    On Monday the Suns play at the Grizzlies with the game scheduled to start at 5 p.m. Arizona time.

    It looks like there are questions whether Booker will play as he landed wrong and Daniels reportedly tweaked his back in the Rockets game.

    The Suns have 32 more games remaining including the Grizzlies game.

    Here is Scott Bordow's game update.

    No need to risk anything. Let Booker, Daniels, and Chandler rest.

    The fact that the Suns would give Memphis a larger lead in the standings should they lose is purely coincidental.

    This would be an absolutely epic tank loss!

    I'm all for these losses, and I thought a lot of people are, but when I read some of the prior game threads people are apoplectic with each loss?

    Isn't that what we wanted, we have two consistent good NBA players now In booker and warren, the rest are either 20 year olds who we are developing and looking to see incremental progress or washed up vets... Which is exactly what a rebuild should be.

    I’m all good with the losses... I just want a new GM to rebuild the team with a new coach and top draft pick.

    Letting McD anywhere near those decision is a recipe for disaster.

    I would have been fine getting rid of mcd summers ago when he was doing idiotic stuff like signing IT when we had two point guards....

    But they're actually in the middle of the right plan now so why change?

    No... they’re at the end of his SECOND plan, both of which have been spectacular failures... one plan with Horny and every PG in the world... the second with Watson and a hodgepodge of vets (Bled/Chandler) and youth.

    I’m not calling for his head NOW. Let this season totally train wreck. But allowing him to call the shots for franchise changing decisions for a THIRD time rebuilding is insanity.

    Who do you think the Suns can hire? Are Beuffort or Presti available?

    It’s not my job to figure it out. That’s for Sarver to Investigate and actually... GASP... maybe spend big bucks on someone at that position for once. He throws peanuts at GMs and Coaches. Always has. And he’s gotten what he’s paid for.

    But just accepting that we can’t get anyone better than one of the worst GMs in the league... from a winning percentage... personnel and even personal standpoint makes it pointless to even watch.

    Let me put it in another way. Do you trust McD to choose our next head coach? If so, why?

    I mean... this is like the old Rod Graves arguments Kool-Aid Cardinals fans used to make.

    You might be able to accept that the Suns literally can’t get anyone better than one of the worst GMs in basketball, but sue me for thinking we deserve at least a CHANCE to find something better than atrocious.

    That is your opinion, based on your perception. There is zero evidence that your claim is true. I get it, I am not a huge McD fan either, but he is not one of the worst GMs in the NBA.

    I think McD has done a decent job. Remember Lance Blanks. That is a lot to overcome.

    McD has been ok, he's 50/50 or so in drafts, based on the years and not the number of picks. He's also done well with the trades he's made. I have more faith in him than whoever Sarver would hire as his replacement this summer. You can't build a contender over night and every team is looking to improve so it's not like there isn't competition to improve. If the Suns don't improve next season then by all means let him go but he should have the chance to cash in the assets he's acquired.
