Re: Around the League: Off-season

Ced who, Ceballos? What happened with him? Who did he wrong? I wish there was some way we could get Isaac from the Magic. He was a jerk at a Suns basketball camp my son attended way back. Based on the picture he posted, he's at the last stage before they intubate, put him on a vent, and start the E...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Chandler Hutchison is a two way contract on a player with no areas that really stand out, other than being above average rebounder for 6'6". This registers as a 1.2 on the Richter Scale: too small for any of us to even notice if it wasn't for the press release.

Re: Around the League: Off-season

Ben Simmons is done in Philadelphia. Don't expect the Suns to be involved: there's no way to make the salaries match with what we have on hand (Well, Ok, Crowder, Saric, Smith, and Ayton would work numerically, but we wouldn't do it) https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/ben-simmons-informs-76ers-he-wa...

Craig and Nader are totally different players. Craig served as a 4/5 in our offense. Nader is strictly a wing.
Agreed. Nader is a 2/3 (primarily 3), Craig was a 3/4 tweener forward.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

We still haven't landed a replacement for Saric or Criag. Basically, a back up power forward / center with range, or athletic stopper at 3/4 who can hit the 3. Arguably Jalen Smith and Cam Johnson fill those roles respectively, but Smith is what he is (bad), and if either of Johnson or Craig miss a...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Do we think there’s another move this offseason? Not counting Bridges and Ayton extensions. I’m starting to think we are done and will keep that last roster spot and our exceptions for buyout candidates during the season. That’s not the worst idea, but I would have loved to add 1 more piece(we have...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I don't like seeing signs of Saver being cheap, but I didn't really care about Ty-Shon Alexander. He seemed like he was never going to make it. I wish him well and was rooting for him, but I didn't really see anything out of him that made me think he would be a rotation NBA player anytime soon. Giv...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

1. Elfrid Payton is capable of passing the ball. If he were capable of shooting, we wouldn't have gotten him for basically vet min. As a third string back up, he's fine. People in NYC hate him: he's coming off his worst year in the NBA and his confidence appears shattered. We'll see if he can put hi...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Kaminsky should be your 11th or 12th man. If he's in the rotation, something has gone horribly wrong.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

The more I look at Landry Shamet, the more doubtful I become. His shooting was pretty poor last year, just .408 FG%. And that's pretty representative of his whole career. By contrast, Jevon Carter actually shoots a better overall percentage and is probably a much better defender. And Carter worked ...

I'd love to bring Baynes back with the BAE, or IPE. Or vet min if he'll take it.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Suns look like they're just about done for the offseason. They have 11 contracts now. PGs: CP3 Payne SGs: Booker Shamet SFs: Bridges Nader PFs: Crowder Johnson Cs: Ayton McGee J. Smith I forgot Saric. So we have 12 contracts. One of which is a lead albatross (Saric). DPE is only $4.25M, not sure wh...

I have a feeling we’re getting Cody Zeller, can someone convince me that’s a good move?
I can't. He's god-awful on defense after we lost the finals because we couldn't defend the opposition's frontcourt.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Flex from Jersey reporting that the Suns might look to trade into the 2nd round if a guy they want is still there. I wonder if they're thinking of Bassey or Wieskamp, both of whom are likely to be around between 35-45.
