    The barber shop and barber are legit and have legit ties to Payton and other NBA players.

    He could be the Suns solution for the PG problem if they go big in the draft.

    I would love to think we have that kind of option but the kid disappeared at the end of the season. He is a loon. We only resign him if he is really cheap.

    Well, the Suns will get the chance to match any offers.

    How did you come across the pictures if you don't mind me asking?

    There would have to be a provision in the contract if permitted by the CBA.

    Make the contract no longer than it takes for the hair to grow that long. :p

    I doubt they extend him the QO.

    Most likely. It's a shame he didn't get the haircut during the season.

    They probably extend the QO. They can rescind it if they want to sign someone. If he accepts it, the cap hit is not bad. The qualifying offer is $4.5 million, but the cap hold for him during free agency will be somewhere around $10 million until he is signed. The Suns can come to terms with another player during the negotiating period and still maintain control of Payton, but it will be tricky.

    I don't think they'll keep the qualifying offer out there for long, if at all. I can see them offering a contract right away as sort of a take it or leave it, not sure how much that would be for but probably around $5-6 million a year. That way they don't need to deal with a cap hit that is double that.

    That is a reasonable prediction. The only reason they might keep the QO out there longer is to get something back in a S&T, but honestly, I don't think Payton is going to command that much in salary or trade value.
