What's the story with Richaun Holmes in Sacramento? He seemed to be doing really well and even got a new contract, but then fell out of favor.

If we had our 12.5m MLE, I'd try Brook Lopez and Plumlee who are UFA. For trades Adams, Turner might be available?

I think the Suns taxpayer MLE will be around $5,000,000. They didn't use it last season.

The biannual exception will be around $4,448,000. The Suns didn't use it either.

Also, the Suns received a trade exception in the Saric trade for $4,975,371.

Motrezl Harrell is a similar case. Neither is really a center, but both are probably available.

Another benefit of being rid of Sarver. I wonder how much better of a team we could have had if Sarver hadn't sat on those for the last... oh, I'm going to guess... every year.

With Holmes it seems more to do with character and that’s one of the reasons we moved on from him.

I think Lopez has some tread left on that tire. I'd beep Bizzy and Landale behind him.

We are the Phoenix Suns we don't know how to center. Just get it over with and grab up all the horrible shooting guards we can find.

If only the Suns had embraced point guard city. The Suns passed on a bunch of good ones in recent years.

Here’s what I want,

An Oliver Miller clone who doesn’t like donuts

Seriously has this team ever had a good center?

Off subject a bit but does anyone remember Mark West? Literally he would be called for a foul walking onto the court.

Robinson isn’t really good and if Warriors culture couldn’t get Wiseman right I want no part of him plus he’s never played more than 45 games bad attitude and injuries is not a good combo
Beggars can't be choosers. We have very little in terms of assets to obtain a center.

I am just listing youngish guys I think would be adequate long term solutions IMO.

We have a guy who’s better than both on the roster now.

The Haliburton miss really pisses me off. He gonna be special.

Yeah, don't get me going.

The Suns passed on Fox for Jackson, possibly could have traded for Shai and could have drafted Haliburton.

No kidding. But the consensus seems to be he has to go at all costs. I thought the question was just what were replacement possibilities.

Hayes seems like he just floats through games. Same as Ayton.
