I would have taken him here at this point. It's baffling that the Suns are clearly the contending team most in need of a big, and yet they can't even beat out the likes of the Pistons, Knicks, Spurs, etc. for one, even at twice the price.

I don't want Howard around Ayton.

I would be happy to get McGee and Zeller. McGee can play the 5 and Zeller can play the 4 and 5.

At this point, so would I, and I am not a fan of either. The problem is that it is looking more and more like that we will be spending the MLE on the likes of Frank Kaminsky and giving Jalen Smith significant playing time.

I love that CP3 and Payne are back, but losing Saric and Torrey Craig and gaining only Landry Shamet is a major step backwards, in my opinion.

It’s been rumored Pacers want to move Myles Turner. He makes $17.5/yr. is there a package we could be looking to create for him?

Not that would interest the Pacers, unless we were prepared to give up players in our top 7 core (namely Bridges and/or Cam Johnson).

Obtaining Myles Turner would be a home run of gigantic proportions.

No more Frank!!! There are much better options, especially for the MLE, and with the production that McGee had and the fact they are linking the Suns to him WITHOUT using the MLE on him, HELL YES!!!!

I would prefer not to have him around Ayton, either, but worse would be having no big in the rotation other than Ayton, which will force Ayton to play scared all of the time due to fear of foul trouble, a problem that reared its ugly head in Games 3 through 6 of the NBA Finals. And now we don't even have Torrey Craig to play center. If Ayton is out of the game, that leaves (ugh) Jae Crowder, Cam Johnson or Mikal Bridges at Center.

Are the Suns just not going to use their MLE this year? Is Sarver getting cheap again?
