I thought we would have something by now. If we do soon, nothing else of consequence is happening IMO. Not that it couldn’t but I have a feeling the Suns are going to roll with it. The longer it takes to hear something on him? Maybe that means they are still trying to figure out other moves?

I'm hoping Oubre is part of the Suns plans and he is waiting to sign after another free agent signs.

The Suns can exceed the cap when they sign him.

I am starting to hear whispers that in their desperation and with all of their cap space, the Knicks might sign Oubre to a max offer sheet...
Well misery loves company. Suns and Knicks fans need joint therapy at this point.

Oubre gets absolutely zero attention on the FA market from the national media. Could you imagine if they threw the max at Oubre? Lock all doors that lead to roof top high rises cause a lot of Knick fans would be looking to jump.

Oubre is in the second tier. The second tier has to wait and see where the A List goes.

I'm hoping the Suns have something in the works concerning Oubre. He played like a third piece with the Suns.

He has reason to wait also. We can match any offer, of course, but we can also promise him a 5th year that no one else can. That alone is incentive to wait. It wouldn't surprise me if they have a handshake deal with him already for that 5th year as a sweetener to reward him for his patience.

This is my hope as well based on his hints on twitter about a contract.

Somebody mentioned the Stadium Network for a Shams NBA show but it's not on Dish Network. You can watch a live stream online for free though, it played 2 quick ads before it let me watch but it works now.

First, you should learn how to quote posts. And second, I didn't even mention who I wanted. In fact, in another post I DID say who I wanted, and it wasn't Corey Joseph. LOL
