    This wasnt even ever a rumor, it was all just message board talk with not even a rumor an innuendo or even an "unnamed source" backing it. The Houston offer beat any offer the Suns could put together (Gortat included) unless the Suns threw in multiple unprotected 1st round picks. We didnt have the ammo to get a deal done. End of story.

    Twitter actually but you're right about the offer destroying our offer.

    I know this is highly unlikely and something we shouldn't do but. How about getting a top 5 pick in the draft then, like phoenixson said, Gortat/Dudley/Brown/Kieff/Our 1st and LAL 2015 1st(lotto protected) For K-Love and AK47. If OKC doesn't win it all trade Scola for Lamb.

    Dragic/Marshall
    Lamb/Tucker
    Ak47/Beasley
    Love/FA or rookie with LA's or MEM pick
    O'neal?? Oden??/Frye

    I would be fine with that. You pay a premium to land a bonafied star, especially a big man. Kevin Love is certainly that. But I dont see the Wolves trading him until he demands out, and if they did I think they'd want parts with a bit more upside than that offer, its not an awful trade but its not quite there... maybe if Marshall were included (Khan loves PGs) and all of our picks this year rather than just the one. Its a steep price but but Love is a star and the Suns really dont have much to offer besides their wealth of draft picks.

    As for the other part, I dont see OKC caring about landing Scola, and certainly not for Lamb. OKC is always building for the future, hard to picture them swapping a 21 year old who was just picked in the lotto for a 33 year old who was just amnestied.

    Scola would look so odd on a team of youngsters like OKC. I don't think he'd mind though. I also think he'd do them some good in the post game. Maybe if we took back Perkins too? He'd be an expiring by then.

    I could see OKC going for it. Specially if they re-sign K-mart. If not we should get him. IF we are able to get Love ray:.

    OKC targets young guys... athletic guys... and if they're not athletic they need to be good on D. None of that remotely describes Scola. He is the opposite of the kinds of players they go for. There are teams that would probably be interested in Scola, but I cant see OKC taking him... even if it was for free.

    Hell no.

    Gortat isn't leaving for OKC unless that Toronto draft pick is coming back to PHX. Plus Dudley's finally playing well so his value may get higher as season goes along.

    Fisher plays defense, they didnt have to give anything up for him and their backup PG was out for the year...

    But other than that great point.
