KD is fine, but I worry that we’re gonna run him into the ground with Beal and Book out with hangnails
Why do you (and a couple others here) keep trivializing their injuries? It's been painful to just watch Beal try and move and if you don't think Booker would want to play through a broken leg I don't know what to tell you.

Agreed. Book’s foot/leg issues ALWAYS get worse when he comes back too soon… as we literally just saw.

And Beal is habitually injured and in videos looks stiffer than Herman Munster.

I saw that Camara went 3-5 from the field and 2-3 from 3 so I looked up his numbers this year. Prior to tonight he was shooting 30% FG and 21% from 3. Not sure which rotation guy he’d be playing over for the Suns.

Not tonight, he didn’t. He had 6 points and 0 FTs in a loss to the Grizzlies in Portland that secured the Grizz’s first win.
And zero Assists, Nurk had 7 assists today… has DA ever had 7 assists?

I was genuinely wondering so I looked it up, one time in his career he had 8 that’s it one time over 6 assists…

Who knows where Camara would fit because we don't have anyone like him on our roster. He seems to built and plays like a legitimate modern PF at 6'8" and 220 pounds. He has a 7' wingspan and 8'11" standing reach. He's an active defender, like KBD, but has more confidence in his offensive game. He's kind of a cross between between Bates-Diop and Metu. He'd probably take minutes that Little, KBD, and Yuta have been getting as the 3rd or 4th bench player brought in. He'd allow for a slightly larger lineup than we saw early in the year.

It's not just about this year with him though. He's under contract for 4 more years on essentially a minimum deal as a 2nd round pick. Whether he played a lot now isn't the primary reason a lot of us didn't like his inclusion in the Ayton trade. He's making roughly 15% of what Little is annually and I doubt anyone would rather have Little. He's already ahead of Kris Murray, whose also a rookie but taken 30+ picks before him as a 1st round pick, in Portland's rotation. He's a good on ball defender and active off ball. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being the 2023 drafts 2nd round breakout player as it seems there's usually 1-2 late 2nd round picks who end up being legit players every year.

I see Ayton played against Biz who was the starter for the Grizzlies.

Biz was also 2-2 from the FT line. In his 20 something minutes, he has taken one less free throw than Ayton has the entire season.

I was hoping the Suns could add Biz to their roster at some point in time. He got a sizeable contract ($5 million) with the Grizzlies for one year, but I think only $1 million was guaranteed.
