The link above and other various sources say he may opt out, I know we are building around young players but he could be another veteran piece and he can certainly fill it up from the outside.

Im trying to figure out where he would fit! Please tell me. We already have Boris Diaw at the PF position and Gerald Wallace at the SF position. Not only that but we have Vlade Radmanovic!

If we played him at the 4 and brought Boris off the bench we would be even stronger.

Youre saying Hedo better than Boris? You got a point but Boris does so much for us!

He def. does not do as much as Diaw I will say that no argument, but Hedo has to be a more clutch, better shooter.

We only have the MLE to offer (doubt that's enough) and we have to re-sign Felton.

First of all we don't have the money to sign him (Dang it Nazr/Diop/Radmanovich/Okafor), I think he was going to get more than the MLE if he didn't opt out next season anyway plus we need to resign Felton

Second of all he doesn't fit with the club, Boris needs to start in order to maximize his production (see Phoenix situation); Also we need a Shooting Guard or true Cener, not another SF tweener

Plus he is getting old and will probably start to decline significantly after next season if not sooner. He knows this and wants to get paid as much as he can. Think about having Turkoglu on your team when he is 35!

In addition Im not convinced he's not a product of the system similar to a lot of players in Mike D's system. Its just fishy he broke out randomly when he was almost 30.

That's what us Suns fans thought when Amare came back in 06-07.
Diaw is nowhere near as effective if he's not starting.
You guys will feel our pain if you have to endure a Diaw off the bench.
