I can say with confidence that each of those two players is much better than the other. I just can't tell you which night, which week or which month each of them is the better player.Even though they have different issues Ayton and Bam are very similar. Also, Max Strus shooting 16% from the field in the finals yeeeeesh.
I like Ish but I don't really care if he stays or goes. The problem wasn't Ish, it was that we used an absolute end of the bench player like a key rotation player. That's on Monty for being stupid enough to use him that way or the Front Office for being so incompetent that Monty felt he had no other choice.
I agree but you also need solid practice players. The NBA allows a large enough roster for both especially with the two way options.The Suns need to start developing young players with more upside for depth.
Personally, I would have preferred for them to add Saban Lee to their 15-man roster rather than Ish.
He is going to be 29 when the season starts.

Michael Porter Jr is one of the worst defenders I've ever seen.
It's crazy how well they are playing despite him being an anchor this entire series.
He'd be a great sixth man microwave elsewhere but his ceiling is basically 4th or 5th best starter who can knock down 3's and needs hidden on defense. Got to give Denver credit for acquiring Gordon to be their 3rd star of sorts because MPJ won't ever reach that level. They're probably going to have let Gordon walk eventually because they overpaid MPJ so much. Gordon is making like 60% of what MPJ does.
The Monte Morris for KCP trade ended up being a big move for them also. Washington wanted youth and with Murray back for Denver they needed a bigger off guard who can handle PG's defensively. So that swap was sneaky good. Pope is likely gone when his deal is done also because they're cash strapped with MPJ's deal and his injury history means less teams will gamble on him in a deal that brings back good talent for Denver.
