    But a pick 4 years from now from any team could land anywhere.

    Maybe, but for the right player - someone who is young enough to be in our core.

    It was a bold move when we overpaid Ariza to bring him here. It was a bold move when we traded a valuable prospect and a draft pick to take Chriss. We've made plenty of risky and bold moves, it's time to be smart especially with our assets.

    those weren't bold moves. they were just stupid. a 1 yr deal isn't that much a of a risk, which usually accompanies something bold. And what did we give up to grab Chriss that made it "bold"? I honestly don't remember the details of that stupidity.

    Bogdan Bogdanovic along with the 13th and 28th pick. Not exactly a treasure trove but a lot for a player that had so many holes in his game and that there didn't appear to be much of a market for. And call those moves what you will, they were as "bold" as the moves people seem to want us to make. I also liken "bold" to risky but the moves talked about here that the poster was responding to seem consistent with the examples I used.

    So we swapped the 13th with whatever pick it was to get Chriss. Bogdanovic's agent warned his player would stay overseas another season than play for the Suns. So basically the only real cost was the 28th pick.

    I wouldn’t call it enormous but i’d side against it.

    I thought the issue with Bogdanovic is he wasn't coming over for a rookie scale contract, he wanted more money. I know Sacramento ended up paying him more, 3 years $27 million overall. I remember reading he wanted to come over sooner but McD wanted to wait, who knows why.

    Well, no. Plus I don't get your logic. It cost us Bogdan, a roughly average NBA player who tends to make big plays in big moments from what I've seen. Even if we weren't bringing him over, he was still a tradable asset. Regardless of how you want to view it, we paid a premium to draft someone that there really wasn't much of a market for. Keep in mind, despite being a Sacramento native, even they weren't very high on him.

    In addition to what was given up for Chriss we also drafted a PF 4 picks before selecting him. Since we just drafted a PF it was a bold move to double down by taking Chriss.

    Just saying I remember there were a lot of happy people here on draft night when we got Bender AND Chriss. Then when it didn't work out, now everyone is talking about how stupid it was. At the time there were a LOT of happy people.

    I was happy. I thought they were different enough, but potentially talented enough, that it was a great opportunity. Little did we know how epically bad that was.

    I was happy too since they were opposites. I thought we fixed PF for a decade or more.
