If James Jones is waiting until December 15th to make a trade, the Suns will play 7 more games through that date.

Somehow the Suns lead the West by 1 game over Denver. This is likely to change after a brutal 7 game road trip.

7 game roadie… this will really show us where we are. We’ve been WAYYYYYY front loaded with home games so far this season.

Rubber is about to hit the road… figuratively and literally.

Suns have lost to two of the four worst teams in the NBA in the Magic and Rockets.

Can they go three out of four and lose to the Spurs?

Mikal Bridges thinks he may have hyperextended his right knee, but will get it checked out.

If James Jones doesn't minimally strengthen the roster between December 15th and the trade deadline (also buyouts) it's going to get really tough.

The Suns can't expect an already thin roster not to wear down under the burden.

I'm especially concerned about the heavy work load on Devin Booker and the slim pickings at power forward.

I believe the real date is January 15th

That's the date Ayton can be traded with his consent.

However, a lot of players signed during the summer can be traded starting December 15th.
