    I didn't follow villanova at all or watch the end of the tournament, is it fully expected than Divencino will be an absolute knockdown three point shooter at the next level? If shai is gone, which he will be, we should consider Divencino.

    As everyone has stated, 3 point snipers on the roster is a must.

    We might be able trade down into the 20's to get him.

    do you have a link to the interview.

    I am mildly interested in Sexton. His speed, body control, and ability to finish are amazing. But if he cannot do better in the other areas, he won't work.

    Yep. Also a good get in case Booker has durability issues going forward.

    If he could just improve his outside shot he could be the quintessential 6th man. I doubt he will ever become a good all around point guard but his ability to draw fouls could make him an incredible one man weapon.

    Here is McDonough on the #16, 31 and the 59 picks. I'm intrigued the Suns might choose to move up in the draft especially for a PG.

    I trade anything except Ayton, Jackson & Booker to move up to take Young. That would be a young & cheap Big 4 for the next 3 years (Booker definitely being the most expensive piece starting next year). If PHX brings in Young & Ayton with a couple of veteran pieces they are a playoff team next year IMO.

    “We’re open to moving those picks for a player to help us move forward or even to move up in the draft,” he said. “Number one’s probably not (available), unless a scenario falls out of the sky that we’re not anticipating.”

    The Suns plan to be aggressive in free agency and find veterans to increase the age of the team, McDonough said. With the No. 1 pick in hand, the Suns have found a way to accelerate #TheTimeline

    Who would you trade #1 for? Anyone?

    Young sure seems like he has smarts...maybe not Nash smarts, but he can work on it.

    Antetokounmpo is the only one I would consider.

    Him and Anthony Davis. Davis is the best player I've ever seen live.

    Can't believe we have an asset like this. I woke up this morning, and as I was getting out of be it hit me again. "The Suns have the #1 pick!" McD must be beside himself. His whole career was riding on that lottery.

    Now back the the point of this thread. 16, 31, 59. We are in pursuit of a pg. Here are our options, even if unlikely.

    Trade up in the draft: Doncic, Young, Sexton, SGA.
    Just draft: SGA, Shake, Shamet, Melton.

    Free agency: Chris Paul, IT, Rondo, VanVleet, Lin

    Potential trade: Kemba, Shroeder, McCollum or Lillard?, other.

    Inside: Elfrid, Ulis.
