    Why do we need to draft a pf? We certainly have bigger needs such as pg or center.

    Agree the Suns need a PG and a center but the hole at PF is glaring.

    Bender and Chriss are not getting the job done. Maybe the Suns can fill one of their needs via trade.

    Slin was right about Bender and wrong about Chriss. I know it was meant to appease Booker but man, Ulis went two spots ahead of Brogdon.

    We need to keep our eyes open for high producing upper classmen with those late picks. They can often produce immediately.

    Perhaps the Suns should trade their second round picks. They would likely be more successful. :?:

    In more recent history, only Dragic and Gortat come to mind as good second round picks.

    And the Suns traded the rights to Gortat.

    Speaking of him, does Slin still post here?

    They sold the #36 pick outright - the one the Magic? used to sign Marcin.

    I'll be excited when he has 5 good games out of 6 or 7. We know he can play. The question now is how consistent he can be.

    He has a long way to go before he gets to Alvin Adams territory. Working on that .385 career FG% is a good place to start. Along with improving the rebounding and overall D.
