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.

Oladipo to the Heat? Why? Does he play well with Butler?

He was planning on going there anyway. So I assume Huston is thinking get what they can for him.

Let's see what Pop can do with him.
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! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

Not really a trade but Player movement.

Sarver should check to see if we still have that big poster from the last time Aldridge spoke to different teams.

Lecque, an athletic 20-year-old guard...
He's surely athletic and 20-years old. The guard part, I think we've seen enough to say that he doesn't meet the NBA level.

I wonder if Olynyk gets bought out, too. That would be interesting. He's a better Frank.

I didn’t expect us to do anything and ultimately I’m cool with it. There wasn’t really anyone that was moved that I feel we missed on. Our team is good. Let’s see what kind of playoff team we are and adjust from there. There’s an argument for going all-in right now, but I’m not sure what that trade was. I guess Vucevic, but would have had to dump Saric or Crowder in it as salary too. Plus Ayton of course.

We added Torrey Craig, who I’m not expecting anything major from, but he can play rotation minutes in a pinch. Maybe we feel out the buyout market a bit as well.

We’ve got 4 guys I feel good about in the playoffs(Paul, Booker, Bridges, Crowder), 2 guys I’m optimistic about(Saric and Cam Johnson), and 2 questions, 1 much bigger than the other(Ayton and Cam Payne).

Craig/Gallo/Nader/Frank/Moore/Carter are all guys I’m not counting on in the playoffs, but could all potentially help in a pinch. I put them in order of who I’d trust the most.

As always, Ayton is the big swing piece. If he hits in the playoffs, I feel real good about our team. If he misses, we’re a quick exit. You won’t hear me mention trades again till the offseason, but if Ayton misses, we will 100% need to get rid of him and find a piece that can help us win.

Two firsts as well going to orlando
If I were a Magic fan, I don't love that return. The front office was right to decide to rebuild, but I don't think they did that well on the liquidation sale.

Any interest in Terrence Ross? Jalen Smith/Jevon Carter/Moore would do the trick salary wise.
I couldn't support that deal. Jalen has looked pretty bad, but I still want to give him a chance. Ross would have been a significant upgrade over what we have backing up the 2, but I don't think it would have been wise to chase luxuries when we still have needs.

Parker would make sense if he could stay on the floor and hit the long ball, neither of which he has been able to do.
