Oh damn.

Makes no sense for Phoenix though.

good player but bad pick up, Suns should tank the season to rebuild their team wit top 5 prospects instead of being stuck in the middle year after year

Dragic
Mayo
Beasley
Scola
Gortat

Dudley: 6th man

Do they have enough capspace to go out and get Mayo?

They had enough to sign Gordon to a max offer sheet so yes unless you think mayo will make more than max

How are the Rocket's ******** at all? Instead of being a middle of the pack team(Suns), it seems like Houston is trying to rebuild.

Scola/Frye/Morris pretty solid rotation

Houston is not rebuilding,if you are trying to get Dwight Howard I think your'e trying to compete.

Basically switching spots with the Suns, Houston is tired of being playoff fodder, have at it Suns.

How are the Rockets ********? They cut him, he didn't leave to PHX like Dragic did. They knew a number of teams would have wanted to pick him up. So explain to me how are they "Dumb" and "********" ?

Scola had to go either way so our young guys like Montejunas would have playing time. Scola would not have been a part of Houston's future plans seeing as how he is over 30. He's a good player I love him and all, but why do the Suns need him?

Man if Phoenix got Gordon, that'd be a sick team right there. Hornets matching though right?

Still like what the Suns are doing.

You know it. Four out of five starters are consistent, efficient scorers, and the bench is more than solid. With Scola on board and possibly O.J. Mayo, the Suns went from a fringe playoff team to about 4th-5th seed material.

man the suns are gonna get torched on defense

somebody is gonna have a career point game

Good for Phoenix, now hopefully they can nab Mayo

Still wish they had gotten Gordon

As stupid as that sounds to most, in a way he was holding us back. We've needed to go a different direction ever since we let Amar’e go. I’m not saying that I’m ecstatic with the FO's strategy but at least they have been aggressive and there’s a chance that some of their gambles will pay off. I’ve wanted to rebuild through the draft for a few years but I guess that’s out of the question now.

Yeah defensively that looks pretty icky though. But whatever, they'll be super fun to watch

They have ton of potential, People are saying they are building for a playoff squeaker type team, I don't see it, Especially if a couple of those players grow into something more, Which is certainly possible in Dragic, Beasley, Gortat etc.

Defensively they may need a little help, bring in or trade for a veteran or two than can play solid D and nothing else.

Nice pick up by phoenix, all they really need is some shooters to spread the floor and they can become a good up & coming team...maybe courtney lee to reunite back w/ Dragic & scola

best of luck for him

glad to see he is going to a nice franchise that will at least fight for the playoffs

PHX is looking pretty good with Dragic, Scola, Beasley and Marshall added this offseason, if they had signed Gordon they would be 3-5 seed, IMO

I like Suns fans, I like to think to myself that me and you have a weird relationship.

I have the honor of seeing Steve Nash in a whole new light, so I'm thankful to the Suns for having that go through, And seeing the Suns making moves is good for the division. The suns are in Underrated mode right now, A good bit of potential.
