That would be a great spot for Kevin McHale. He could send us Ayton in a few years.

I'd guess David Griffin.  17 years with the Suns before his 7 year stint in Cleveland.

Thatís what you get for not letting us work out Josh Jackson which turned out great for us in the end. Lol

Good call.

I wonder if this is followed by an overpay for PBev. Iím hopeful itís followed by an overpay for Rozier, even as a T-Ro Stan.

I disagree. Salty would never fit in a tire fire situation.

Nope. His disappearance mysteriously coincided with McD's unraveling.

salty strikes me as the kind of guy that makes lemonade out of burnt tires.

Now they fire him.
After the offseason.
Great timing.

Until the last 5-6 years, Phoenix was a solid franchise.
