    Especially given what I'm hearing, the following is my free agent point guard order of preference:

    Brogdon
    Russell
    Beverley
    Wright
    Rubio
    Jones
    Rose

    In my opinion, no other point guard is worth signing at any price, as there would be no improvement over the crud we already have.

    Bleacher report saying Lakers missed out on Kyrie Irving. They wanted Kemba Walker but Celtics getting him. May be making a big push for D'Lo late in the game.

    What about Satoransky - I don't think I have ever seen him play - but his stats look pretty good.

    Otherwise, I mostly agree with your list, but Russell would be #1 for me.

    Satoransky makes Booker and Russell look like defensive stoppers. The team defense would be like a sieve, and Satoransky isn't good enough offensively to make up for that.

    Sporscenter just talked about Dlo. Lakers and Minnesota the only teams they talked about.

    The mystery of the Suns FA PG continues! :hairraise

    Not shocking. One thing that we can say for certainty with this FO is that its leak free. Whether or not that leads to anything is up in the air though.

    Speaking of quiet, we've heard almost nothing about Brogdon really.

    I like Satoransky, he is a poor man's Brogdon.

    Good shooter, tall, mistake-free playmaker, maybe an average defender.

    man the list of options just seems uninspiring to me. I'm really hoping we get to breathe a sigh of relief with Russell signing somewhere else tomorrow. IIRC I had hoped we would get one of the topics in that draft to play him next to Bledsoe. That said, I really don't think we need any sort of dynamic playmaker at the 1. Sure it would be nice, but what we need more than anything is somebody who can run the pick and roll fairly well, hit an open jumper, and most of all play defense. Russell, Booker, and Ayton sounds like a disaster on the defensive end to me. On top of that I don't think Russell is anywhere near max contract great on offense either. Maybe I just need to go watch more of him? I mean if we DO sign him I'll hope like hell that he outplays my expectations. It just doesn't sound like a good idea to me now… If it's even a real possibility anyways.

    Anyways, hope everybody has a great night and whatever they do we see a much more competitive team next year.

    take care
    Joe

    Suns better do something. Next years free agency class is pretty bad. I’d they don’t do anything the countdown to Devin Booker asking for a trade is on and honestly I don’t blame him.

    They need DLO or Brogdon badly

    Sounds like Rubio to the Pacers.

    There’s strong belief within league circles the Bulls and Darren Collison were headed for a marriage had Collison not surprisingly retired Friday night at age 31.

    The timing behind this is weird. I feel like something more will come out. Why retire 2 days before free agency starts? He was a free agency that figured to get around $10 million a year.
