    I still can't believe we traded two firsts(one in what was to be believed to be a loaded draft and another unprotected future) to move up, only to draft ANOTHER SF, when the team was already log-jammed at the position, clearly planning on adding ANOTHER in FA all while a solid PG prospect was still on the board.

    Man, outside of the no-brainer pick with Ayton, last summer's coaching decision, use of assets and cap room were just beyond pathetic.

    Ryan McDonough was an awful GM. Just awful.

    At the same time, if they make the same mistake this summer (stockpiling more wings while ignoring gaping holes at point guard and power forward), we know either that the problem is really Sarver or that James Jones is just another McDonough in the making (only with better people skills).

    Not disagreeing at all , but I do hate the way people always say we traded 2 firsts to move up, they traded one first to swap 1sts , I know I'm nitpicking but it just makes it sounds worse saying it that way

    Agreed. I always think this same thing.

    I'd consider it since Smart is on a reasonable contract for a number of years and he can play besides Booker.

    The Suns could still draft a player like Ty Jerome at #20 and add a big in the second round or vice versa.

    I'm trying to convince myself to like White if the Suns go that direction.

    Admittedly I'm not high on White like I was Shai. However, he stands at 6'5", only 19, athletic and can score the ball. I think there is upside.

    A lot of his turnovers seem due to poor decision making. At least there is a chance he can steadily improve his game.

    Few of these players in the draft are ready to start outside of Zion so it's a gamble no matter who the Suns select.

    This is a draft where if you can trade the pick, it's likely worth considering.

    I could get behind the pick if it happens I just won't be overly excited, whites decision making makes him look like JJ but as a PG which worries me , but he can at least shoot so that's something we haven't had at the PG position for a few years

    I'm the least excited about this draft since I can remember.

    I keep repeating to myself White has skills and he is only 19.

    If the Suns could trade down or trade it for a player, it would help get the adrenaline flowing.

    I understand the Suns have worked out Luguentz Dort but I'm not sure if it has been posted.

    On other team sites, I have been seeing a lot of interest in Dort. Funny, not so much here in AZ. I think he will be solid. I enjoyed listening to his play on the radio this last year. I was working out of town quite a bit and would catch the games on the radio while driving.

    To me he's kind of like Alfrid Peyton with a better jumper. The best part of his game to me, is his range on the three. Decision making, and changing speeds during a play. He has that young man's go 100 miles an hour all the time. When he starts getting that change of speeds in his game, he will get a lot better.

    I think there was some discussion about Dort but not much. He is a physical specimen but doesn't have a lot of tangible skills at this point in time but he knows how to get to the free throw line.
