I’ll be honest, considering our stance on first rounders, I might have also. Adding Vanderbilt as starter and being able to run Bojan off the bench with Cam, Cam and Dario/Biz would have been pretty solid up and down the roster.I would have been tempted to give up two first round picks. Then all the Suns would have to worry about is depth at point guard.

I wonder if the Suns and Jazz could revisit a trade this time for Clarkson and Vanderbilt.
Just googled it, he was part of the Fox Sports Dallas team as some kind of broadcaster. But if it's a job with the Suns I would think it would have to be in arena announcing again.Didn't I see him doing color commentary for another team somewhere - was it for Dallas, or am I imagining things.
The more I look at Clarkson the more I think he isn't very good.
He shot really poorly last year and the only thing he really does is shoot. In the advanced stats his offensive vs defensive rating have been in the negative his entire career, win shares he is waaaaay below the league average.
He just had a bad year last year. The year before he was an absolute flame thrower quite often.I used to like Clarkson more than I do now. Maybe a change of scenery would do him good.

He's just a streaky player that will win you games when he is on, and you have to be smart to limit his minutes when he is off.
That said, I thought Millwaukee had a deal for him all but done, but for some reason it has not gone through.
Anyway, it sounds like the Suns were more interested in Bogdan so I doubt that is the route they will try and go.
Maybe we make a run at Harrison Barnes. I think Duncan Robinson is available for Crowder as well, although I don't think that is really what we need.
Harrison Barnes is the player that I would love to see the Suns get if they are unable to land a “star”.I keep wanting to do business with the Jazz but it appears too difficult.
Harrison Barnes would be a perfect fit.
There would almost have to be a third team involved to trade with Miami.
So you think he won the Bogdan deal, because I don't. I guess maybe the cap relief made him think he did, but he certainly lost in player value.Nicely succinct summation of Ainge's attitude; more accurate and to-the-point than "he wants to swindle you" or "he tries to hit a home run with every deal."
The way you value Bojan, yeah, Ainge lost that deal. But I just don't see the value in him that you do so from my perspective he broke even at worst.So you think he won the Bogdan deal, because I don't. I guess maybe the cap relief made him think he did, but he certainly lost in player value.
My guess is he is traded by the end of the weekend. It is odd that it appears to of gotten so acrimonious.
I think it goes back all the way to the end of the regular season. I remember one game in particular where him and CP3 did not appear to be getting along.There were rumors the Suns were trying to trade Crowder around draft time this past summer, so it's been going on a while.
I wonder if it goes back to the playoffs.
