    Its going to be tough to stomach if our offseason is Baynes/Joseph/saric while the Lakers add AD and Walker.

    Its one thing if the suns try their hardest to land Russel or another top guy and strike out. As a fan I'm ok with that. Focusing on bottom feeders for cap considerations while passing on real talent will frustrate fans and Booker.

    Booker is going to be well aware of how hard the suns pursue Russell. If the Suns play it safe, pass on Russell for Joseph to save a few bucks we better win next season or it will rip this team apart.

    IMO they need to make a real attempt at bringing in Russell or another top guy and retain Oubre. We will need both to be competitive and generate excitement next season.

    SAS on first take reporting that Kawhi to the Lakers is really gaining steam.

    According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Knicks interest in DeMarcus Cousins is only "mild."
    Marc Stein of the New York Times reported earlier this week that New York was considering extending a "considerable" one-year deal to Cousins if they miss out on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving during free agency. However, that didn't seem to make much sense, considering how well Mitchell Robinson played as a rookie last season and Cousins reputation as a headache in the locker room. Per Berman, "team president Steve Mills wants players who fit the bill of being able to tutor their young players."

    Booker already knows how hard they are going to pursue Russell. If they are smart and they are giving him a big offer, they already told Booker what it would be and Booker has already “let it slip” to DLo. Just like LBron is doing with Kawhi.

    Man that would really piss me off and move my disdain for the nba further down the continuum. I appreciated Kawhi for taking a close team over the top. But then taking the path of least resistance kinda unwinds his hard work last year bc he didn’t choose to go to the raptors and win, he didn’t have a choice.

    Kawhi really is a weird dude.
    He goes from being the best player in the NBA, to playing second fiddle to Lebron? Come on man.

    Perhaps the Suns have interest in Brogdon.

    If the Warriors keep Durant, and Kyrie is interested in the Lakers, then DLo will remain with the Nets.

    This is from the Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst article:


    This year, the player who seems to be squarely in that zone is restricted free-agent guard Malcolm Brogdon. With the Milwaukee Bucks facing a luxury-tax bill if they re-sign Khris Middleton, as they are expected to do, teams could challenge Milwaukee with a so-called toxic offer sheet for Brogdon. League executives believe a team could construct an offer sheet with the highest salary next season and then descending payments combined with a player option and possible bonuses that the Bucks might have to pay, but a new team might not.

    The Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics (if they don't land Kemba Walker), Phoenix Suns and Mavericks could consider an offer sheet for Brogdon and test the Bucks.

    To be able to offer a big contract for Brogdon, the Suns need to stretch Johnson.
