Crazy that Cooper is still available..I don’t love him, but he’s an absolute steal at this point. Would love this Nets 44th pick right now to snag him.

If we can get Sandro or Sims as UDFAs I'd be ecstatic.

Just learned about Sandro today, but count me as a fan, he’d be a fun prospect.

Didn’t do as much draft work this year…about the only guy left I even know is Joel Ayayi from Gonzaga…

I'd like to see Ayayi on the Summer League team if possible.

James Jones doing a press conference in the middle of the draft was probably a sign we had no real interest in anyone that was an option for us in this draft…or we didn’t scout it at all.

Something tells me the Suns 3 man front office of James Jones, Trevor Bukstein and Youtube Dotcom didn't do much draft prep.

I get going all in on a veteran team in the short term, but it doesn't excuse not bringing in a fresh crop of young talent to evaluate in person for the Summer League.

It's also a bit worrying with Sarver's financial past related to the draft. They just had three home games in the Finals. It shouldn't matter if they spend a little to look at some guys. They don't have to go full Jalen Lecque.

I would rather see UFAs playing overseas or in the D-league than pick up a fresh rookie for this particular team.

I had a feeling we'd trade out of the draft. We're in win-now mode and a rook likely wouldn't help much. We got a young guard in Shamet and still have Stix and Ty-Shon, who are basically rooks after not having a proper offseason after they were drafted. And it's not like we're an old team either. We don't need rooks every single year.

We're basically just fielding a SL team so Ty-Shon and Stix get some run.

What a roster!
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Did Justin Simon play at Arizona once upon a time? I think he’s the only name I even remotely recognize.

Limited playing time in 2015-16 season. Transferred after that ...
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)
