    that's an option
    -- for the #1 pick?

    i mean, talk about leading teams to bad records, Booker's the one who rode this horse down for all 4 straight years and if he can't accept that it's on the rider as well as the horse, both parties will be better off parting company

    Sure, though I don't think any team is giving up Zion for Booker...

    i'd throw in a future pick too
    and/or Warren

    after all, TJ also rode this horse down
    that would make it a full rebuild in the past 2 years

    you do realize that we're the "ignored" by a few posters who would irritated by this frank discussion,
    and who believe we're the same person anyway

    yeah, that's it. i have been replying to myself in an effort to work out mixed emotions

    I must say, 1tin, that I don't think any team would bypass Zion for Booker.

    Even with a future pick and Warren thrown in.

    Zion would be their pick! The wouldn't let him go by for a future pick.

    And Warren is similar to Booker. A Wing scorer (who wants to start).

    As a Suns fan, I would love to see Zion here, especially as protection for Ayton.
    Even if I wouldn't bet the ranch that Igor could make it work.

    Anyway, unless we luck out in the draft, it "ain't gonna" happen.

    Mike Conley would move the needle more than Tyler Johnson and shouldn't cost much more than salary matching.

    To what purpose? To possibly compete for an 8th playoff seed? It's not like Conley will be around when we are relevant.

    wouldn't that be good for the young guys... to get that competitve taste in their mouth earlier than later? I mean, if it's Tyler Johnson and a 27-33 win season or Conley and a shot at 40-45 wins, I don't see why we'd want the former. Especially if we were still able to draft Morant and getting Conley wouldn't cost us much in the way of mortgaging the future, sending Johnson, TJ and say a lotto protected first their way or the Milwaukee pick.

    Not to mention Conley would actually help make his teammates better, especially as compared to the offensive black hole that is Tyler Johnson.

    No chance the NBA doesn’t make sure Zion goes to the Knicks. Big market means big money!

    I agree with Cheese once again. Winning a bit and fighting for a playoff spot is, in my opinion, part of their development.

    Would love to see Zion, but getting JA Morat wouldn’t be so bad if Zion is a Knick. But more importantly, sure hope we can find a way to sign Obre Jr.. He is a stud. He is looking for a max contract though right?

    This would be the ultimate egg in the face!

    Conley’s contract expires in 2 years and that’s the best part about it as hopefully Morant or perhaps Okobo/Melton will be ready to take the reigns by then.
