    As the NBA trade deadline approaches on February 7th 2020 there will be lots of trades and rumors.

    Thought it might be fun to have a thread to talk about it.

    The Jazz already got the ball moving when they traded for Jordan Clarkson.

    KAT would take Ayton and some unprotected 1's.

    Really ballsy, but balls is probably the only way to get us out of this franchise quagmire.

    I would pull it, Suns land Russell after Tyler Johson clears as well, Kat, Oubre Baynes, Russell Booker, that be a solid squad

    How about Ayton, Tyler Johnson, Kaminsky and two 1's (this year's top 10 protected and a future unprotected) for Towns and Bell?

    We would need Tyler Johnson as salary filler in the Ayton for Towns swap.

    Pull the trigger on KAT, the only teams that are relevant in this leagues are those that either get lucky and draft a top 5-10 player or those that are aggressive and go out and get one , and since we all know how much the sun's suck at drafting that only leaves one choice

    It’s Minnesota that’s holding the gun. They won’t deal him unless he makes it ugly publicly. That’s the way it’s always been...

    Really it's KAT holding it, it all rides on him wanting to leave or not and my money is on him saying he wants to get traded

    KAT has very little leverage. Jimmy Butler wanted out and they played hardball with him before finally making a deal to send him to Philly. They held out long enough that they got a decent return on the Butler deal. They can tell KAT to sit back and shut up because they have him for 4 1/2 more years.

    They have some pieces they can move to try to make him happy, which is more likely what would happen if he's really unhappy and wants out. Wiggins isn't the negative asset he was last year and they have a large expiring in Teague as well.

    I think they'll try to make a move to please him before they give in and listen to his trade demands. It's a similar situation the Suns would be in if Booker asked out, there is just too much time left on his contract to be making demands.

    Players used to love playing in Phoenix. Great weather. Lots of upscale big city perks. Honest ownership respectful of players.

    You've got to be a first class tool to screw that up.

    Who wants to live in Minnesota? During the WINTER?

    Hopefully with the hiring of Monty and having young stars like Booker and Oubre, Phoenix can be an attractive place to play again. Also if there is a chance to get KAT you have to do it...

    Phoenix is a great city for NBAers. They get to live here during the winter and get out of Dodge during the summer. Its perfect.
