    I would too but we don't have salary to match. Check out the trade machine on ESPN, all we have our core players to trade salary wise until those signed this offseason can be dealt, like Crowder, Dario, or even Carter.

    After seeing how awful Damien Jones was early on I started trying to see if the suns could make a trade for a backup big and that's when I learned we have no one available to trade.

    I wish we picked up Kaminskys option this year just to have a 5 million dollar trade chip.

    Rumor is the Kings are shopping Nemanja Bjelica and his $7,150,000 expiring contract. He would improve the Suns big man depth. He has always been an efficient player.

    He could help but again, the Suns have no one to deal for him, and they don't have a trade exception either.

    The only option to add someone that could help is trading away a member of the core (Cam, Mikal or Stix) or hoping someone hits the buyout market.

    I was only throwing it out there as an option not that I would do the trade. When eligible for trade, Carter and change would get the Suns there.

    I get it but I'd rather not trade Carter. He hasn't been as good as he was in the bubble but he help set a tone. His energy and intensity are infectious. We do need help upfront though.

    I'd be in favor of signing Jonathan Motley to a two way deal. He was in camp and played in preseason. I think he's better than Jones and honestly it wouldn't hurt to take another look. He'd help some in the meantime before a deal can be made.

    I thought Motley did a lot of things right even though it was preseason, then next thing you know it he was i think the first to be waived.

    I wouldn't do the trade either. Only wanted to throw a trade idea out there for a big man that was workable.
