As I said yesterday, nothing left in the tank, but still better than nothing, and also better than playing Stix or a shooting guard at power forward.

I wish the Suns could have done this. It is almost like giving Eric Paschall away.

Paul Millsap, as a filler for like 10 minutes a night, is perfectly fine. He played 20 a game last year for a 3rd seeded team.

Whoops sorry guys. Random people keep showing up on my Twitter feed. It is sometimes complicated to sort who is legit and who is not:)

So if the Suns decide to choose between Frank Kaminsky and Aron Baynes, I'd probably go with Frank.

If the Suns sign Millsap I hope it is only for the veteran minimum and keep the remaining MLE and BAE for future options.

It would only be a 1 year deal, and they aren't really looking at anyone other than fillers. Does it really matter? I'd rather overpay Millsap than bring back Kaminsky.

Agreed. People seem to think he was really good for us, but by in large, we played better without him.

Playing him and Ayton together was a disaster so he wouldn't really work at the 4.

Really, if he isn't hot from 3, he was pretty useless.

Overall the stats favor Kaminsky and he is 27 and Baynes is 34. Besides I think Frank is a great locker room guy.

If we didn't sign McGee then I'd prefer Baynes over Frank but since we did we're looking at 3rd string and I'd prefer Frank because he can play alongside Ayton and Baynes can't. I'd prefer our 3rd string players be able to play more than one position.

Millsap is fine in a limited role as a pick and pop guy and can still give you some buckets on the post. He won’t be great defensively but that won’t be the ask of him.

He at least would provide resistance and be able muscle up and bang with an opponent rather than letting him just back up right to the hop or bump him out of the way for a rebound. Outside of Crowder, we are really missing that element.
