LOL, the Heat select Nikola Jovic of Serbia. Yes, his name is ONE LETTER different than that of the erstwhile NBA MVP center. Not confusing at all.

But was it during a Taco Bell commercial?

Everybody is saying Philly made a great trade. But Danny Green is a serviceable wing who can drain 3s, and they give up a 1st rounder, all to acquire Melton, a guy we couldn't be bothered to keep on our roster as an end-of-the-bench guard. Is that really a good trade for Philly?
Green tore his ACL in the playoffs. He’s probably out for the year.

Or forever. Not a lot of 35 year olds come back from that.

Love Koloko. I think that's a good fit for him.
Go Suns!

Flex saying something about Sochan. Fuck out of here
Gut feeling: Suns are looking at trade with San Antonio for DA. They'll get Sochan, who isn't a James Jones kind of guy (not NBA ready), but is intended to be flipped for KD (which oddly seems to be falling into place).
I don’t know a lot about this draft, but I love the idea of Sochan
Sochan is one of those Freshman who screams "potential" rather than posting eye popping stats.

That's exactly the sort of player James Jones is uninterested in. If he's included in an Ayton S&T, it's a near certainty he's being packaged and sent elsewhere.
Yeah hard pass on a player that didn’t excel at a college level.

James Jones know the draft was tonight? Would have liked to have added someone who fell. EJ Liddell comes to mind.

Miss me with EJ Liddell AKA Alando Tucker 2.0.

Isaiah Mobley, however, would've been a really nice pick.

I'm convinced James Jones goes to bed at 5 pm on draft night.

Looks like we couldn’t get any of the 7 players on James Jones draft board.

If we just go by their public statements, Jones seems to like Ayton, and Monty and CP3 want him gone. Who wins that battle? Sarver's pocketbook? DA wanting out?

Pretty wild. He might've been a lottery pick last year.

Now's the annual tradition of every undrafted free agent signing with other teams. Always fun to watch.

I'm very happy to see that none of the knee-jerk Ayton trades proposed by the fans came to fruition. Unless there's actually a good trade out there, I say that the Suns simply match an Ayton offer.
