This is a preview of the Mikal Bridges extension.
Would be great if the Isaac extension were a preview of Ayton's.

If he came back healthy I’d love to trade Ayton for Isaac.
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Clearly I don’t have a lot of faith in Ayton becoming a star. Isaac is a better defender and offensive player. Sure if Ayton hits his ceiling he’s better than Isaac. I just don’t think he will. The injury concerns for Isaac would keep me from doing it though.

Isaac is a better shot blocker, other than that, I just dont see what you do.

Isaac is not better than Ayton, in the now, or potentially.

I disagree there. Isaac was a DPOY candidate early last year before he got hurt. His per-36 numbers were 15/9/2 with 3 blocks and 2 steals. He can defend anyone. He shoots 34% from 3 and can put the ball on the floor. The only think Ayton does better is rebound.

I guarantee Ayton is better than Jonathan Issac in every statistical category for 2020-2021 season seeing how Issac IS GOING MISS THE ENTIRE SEASON DUE TO INJURY!!! Issac is extremely injury prone, and no way shape and form would I trade Ayton for someone who has high potential to be injured for most of that 4yr deal.

Good point. Tough to produce when you rarely see the court.
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!

I don’t know why so many on here are ready to trade Ayton for damn role players. I don’t oppose trading him but we should aim a little higher. Jeez.

Well as I said, I would trade Ayton for him IF HE WAS HEALTHY

You’re not getting a star player for Ayton, sorry it’s just not happening.

Agree to disagree. I know I’m in the minority but I think he’s going have a good to great season this year and will average somewhere around 20 & 12, making him prime trade bait next season if star becomes available.

All of these extensions are nuts. I don't think there is a single one that teams will feel good about a year from now.
