    Yeah he was arguably the best passer we could realistically get. Wish he was a better shooter, but if he was he would probably be out of our price range.

    This is the part I really don't like about Rubio. He can't shoot well enough to keep opposing defenses honest. He is better than Cory Joseph and Terry Rozier in that department, but not by much.

    I like Rubio over Rozier so I will not complain. Of course Russell or Brogdon would have been a home run.

    Only if opposing defenses don't just sag off of Rubio and crowd the shooters and passing lanes. That being said, at least Rubio has some ability to penetrate and either finish or dish, something that neither Cory Joseph nor Terry Rozier (nor anyone else on the Suns' roster other than Booker) has...

    I would have paid the extra million or two per season and the draft picks to get Brogdon. At least Rubio wasn't on my avoid at all costs list...

    Jerome is already a better shooter than Tyler Johnson...

    Rubio is an improvement but not a huge one.

    Brogdon would have been better (he might have preferred Indiana over Phoenix), Rozier would have been worse.
