    He was ready to go to Indy before the Brogdon trade.

    Solid addition, and they should be able to still sign Oubre or????

    Melton and Okobo are enough.

    We assume it's 17 mil a year. Deal could be back loaded. Maybe not all guaranteed.

    It depends on who is around him.

    Yes he was - but people will say he wasn't, because he was only mentioned as a possibility, not the favorite.

    But he was going to sign with the pacers, and would have if they were not able to get Brogdon for a song.

    He literally has been a starting point guard for a playoff team.

    Agree, that is the key!!! We need a play maker not another shooter.

    Yeah, technically true.

    What I mean is he is a below average starter obviously.

    I really do not think he makes the Suns any better - I feel like this is wasted money.

    Rubio, Oubre, and Saric. James Jones filling roles. I am not going to get all out whack out of the loss of TJ Warren. We chose Oubre over Warren, plain and simple. I would love to have moved him without giving up a pick, but that was a second rounder and we do not need more young players.

    Like I said, it could be lower dollars for the first year.

    Yeah - and they could not wait to replace him because he was by far their worst starter.
