Yeah I don't think anything would make sense for either team as a 2-team trade. And that part about Ayton refusing to play for Sarver is likely just conjecture. It could also be the other way around, where Sarver is saying "trade that guy."
Except he probably said something other than "guy". (Sorry, that was in bad taste. Innocent until proven guilty and all that.)

Another thing we like to track 8-)
Book to Bridges seems to be a theme there.

Not apples to apples but he's like a larger version of Payton and Rubio (who's actually become a somewhat reliable scorer/3pt shooter).

Unless there's really something brewing with DA not wanting to play, we don't seem to be in the "blockbuster trade" phase of our run. And relying on Javale and Frank as our main 5s would be risky even with the thought of Simmons as a frontcourt 4/5.
Wolves are 3-6.

KAT has had one winning season in his 7 years there, with Jimmy butler back in the day.

Anthony Davis lasted 7 years with NO with a slightly better performing team.

Surely (surely, lol) there’s a shot.

Simmons for Ayton makes absolutely no sense for either team. Philly is going to start Ayton and Embiid? What? And we're going to trade a great young center for a pouty guard who needs the ball in his hands and can't shoot when we already have CP3 and Book running our offense? Bleh. Really silly trade idea.

Now, Ayton for Rubio, THAT's a trade I can get behind. (I keed, I keed.)

I agree it doesn’t make sense, but we gotta stop looking at Simmons as a guard. He’s a 4 that can play small ball 5 and run the offense. We would be stupid to try and use him like Philly did.
My wish list: KAT, Pascal Siakam, Thad Young, Harrison Barnes, Kyle Anderson

He is 6-11, 240. He's the same height as Ayton and same weight at Frank.

Simmons has had zero growth skill wise as a player. He hit his ceiling without further improvement. If even motivated or ready to get back to playing ball again, his talent isn’t enough in the playoffs.

KAT is the only Ayton trade that appeals to me and even with that move we’ve got to upsize the Crowder spot

I just hope after the Sarver alleged Sarver comments about him Ayton he is willing to stay the Suns long term. We may not have a choice in the matter.

KAT is the dream, I am rooting for a Minnesota collapse just to keep that option realistic.

How about a three way with us ending up with KAT? That makes more sense.

Though he hasn’t professionally set foot on a basketball court since July — due to a torn ACL the forward-center suffered during Game 1 of the 2021 NBA Finals — Phoenix Suns star baller Dario Šarić still boasts an impressive salary. That means the native Croatian, 27, naturally has plenty of cash to dole out on a lavish home. His residence of choice: some strikingly Scandinavian-influenced digs in the sought-after Bartlett Estates neighborhood of Phoenix...

Does that mean he's not being packaged in a trade this year?

We've got a nice six game winning streak going with various posters starting the game day threads. Let's continue the trend tonight.
