between most guys making $8M annually vs $16M.

I do think the Suns played it smart on that end.

Clips are either all in on this team, or they are collecting salaries to land another piece(Morris and Kennard at 4/64 seems like a big overpay for both)

That could be a good deal if he comes back healthy. He’s a legit DPOY candidate when healthy

That’s a lot. He still hasn’t got back his 3pt shot yet. Orlando getting pretty locked in to a mediocre team.

Afraid there is tons of cap space next year and not a lot of free agents. Thought they might see some big restricted offers.
