He's a difference maker. Need defensive stoppers. Draymond Green type.
I hate dirty play, I hate actors. I think they are horrible for the game. So no, I don't need his kind of difference maker on the Suns. But you're right, he probably will make some team better.

Fair. I just want a championship.

Me too and I want it bad enough that if he was here and we won a championship, I'd be a sell out and cheer him on. I just can't stand the thought of having him on the team and still not winning it all and that's far more likely.

Disappointing night for Knicks fans. Is OKC really adding 3 lotto picks to their roster?

I saw comments here about Perkins talking about DA but nobody pointed out that he started that segment by saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure". What an idiot. Not wanting to pay him max dollars doesn't mean he's viewed as trash by the team.

He hasn't consistently played like a max player yet but that's true of many rookie extension max players. I guess, if we don't pay him, it will mean we're confident he'll never be worth the max (rightly or wrongly) but it's not proof that we think he's trash.

I always thought all along we would let DA get signed and then match that. That lets us sign him to four years instead of five, like we wanted all along. I've always thought that was more plausible than sign and trade. If we didn't have DA and were trying to win the NBA title, and DA is arguably the best AVAILABLE FA, we would try and sign him. We would be a worse team without DA, unless we get KD, LeBron, etc., instead.

Pistons acquiring big man Jalen Duren. Hmmm.

Detroit adds Ivey and Duren. If they really like Duren, I don't see them pursuing DA.

Good back up plan. I think we told them we did not want Grant. They also believe we would match. So they are looking at the outside in for DA at this point. They still have a lot of cap space.

Did Charlotte offload Hayward in that trade?
