    Didn't Cousins blast Harden for how he came into this season?

    I would not change a thing with this Suns team right now. I would especially not add a player like cousins. If the Suns were worse than they are now or if they were more established than they are now--I might think about it. But right now they have a really good thing going and they need to really establish this growing identity. This not the time to mess with it.

    I would not go that far.

    If there was a way to get a Markanan I would be very interested.

    Cousins as free agent would be fine, but I would not trade anything for him.

    While I really like the team, I think we would have a lot of problems against the Lakers big lineups if AD comes back for the playoffs.

    Damien Jones was just released.

    I really wish there was a way to get Andre Drummand cheaply to take his place.

    Apparently Damian Jones contract was not fully guaranteed.

    I'm guessing the Suns have someone else in mind or waiting for someone to be waived because they now have an open roster spot.

    The bar for any player coming to the Suns, can they help the Suns more than Damian Jones?

    If the Suns can add a player to help the team, I think you do it. The Suns are positioning for a playoff spot. It remains to be seen who the Suns have in mind. Monty is not going to add a player that he thinks will ruin chemistry.

    The Suns have a rare window of opportunity to compete with the top teams in the NBA. I think this is the time to seize the moment if an opportunity presents itself.

    More from John Gambadoro on the Suns added flexibility.

    The question should be can they help.

    Cousins, IMO, cannot help.

    His impact was questionable before he had a few devastating injuries. At this point he is nothing but a name... a name that complains about playing time and can't defend a chair.

    My standard is help as well. I think the only reason Cousins' name has come up is because he is being released by the Rockets. There should be a number of players being released before the trade deadline so likely a number of options out there. I'm certainly not locked on a particular player. That said, I do think Cousins will be in demand.

    One name I heard being thrown around is Aron Baynes. Toronto has been starting him and it's been... not good. If he was waived, would he be an option?
