Gambo just said reason Suns did not get Bogdanovich is they were demanding Jared Vanderbuilt as well in the deal, but the Jazz weren't willing to give him up.

Gambo also said Jae Crowder will be traded.

Yeah, I wanted Vanderbilt too. He would have given the Suns the defensive rebounding power forward they needed.

I hope they don't trade him just to appease him. We need to get toughness back in return. We simply can't lose Crowder after losing McGee and not replace any of that. I don't see how this team is supposed to get better if it gets softer.

I would have been more excited about Vanderbilt than Bogdanovic.

Man… if we could have gotten Bojan and Vanderbilt for Jae and a 1st that would have been a great deal for us.

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’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.

It would have been sweet. Vanderbilt could have even played small ball center.

I wonder if the Suns and Jazz could revisit a trade this time for Clarkson and Vanderbilt.

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.

Didn't I see him doing color commentary for another team somewhere - was it for Dallas, or am I imagining things.
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.

I used to like Clarkson more than I do now. Maybe a change of scenery would do him good.

I don't think so, it sounds like the Jazz just aren't interested in trading Vanderbuilt.

This is probably the case. Still including two first round picks in a trade might get the Jazz thinking about it.

He just had a bad year last year. The year before he was an absolute flame thrower quite often.

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.

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.

Harrison Barnes is the player that I would love to see the Suns get if they are unable to land a “star”.

It's hard to see the Kings cooperating but I've seen trade scenarios out there.
