They're not already??
They chose not to trade Kuzma or Porzingis at the deadline despite both being FA’s. They have some nice role players like Monti Morris, Deni Advija, Corey Kispert and Daniel Gafford that could be had. They’d probably take any contract to unload Beal.

The fact that they are FAs tells me they are in the rebuild, doesn't it?

I still think CP3 to the Lakers is not dead. I could see that would be one team CP3 would be willing to go to. Other teams with younger talent, I just can't see him agreeing to go to those teams, and he could always threaten retirement.

NGL CP3 and Lebron kinda scares me.
What if the KD trade never went through? Would you be scared of Booker and Paul as our duo? I wouldn't be. Kinda the same as LeBron and Paul.

It depends. No one is going to be overly concerned if either combination is clearly your top 2 players. But throw in half a dozen other players that aren't too far below that combo, then yeah, I'd be concerned. For us, once we made the trade, we were sort of like that - two scary players and a bunch of self inflicted nightmares playing behind them.

Deandre Ayton is mentioned in this ESPN article as well.


By Adrian Wojnarowski, Senior NBA Insider Jun 7, 2023, 06:56 PM ET:


The Suns insist that they're still working through several possibilities on Paul's future and reiterated that to his representatives later Wednesday afternoon, sources said. Phoenix plans to explore trade opportunities including Paul and Deandre Ayton that could alter the franchise's roster landscape ahead of a final decision on Paul's partially guaranteed contract, sources said.

Makes sense. If the Suns are now exploring waive options doesn't sound like there is a trade market for him. Ayton might be our only hope now to bring in enough new pieces.

Zion getting roasted by pornstars and talk show hosts. Lol

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

Yeah, I spent far too much time on twitter today, cracking up over all that drama.

Pornstar furious because while she was trying to get Zion's baby inside her, a stripper beat her to the punch.
