    With more draft compensation, absolutely. That has been their entire aim in this free agency is making moves to get as many draft picks as possible.

    Look what they did with both Rubio and Oubre. Traded Rubio to Minnesota just to move up to #17 from #28 in the draft and traded Oubre to GS for a protected 2021 pick.

    It's not like they were planning to build a team around the guys they got back and they still could have flipped the players they would have gotten from Milwaukee.

    So what about Baynes. Are the Pels still interested or is the Steve Adams acquisition where they stop. Where else would Baynes want to go? What other teams have the space to sign him? Who is pushing to get out?

    Boston will likely sign him for their MLE.

    No way with Pels now. I think cheese is onto something with clippers? Maybe still Boston?

    I swear Phoenix Suns could have done this:

    Ayton, Booker, Paul, Lebron, Giannis and I can hear it all now. Giannis and Ayton can't play together! Lebron and Paul are both too old! We need a true PF! Who is going to be the back up PG? How does this help our bench? Too many egos and not enough role players. Etc. Etc. Etc!!!

    Unless Boston is willing to trade Marcus Smart (fat chance), there is nobody there that would move the needle for us in a sign and trade. With respect to the Clippers, I don't see them moving Lou Williams (though that would be pretty darn perfect for us). Perhaps Patrick Beverley or a signed-and-traded Reggie Jackson?

    Marcus Morris. 21m per year. Unbelievable.

    How about sign-and-trade Aron Baynes to Boston for Marcus Smart? Just throwing out useless ideas.

    The suns would be dumb not to match it, and demand trade compensation.

    I'd be all over that, but Boston would laugh and hang up the phone.
