    Hmm. Maybe Cam Johnson can give Monty some coaching tips.

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    In regard to the 76ers future draft picks, they have already traded their 2023, 2025 and 2027 first round picks.

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    If rumors are correct, Jaylen Brown has been on the table for a while, yet the trade hasn't happened. An off the wall thought, maybe Brown has said he will not re-sign with the Nets after the 2023-24 season. That would slow things down in a hurry.

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    In regard to the above, the Suns need Crowder's salary to make it work to keep Bridges out of the equation. If Nets could trade Crowder to another team in a three or four team trade for a first round pick it might work.

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    If it wasn't for the recent meeting between the Nets owner and Durant, I think this could have stretched out until the trade deadline. Now it looks like things may happen before training camp. The Suns appear to have the best out of conference offer on the table, but it's simply not enough for...

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    I think that's where we were. We need the Kevint Durant trade situation resolved, so we can move on to Donovan Mitchell, Kyrie Irving, Russell Westbrook, John Collins and so forth.

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    Boston seems to have the pieces to get it done if the reports are true. One has to wonder why it hasn't happened, if accurate.

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    This seems to be the latest update on the Durant sweepstakes, with the Suns lagging behind. The Celtics and 76ers appear to be among the top contenders. https://www.sny.tv/articles/sources-kevin-durant-celtics-landing-spot-marcus-smart-trade Btw, Flex from Jersey was still a believer on his...

    Duane Washington Jr. signs a two-way contract with the Suns

    I may be overly optimistic, but I think Washington has a good chance of being a nice scoring point guard in the NBA. Of course, I felt Holiday could play this role too. Washington is about 3 inches taller, so he can play some shooting guard or combo guard as well. This increases his chances...

    Suns Off-season Thread

    On defense against the Mavericks, it seemed like the Suns big men were always too far away from the hoop, allowing the opponent to run back door plays. The Mavericks would run outside-in plays or inside-out plays and the Suns could never adapt. It was frustrating to see the Mavericks getting...

    Suns Off-season Thread

    I think you did a good job of nailing a lot of the causes. The ones that most stick out for me are the Suns failure on defense to adjust to what the Mavericks were doing on offense. Also, they were also unable to hit the three point shot, plus Cam Payne was unable to create and run the team...

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    So are you thinking the Durant trade situation stretches into training camp and perhaps the season?

    Duane Washington Jr. signs a two-way contract with the Suns

    On the PHNX podcast today they aired about a 19 minute interview with Duane Washington Jr. It starts at about the 37:00 minute mark. Some great stuff as he talks about his uncle Derek Fisher, "Uncle Kobe" and Devin Booker among other things. He has a great personality and should be a solid...

    Suns Off-season Thread

    I think the Pelicans being 10 games under .500 last season is a bit misleading when one comsiders they added C.J. McCollum and Larry Nance Jr. at the trade deadline. They should be a much better team this season even without Zion.

    Kemba Walker linked to the Suns in FA..

    A couple of differences, although not dealbreakers. Ish Wainright is on a two-way contract. Kemba Walker would have to be on the 15-man roster and earn a veteran minimum salary of about $2,905,851.

    An update on the progress of the quarterbacks. Accuracy has been an issue for all the candidates. By Cole Bradley, 247 Sports: Even though Bourguet and Tyson have struggled to show proficiency as passers so far, particularly during 11-on-11 segments, Jones hasn't really separated himself as...

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    I understand Booker and Durant hung out together this summer. Whether we like it or not, this is a player's league. It's taken a long time for the Suns to become a preferred destination. I remember how badly the Suns wanted LaMarcus Aldridge only to see him sign with the Spurs.

    It also sends a message to the Nets and other teams, that he has a key say in where he wants to play.

    The Durant Sweepstakes

    From all reports, Durant wanted to be traded earlier this summer. Since it didn't work, escalating the trade demands seems like the natural progression in talks.

    Trade for Roquan Smith NOW

    So true. He should adopt the philosophy of James Jones.
