Robinson has one elite skill and is lacking everywhere else. If he slumps and that elite skill becomes ordinary, he’s unplayable. I don’t think he’s what we need.
We need fewer 1-dimensional players.
Ya it’s why I don’t love Bojan either, he’s like 1.5 dimensional. He can attack closeouts and create his shot decently, just doesn’t create for anyone else. Also doesn’t defend.

He hits 3s at +39% and can dribble to create his shot better than any non-guard on our team. He also gets to the line more per game than anyone on our team not named Devin Booker. That is a big part of my desire for him.

Ya I think he helps us, just would love someone like Barnes better who’s more 2.5 dimensional as he also plays defense.

Well, hopefully the "weather" is sunny either way.

Flex is 99% certain that Jae either will or won't be traded.

Frank seems like a 3rd string guy that could make more money and play a significant role if he went to Europe. He did shoot 40% from 3 in 2020-21, but he’s just 33% for his career.

You have to wonder about a point guard averages 22 minutes and 1 assist.

He’s definitely not a pg…and with a non-guaranteed deal, he seems like a placeholder until we find someone else in the buyout market.

Frank Jackson is barely an NBA player. He's the type of guy that might've gotten 8mpg had the Suns traded the farm for Durant, but he's not seeing the court for anything meaningful while on a talent rich roster like the Suns have.

I thought it was saying all of our assets are not available to be traded right now to make a big move.

Ya, I was gonna say, he’s probably a guy that is close to going over to Europe
