    This Oubre situation or lack of movement is getting old. Let’s just get it done. The Suns have a good core with Booker, Ayton, Oubre and Bridges let them grow surround them with quality NBA level talent and maybe add another Star player down the line. If they grow with there talent level expectations the SUNS will be a very dangerous team in the next few years.

    I think $15 million a season is fair with a $5-10 million bump on a multi-year contract.

    For some reason 5/82 or 5/85 keeps going through my head although I'm not sure if Oubre wants to commit this far into the future.

    Maybe 4/75 is another thought.

    If you’re Oubre you take the money. Odds say he will never make that kind of money in the future.

    I have a high appreciation of Oubre's game, probably more than most because he is a two-way player.

    Think 4/75 would be a good deal for the Suns too based on upside.

    Similar or worse?

    Andre Drummond
    Stephen Adams
    Vucevic
    Batum
    Parsons
    Whiteside
    Ibaka
    Gallinari
    Barnes
    Brogdon <-- My personal favorite
    Gary Harris
    Julius Randle
    Ryan Anderson
    Jabari Parker
    Zach Lavine
    Terry Rozier


    I would contend Oubre is better than more than half of these dudes. And is on the come up!

    15 mil makes him like:

    Bobby Portis
    Gorguei Deng
    JR Smith
    Brandon Knight
    Rudy Gay

    Mozgov, Mahimni, & Reggie Jackson and RICKY RUBIO would all be making more

    From what I have seen I like his game also, and I am not a expert but he seems to be a player with upside untapped. 4/75-80 I’m good with. Anything over that we are overpaying.

    I'm good with a modest overpay like 4/80.

    That sets terrible precedence.

    Really? Don't you assume every free agent wants to be here? This team has a cap to manage.

    Suns have been bargain shopping for too log. They need to think bigger... buy a new car.

    I’ve bolded the players that are better, and at the time of their contract signing were already more proven than Oubre. Those guys weren’t signed on potential as would be the case with Oubre.

    The rest are guys who may have been viewed as similar to Oubre - paid on potential - and almost invariably their contracts are viewed as colossal mistakes (Parker, Lavine, Whiteside, batum, Parsons). The closest comp I see is Rozier and I think the hornets are also going to hate that contract.

    In other words I see nothing compelling in your argument to grossly overpay Oubre.
