Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

What the heck happened to Baynes? He was so good for us 2 years ago, and now he's worthless?

Re: Around the League: Off-season

It feels like the Lakers are just throwing guys together. There's a lot of talent gathering on their roster, but the fit is the big question. With Melo and Monk on the roster they are starting to look like a deep team. They're lucky that so many guys are willing to sign there for under their market ...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

It makes no sense for him to go back to NOP after getting to the Finals with us. They didn't offer him any more money than we did, and they are a borderline playoff team at best. I'm sure he has nostalgia for his time there, but his situation here is way better. I doubt the NOP offer was competitive...

Re: Around the League: Off-season

I feel bad for Kemba. He was a talented starting PG, but now injuries seem to have derailed his career. I hope he finds his way back.

Re: A dedicated topic cuz we re-signed Chris Paul, Cam Payne, and signed Javale McGee

What other FAs of our own do we still have left unsigned? Kaminsky? Some of the end-of-the-bench guards like Galloway and Moore? I see that Craig signed a 2-year deal with the Pacers.

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

Trade idea: What do you guys think of Cam Johnson and Jalen Smith for Marvin Bagley? Bagley might end up flourishing on a different team, but Cam is a bona fide asset, a borderline starting NBA forward who's an exceptional shooter, great defender, and improving at his ballhandling and drives to the...

Re: Around the League: Off-season

Not a big Bobby Portis fan. He isn't a great shooter and he seems out of control to me. He helped MIL in their title run, but I think he's pretty limited as a player, and I wouldn't want to spend any significant money to get him when we have other more pressing needs like backup C and PG.

Re: Coronavirus

So, um, COVID-19 is back like bellbottoms, kids. Florida alone had 20.6k cases yesterday, highest since February (which was before the vaccines were widely available). All the anti-vax BS has really hampered our ability to reach something like herd immunity and stop the rise of cases. https://twitte...

Another former Sun I'd love to have back for the right price, though given the way we've treated him he's unlikely to take our call:

Re: Around the League: Off-season

I actually really like Westbrook for the Lakers. The fit with Lebron is questionable, but I think he will make it so Lebron can take some games off and decrease his minutes because they'll have another guy who can lead their offense. He is also great injury insurance in case Lebron finally becomes m...

Re: Around the League: Off-season

Winslow is 6’6. He’d be another 3 that would compete with Bridges, Johnson and Crowder for minutes. We really need someone different than them. We need someone 6’8+ who can bruise for rebounds and hit the 3 ball. I don’t see a need for Winslow on this team unless we trade Johnson Bridges or Crowder...

So I guess you can't just throw your team together the night before from a bunch of pampered stars and win a gold medal?

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I think it'd be great to grab Kevin Love if he'd take a very low / minimum contract. He played poorly last year, but I wonder how much of that was motivation and situation. He also stunk on the Olympics, but I don't think that is a good situation for him, either. I think he could contribute next yea...

Re: Draft

This draft will probably be inconsequential for our future. FA is more important. 30% of the starters in the NBA Finals this year were 2nd round picks. We shouldn't discount it so quickly. That was exactly what we did in 2004-05 and beyond and it cost us many good players that could have helped pre...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

He was at a few playoffs games sitting a couple rows behind me with his parents (I think). So he is around. But for whatever reason, we don't want him. We had many opportunities to pick him up, even on a 10-day, when we were in need of big guys. And we didn't. Guessing he just isn't a James Jones g...

Could we convince Big Sauce to come back? Why the hell did we let him leave, again? Answering my own question: Alan "Big Sauce" Williams seems to be playing for Lokomotiv Kuban of the VTB United League in Russia. Presumably we could grab him back if we wanted him? https://en.wikipedia.org...

Re: Draft

This is a big draft for James Jones. He has had one draft where he surprised everyone and found a great 3-and-D forward in Cam Johnson. And he has one draft where he may have picked a bust in Jalen Smith. I know our pick is very late in the first round, but if Jones swings and misses on an odd selec...

Re: The 2021 Suns Offseason

I think I'd target McGee first, and maybe Dwight Howard second. Either one of those guys would bring size and defense at the C spot.
