    Probably one of those nagging things....and it helps that the Suns are still in the hunt that matters, the Zion Williamson hunt.

    Wouldn't it be crazy to get #1 overall again, and score two franchise players in back-to-back years???

    Im fine with 1 or 2 at this point. Not sure how Zion and Ayton would blend but he damands the #1 pick IMO. Im higher on a Ja, Booker, Oubre, XXX, DA lineup personally.

    Of course: XXX, Book, Oubre, Zion, & DA would attract a ton of Free Agents. Could you imagine Kyrie at the PG spot?

    Well, at least he won't be driving up his value any more...his post all star #'s have been strong.

    This might make him more affordable, but he's been fun to watch, and I wanted to see him play out the season to prove if it was for real. Pretty sure we re-sign him though.

    Yeah, they are a more entertaining team when he plays, but maybe this keeps his price tag at 15M or under? His RFA status cant hurt.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up for for 15m or less. I think hoping for 20m or less is more realistic.

    We'll see. His uptick with the Suns would be what you're paying for, because his #'s the last 2 years with the Wiz (12.5/4.5) were certainly not indicative of a 20M a year player.

    The Suns need Oubre back for sure. He has been an integral part of the team.

    They have glaring needs at point guard and power forward. Hopefully they can fill at least one need in the draft and the other need through trade and/or free agency.

    Does anyone know if we need to share Oubre's medical information with other teams? I know he's a RFA and that complicates things some. I'm not sure if we're required to disclose his medical info with another team that inquires about him. I'm not sure if that's something required in free agency at all though, restricted or not. I was just curious if there is anyway we could play this that helps us.

    I'm pretty sure we're required to disclose his medical info although it might be situation driven (probably when the agent requests it). But regardless, doing anything even remotely questionable in an effort to decrease his FA market would be a really bad look for an organization that still has work to do mending the player relationship fences that Ryan burned down.

    I agree. Suns need to be very careful there. They cannot do anything that would create even a tiny appearance of potential impropriety. I would attempt to reach an agreement with him now.
