    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    The odds disagree with you. I posted them earlier in the thread. That might be how you feel but it's not true.

    NBA Draft 7-29-2021: Suns select?

    Trading 2nd rounders is not undervaluing picks. Trading for players who can contribute now verses in a couple years for a team in win now mode is not undervaluing picks. JJ made it clear the team was in win now mode and he was going to make moves that supported that view. He was not taking...

    Was he splitting time with Mike James in April? If so, sign me up again. TOR - 10 points / 4 assists NO - 18 points / 8 assists MIA - 30 points / 3 assists CHA - 20 points / 1 assist PHI - 17 points / 3 assists MIN - 19 points / 5 assists CHI - 13 points / 1 assist CHA - 17 points / 2 assists

    2021 NBA Free Agency and Trades

    We just got out muscled and were outsized against the Bucks and the guy is OK with CAM playing PF?!?!?! That almost ruined the entire article for me. :lol:

    I just read this 5 minutes ago. This is pretty good. Although I completely disagree with the author on his suggested signing.

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    This comparison is almost meaningless as well when the sample size is 50% of Shamets and their primary roles are for different positions.

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    Either that or he was doing what they asked him to do in that offense in that situation. We have seen how that worked out for Booker prior to this season too. He likely won't be asked to dribble as much here and our offense is a perfect fit. His efficiency in those spots is exactly where they...

    Him being a one year rental is legit regardless of how he plays. If he rides the bench he is gone next year. If he plays well? He still might be gone. Remind me. His contract is up after next season right?

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    His volume compares to our best 3 point shooters. Most of our 3's come from corners or catch and shoots. His numbers in those two areas are comparable to our best shooters. Catch-and-shoot 3s = 40.5% Corner 3s = 45%

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    The comparison with Galloway wasn't a good one. It had a LIMITED SAMPLE SIZE. He never got off the bench. It's easy to make your numbers look better when you can't get any minutes. I have not seen Carter's numbers but same thing. Show me a single point last season where Carter or Galloway...

    The Suns couldn't depend on our back up guards at all so Booker played a TON of minutes. They had a hard time keeping Booker/Paul off the court because of it. Also, if his declining numbers that he has now are any indication? I will take them. He would be the 3rd best on the team. LOL.

    No that doesn't bare out at all. Carter would not put the volume or efficiency in threes. Shamet delivered in that area when giving playing time. Carter delivered zero when given playing time. So he sat.

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    How so? You still have to do something with the opportunities. It's the NBA. He put up really efficient numbers from the 3 and in volumes that rivals all but 2 players on the Suns. I would say that is more than marginal improvement over two guys who couldn't get off the bench. I don't think...

    Why are you assuming Shamet won't produce? Why are you assuming it would be the same?

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    I disagree. Shamet immediately adds a another 3 point threat to the team that can handle the ball better than either Galloway or Carter even though that likely won't be his primary role. Neither of those guys could put up the volume Shamet does with the efficiency he does. Neither of those...

    Check out the videos I posted on him. His shot is really smooth.

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    He may not be. However, for starters Shamet is the more explosive offense player and his numbers would have put him as the 3rd best 3 point shooter on the team. The Suns in multiple games went cold from three and he can pass.

    I will say it again. It has no bearing whatsoever if Carter never gets off the bench. If he doesn't get off the bench he wasn't contributing defensively.

    That's how all teams work. They all plan for future flexibility in the future. As long as Sarver isn't fire selling the team or getting rid of picks simple because he doesn't want to pay I don't care.

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    This guy might ride the bench all season long. That is a distinct possibility but I can see why Monty wanted him. His style of play meshes with our team.

    Landry Shamet traded to suns for Javon Carter and 29th pick

    I don't think anybody thinks being a primary back up to PG is his role. However, he has played the position, is confident he can play the position and ran a point offense in college where most possessions came through him. It will be up to Monty to assess if he thinks he is good enough to play...

    Oh not sure. Don't pay much attention to their draft history.

    How the hell the Lakers made this deal without giving up any future number ones in the mix is unreal.

    Man...the 76ers are smoking crack asking for something like this. Everybody knows they want to unload him.
