Lose Steve Nash for draft picks.

Gain Goran Dragic, and maybe get Gordon from NOLA in S&T.


Biggest loser, Darryl Morey.

Soooo... PG's in play. Felton, Lin, Lowry....

Teams looking for a PG still... Houston, Mavs, Toronto (maybe -- might sit on Calderon), Knicks (to re-sign Lin).

Not pretty.

Good for the Suns for getting Dragic back but this seems like quite the overpay.

Contract not bad either, Dragic is worth $7mil maybe so we didn't overpay by much.

If Gordon isn't matched by NOH, thats 3 big moves for PHX in 2 days good job.

Considering Dragic wanted 50mill/5years and the suns got it down to 34mill/4years that is a very good move. If I'm not mistaken the rockets offered a similar deal of 8-9 mill per year but dragic turned them down.

Nice for the suns. Makes Marshall almost a lock to go to NO if a S&T is put in place. I'm not mad because jack isn't gonna cut it at PG for us.

Paul Coro: Goran Dragic contract tweak: it's a 4-year, $30M deal with potential to be $34M from annual $1M All-Star bonuses. 4th year is player option.

If the suns can get Gordon, I think they should trade for Howard & anderson


pg Dragic
sg Gordon
sf Beasley
pf Anderson
C Howard

If it's only a one year rental for Howard so what... that means the suns should be able to get Howard cheap.

I really would like this team.

We dont have enough assets to get hom though. Best we could do is 2 first rounders, Gortat/Dudley/Childress or something like that. No chance Orlando accepts that.

The suns are all of a sudden looking like one of the snartest FO's in the NBA.

Babby and Blanks turned what could have been losing Nash for nothing into 2 1st rd picks and 2 2nd rd picks.
Beasley was signed for 18mill/3yr. Not bad considering he is the former #2 overall pick and people expect him to be as good a scorer as Melo.
Dragiv was signed for 30mill/4years and he will get a 1mill bonus each year only IF he makes the all star team. Overall dragic wanted 50mill/5yr and suns saved about 20mill.

All the Gm of the suns have to say is this, it's a rental deal...

3 first
2 second rounders ......... and a Gortat... lol

but of course you will need to find more young promising players to send back to them... I know.

I would still like that team though.

Why Dragic when they just drafted their future Point Guard?

Because Kendall Marshall sucks defensively, can't shoot and isn't athletic.

If you can't do 3 of those things ^^ you can't be successful in the NBA. Its a fact.

But hopefully we can fool the Hornets into taking him. Their HC was high on him before the draft so maybe :D

Its insulting to even place Marshall in the same sentence as Dragic.

s**t can't believe I just did that! :mad:

So happy for Toronto. The dhick move on Landry Fields likely caused Nash eventually going to LA. And they are now stuck with the worst starting SG in the NBA while pissing on DeRozan. LOL.

He declined to sign. Reports that he's thinking it over.

Not surprising, not alot of PG's around at this point.

Gurantee you that when NO signs Gordon on that match (and they will match), Suns will sign OJ Mayo.

A lot of Suns fans are thinking the same thing. Once Gordon has a team, Mayo, Brown, Redd, and so forth with begin falling into place.

I think Mayo now will start coming cheap. No team is talking about him.
