Portland just keeps pitting Miami and Toronto against each other in a bidding war - everytime somebody thinks their getting Dame Portland goes to the other hoping they'll offer more - I also think this could be a good thing for Phx - meaning we may end up getting more - unless we already have a specific trade outlined in good faith with Portland
A 4th team??There's no way it can just be Portland, Suns and where ever Dame goes. There has to be a 4th team, the Suns aren't selling low on Ayton.
Wellll... Flex just posted this tweet:
"My insider sources tell me there are talks but its just small talk and hasn't hit the serious discussion part yet.. someone leaked this information a little too early."
Can't say I really like any of those deals.Gerald Bourguet lists ten trade proposals in the linked article below to facilitate the Damian Lillard trade.
If the Phoenix Suns try to capitalize on a Damian Lillard trade as a third party, here are 10 potential Deandre Ayton trades that might make sense.gophnx.com
Can't say I really like any of those deals.
The Powell, Zubac and OG, Nurk are the two best IMO a few of those are Putrid, I would prefer none of them.
That's the rub - any of the palatable options for Ayton will never happen! I see no reason to dump Ayton for pennies on the dollar unless he's incredibly disruptive.
To me that is deal is really not better than OG Nurkic. Nance is a good energy guy off the bench but he is not someone you want starting.I’d do that in heartbeat. Don’t think New Orleans even makes it to “goodbye” before hanging up on us.
Funny that one of your biggest complaints about Nurkic is his durability. Val is much more durable (79 games 2 years ago, 74 games this past year). I'm not sure that translates to "a little better" than Nurkic.To me that is deal is really not better than OG Nurkic. Nance is a good energy guy off the bench but he is not someone you want starting.
Valanciunas is a little better than Nurkic but not a lot. At least with OG you get a legit starter at forward.
