I have heard that overall the vet minimum market is supposed to be better than last year's market, FWIW. :(
I just bet the team is going to package picks plus someone like Little to bring in a "higher impact" person for the team. What scares me is that Mike likes to play non-traditional guys at the point which is what the Suns have been trying to do unsuccessfully and that spells more of the same. So, I am not going to be shocked if we still have no PG on this team and they trade for an athletic wing or PF. I have no faith this team drafts anybody.

True, but he’s been successful in doing so. This squad needed a much different offense in the absence of strong floor general.

I think the Suns are looking to pay Royce O'Neal more than perhaps his value so his salary can be used in a future trade.

Nassir Little is a trade candidate now.

Yeah, if anyone wants to chip in a few million dollars to sign me, I'd welcome it. :cool:

Welcome to the club. I'm afraid I'll go undrafted yet again this year, even in a week class. It just isn't fair! No one wants a 40 year old with low miles but bad knees. I can hit FT's like nobodies business but apparently with a negative vertical I won't make it to the stripe to shoot many.

I can help scoot you up the draft board with bad knees and a bad back.

Can't shoot a worth a lick, but I've always been able to rebound and block shots.

I can point guard ands set mean screens. I have 6 strong fouls in me. I also can box out like no other for a guard. I can shoot with either hand. I don't pass cross court or backwards. I don't jump to pass. I don't pick up my dribble early for no reason. I don't pass unless I can see my team mates jersey numbers. I move to get the best angle on a pass. Also, I can predict where the next pass is coming from and play to stop it on defense. I was originally called Slo Mo before Slo Mo. Unfortunately game speed is tuned for geezer league. :)

Better get to Suns camp. They need you.

I could totally see the suns pulling off a stunt like this. Could they give him a one year salary of $30M to trade for a star who is making $120M over 4 years?

They could but they can’t trade him until 6 months after they initially sign him.

Don’t think they can do sign and trade with him.
