It would be interesting to see if the Suns will resign him and continue to develop him. He will never be the kind of offensive player Bridges is, but he can certainly be as good, if not better, a defensive player.
Josh Okogie may have played himself beyond a taxpayer MLE unless he is willing to accept a 1 year deal.
As I recall, Bobby Portis took less to stay with the Bucks. He later signed a 4 year, $49 million contract with Milwaukee.
Plus Portis had bounced from the Bulls to the Wizards to the Knicks and was grateful for finding a home where he felt wanted. Maybe Josh will be grateful he's no longer in Minnesota and is someplace he's wanted but I wouldn't count on it.Portis was much more developed than Okogie. This is JO's first year being a contributor. I think there's a chance the Suns could retain him for another year on a cheap deal, probably biannual exception money. We just need his early bird rights so we can lock him in long term.

People may have discounted the win against the mAgic but I said I believe they were playing good ball lately. Well they knocked off the Clippers today so imo the win the other night was a good win, especially coming off 3 straight losses and feeling a bit of pressure. Hopefully the team can continue to gel and figure out some lineups before KD gets reinstalled and we can get rolling a bit… and hopefully Payne continues his play of the last two games, he imo will be instrumental in general to keep Paul’s minutes down and provide some punch with the bench squad…
Orlando beating the Clippers is big for us.
Was watching with a mate and I knew it would be a game they are young and long and have been playing well lately. They are pushing for a spot in the east and ballin.. better win than most think imo.
