Good, decent NBA players are expensive, even the solid role players. Either you draft them or you pay for them. You've just got to know what kind of team you're building and stay laser focused. The Suns need better players all around, and they have players under contract that need to go away...so if a strong rebounder who can defend comes along(for example) and he fits into what you envision in the long run you PAY HIM. What you don't do is pay players that will make your team look better in the short term. I still see no plan or clear direction.
