So putting down for the under?
If history tells us anything, it is probably to bet the under.

If it is 26.5, it is probably a safer bet than the over, but I do think we should win +30 games. My biggest hesitation there would be related to Book's health.

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Those are your opinions. I happen to like Shel’s better. It’s interesting how so many Suns fans like to crap on almost every move we make. Most of the pundits think it’s a good move but of course, they don’t know the team like we do so what do they know? Most of the pundits loved our Bender/Chriss ...

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Looks like the Wizards are offering Beal 3-years, $111 million. Making Rubio and Oubre really look even more overpaid. How does that make them look more overpaid? That’s a max extension offer for Beal. Though I believe Beal can get more if waits until FA and signs a max. I think they know this offe...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

Assuming Ayton will show something he hasn't, while assuming KP won't have something he has shown us, seems like a bad way to win an argument. Ayton is entering his second season. Most good young players show new improvements to their game as they grow. Kristaps Porzingis tore his ACL. Most players...

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Every player has faults. You're not going to find a perfect player to come to a 20 win team, regardless of a max contract. If it were DLo, it'd be defense and needing the ball to be effective. Kyrie, it'd be attitude and injuries. I think the way the roster is constructed, we can minimize Rubio's m...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

25-29. We're about 10 games better than last year. Still no defense at SG, PF, or C. No shooting at PG. No rebounding from PFs. Too many holes to be a good, or even average, team. I think Saric/Diallo is a pretty significant upgrade in rebounding over TJ Warren and Bender. I assume when we play Bri...

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Rubio's a starting point guard in the league, I know that much. You're handing out participation awards. There are a lot of guys that start in this league that aren't very good. Danny Green has been starter for a long time, but if I am out to find an impact starter at the 2 spot, I'm not signing Da...

Re: Predict 2019-20 Suns # of wins

I think we're better than the Mavs. I like Doncic and KP a lot, but we have a better best 3 guys (Rubio, Booker, Ayton) than they do Rubio is in our "best 3"?! And I don't know what team vs. team debate is won with playing the Ricky Rubio card. Rubio is clearly in our best 3. For PGs. He is probabl...

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

Average STARTING PG is worlds better than average GLEAGUE PG. Rubio is a phenomenal passer, but is a pedestrian shooter at the position. The problem with Rubio in Utah wasn't that he wasn't any good, it was that he wasn't a good enough shooter to make up for having 2 other non-shooters on the floor...

When does Okobo's contract become guaranteed? I think we can still cut him and sign someone at a position of need.
Like Split said, it looks like it was fully guaranteed the first 2 years, with an un-guaranteed 3rd year and even a team option in year 4.

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

In short, we could have done a good bit better and a lot worse than Rubio as our starting PG for 3 years at 17 per year.

That would be a tremendous pickup. I worry though that he may not even clear waivers. And even if he does, I think a team like Houston will try to snatch him up. Yeah, I hope we make a run at him.

Pelicans released Christian Wood. I’d definitely look at him to take our last roster spot. That would be a tremendous pickup. I worry though that he may not even clear waivers.

Re: Suns News: 2019 Off-Season

Jones' explanation for the Warren trade is not sufficient. Sure we opened up cap space, but we clearly traded him below his market value. He was not a negative asset/contract and we should not have had to pay to get him off our books. It seems like Jones only view the transaction in light of how it...
