Jared Vanderbilt and Lou Williams is who I am hoping for at this point.

I think Jarred is restricted and the Wolves are likely to match any reasonable offer for him, Williams would be okay but I don't know how much he has left in the tank.

Lou Williams had a few good games for Atlanta in the playoffs but I don't see how he'd fit here. Payne and Shamet offer more than he does at this point.

Shamet does not offer more than him.

lou can actually handle the ball, create his own shot and somewhat run the offense.

Bryn Forbes is a good acquisition by Spurs.

Players remaining legitimately available who at least are better than nothing:

Ed Davis
Enes Kanter
Bismack Biyombo
Harry Giles
DeMarcus Cousins
Mo Wagner
Jordan Bell
Andre Iguodala
Kelly Oubre
Justice Winslow
Stanley Johnson
Paul Millsap
Mike Scott
Patrick Patterson
Ersan Ilyasova
Khem Birch
Victor Oladipo
Danny Green
JJ Redick
Dante Exum
Josh Hart
Raul Neto
Jeff Teague

Plus their own free agents in Kaminsky, Galloway and Moore.

Sad that it's come to this, with 4 roster spots still unfilled.

The Suns could have and should have done much better.

I wonder why Josh Hart is still available. He can shoot and is a surprisingly good rebounder at 6'5". Hart averaged 8 rebounds per game this past season.

I like Raul Neto and Jeff Teague at point guard.

I can't believe OKC agreed to a buyout. They usually get draft picks for everything.

Knicks becoming Lakers of East coast.
With his contract and his knees (mostly his left knee), it might have taken Wall/Westbrook type circumstances to find a deal. And with all the picks they already have, saving the money is probably far more important right now.

Yeah, I was sort of having fun. OKC believes in holding assets until they get draft picks in return.

I would gladly take any 3 of the listed to replace Frank, Langston and Etwaan.

I'm m not a Frank fan at all. He way to inconsistent and the team flow drops when he's in.

Galloway is gone, he wasn't a factor for us and wants way more playing time.

Moore, was more or less a stop gap and like Frank, offensive flow dripped when he was in.

Say no to our 3 and grab 3 others.

I wouldn't touch half the players on that list. And yes, Frank was too inconsistent but his off nights (or invisible nights) is why and when the team flow dropped. There were many nights when he outplayed most of our team. And for a 3rd string big man, I don't know that you're going to find better.

There are better players available than last year's borderline Suns but they want money and minutes, neither comes with the role of last guy off the bench. Also, for many players, giving them inconsistent minutes has a lot to do with inconsistent production. But looking over at that list, there are several that I'd be interested in unfortunately I'm not sure how many of them would fit here (money and PT issues).
