The Suns will be serious contenders in the pursuit of Ray Allen, according to sources, even if they are unable to re-sign Steve Nash.

Phoenix will have significant cap space and can pay Allen more than the Heat or Knicks, two teams expected to be in the running him.

Allen was represented by Suns president Lon Babby for most of his career.

Allen has expressed interest in re-signing with the Celtics.

This must be a ploy to make Nash stay because I just don't get why they refuse to rebuild.

Why would Phoenix do that? They need to tear it all down and rebuild from the ground up.

I'd be down for it but that's like the oldest backcourt in the NBA. Nash and Allen have three years left each, and is a lineup of 1. Nash 2. Allen 3. Hill? 4. Frye 5. Gortat going to get you far in the West? They might get to the playoffs but that's about all they'll do.

If they want to get a veteran it'd better be KG. His playoff run proved he still has plenty of fuel in the tank to get it done and would fit in really well with Nash.

Because Sarver is ********. He's almost singlehandedly ruined our franchise.

I've been asking myself the same question ever since we let Amar'e walk.

Phoenix need some outside perspective. Every other fan base knows that the time for the Suns to rebuild is well overdue.

Sign Dragic and just rebuild! (tank for 3 years for 3 top 5 picks like the Thunder)

Dragic
(Top 5 pick 2013)
PJ III (Lottery this year)
(Top 5 pick in 2014)
Gortat

Trade Gortat for picks, re-sign Brooks and start over. Every team has to rebuild at some point.

I rather compete than rebuild. I don't care if they are old, cuz last time checked 2 of them old guys took the heat to a game 7.

Um...If Nash leaves, that would be dumb and the reason why they made it to a Game 7 was because of KG, Pierce, Rondo. Not Ray Allen.

The Suns would still get killed by the Thunder if they re-signed Nash and signed Allen, KG.

Just rebuild. It's time.

Much better to be 1st round cannon fodder and get the 16th pick of the draft every year.

Honestly I don't see why there is so much speculation about Allen. I think he ends up back with Boston. I don't see why they would blow that thing up yet. They can easily put better guys around the old 3 and Rondo. He would be a good fit in Phoenix too. They may make some noise this offseason. It's a hell of a lot easier for a bunch of poster on the internet to "know" a team should re-build than an owner and GM who have to sell tickets and make millions and millions of dollars just to break even.

Nash - Allen - Hill

All they need is Barkley and Shaq back and they would be serious contenders

Suns are morons for even throwing their name in if this is true. Move on and rebuild. Quit settling for old guys past their prime just to sell jerseys and seats b/c of their names. Overpay guys past their prime to vie for the 7,8 seed. Great plan.
