    With Frank out for a prolonged time and baynes missing a lot of time I’m having difficulty understanding jones not going out to get another big.

    I don't believe they have a roster spot. They had a two-way, but anyone worth anything wouldn't sign a two-way.

    Hadn’t considered that. There’s no way around that? Surprising.

    Well, he could stop prolonging the inevitable and declare Kaminsky out for the season...

    This would be a sweet gm to win considering Memphis playing well as late

    As always need a huge gm from booker ayton and hope someone from the bench shows up. Maybe carter will show up since its his former team.

    Go suns

    The injuries are real enough. I was hoping with the Baynes rumors that there was a delay in his returning to action because of a trade.

    They really have to win this one if they want to make the playoffs.

    They'd have to waive someone. I am guessing it would be Okobo, Carter, or Diallo. I am guessing that even if they make a trade, they'll end up in a similar situation.

    Again, incredibly poor roster management by James Jones.

    I want them to keep Carter. He's shown enough that he's worth a roster spot. Waiving Okobo and resigning him on a Two-Way deal might have been an option but since he's not making much, league minimum, he might not clear waivers. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried speaking with his agent about that and they weren't receptive.

    I think they can get a disabled player exception right now. I don't mean the one for salary but the one that gives them a roster spot. Teams are now able to sign players to 10 day deals and the Suns could really use a big for 10 days, at least. If that player works out then they'll need to make room but the trade deadline is February 6th, they need to do something.

    I wouldn't count on James Jones to be that proactive. Expect him to continue sitting on his hands and doing nothing.

    I'm not sure the Suns can open a minimum salary spot by simply waiving a player.

    A disabled player exception is an interesting idea although I think a trade might be the best option.

    Just arrived at FedEx forum for #Suns-Grizzlies on a very somber day in the NBA. Pregame coach availability is scheduled to begin in about 25 minutes as usual, but we are told pregame locker-room player access will be suspended for games today due to extraordinary circumstances.

    Or they can waive Tyler's Johnson after the trade deadline.
