Are we worried about the defense? Two consecutive games giving up 120+ points.

Fun fact: Brooklyn and Phoenix are 1 and 2 in win percentage against the west and in win percentage against teams above .500
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.

Wonder if that order might swap had we not lost that first matchup with them...

Win percentage against the west was close...but Brooklyn is 17-3 against above .500 teams. They are way above everyone there.

What did Phx give up for Craig?
I like Torrey Craig, but I don't want to see anyone significant moved away for him. He hasn't been great this yr, iirc. I heard he's on a minimum contract, is that right?

I’d guess it’s probably for one of our guards...either Galloway or Moore. Gives us a wing in case Cam is out awhile.

We also have a roster spot, so maybe not giving anything.

Wow, Cash Considerations is Robert Sarver's favorite player. Must've been a tough one for him to part with.

Probably to help Milwaukee stay under the luxury or hard cap?

What's in it for us. Surely, we don't need another wing. And don't call me Shirley!

Craig put up 16.2 PPG and 7.2 RPG at USC Upstate.

Don't forget that he earned NBL Best Defensive Player honors with the Brisbane Bullets.

I like this Craig acquisition... finally somebody else made a move and the Suns got in on it in a good way. The Bucks owe us after dumping Knight on us.

The only thing is, I guess we'll have to make some more maneuvers to get a backup big if we want to play the buy out market now.

IIRC Craig was on the scrimmage squad for the Olympics team last year...?
