Long-armed. Blocks some shots. Shooting 18 of 45 from three this year.

Pretty obviously an upgrade in athleticism from Dario, who was only going to be here another few months anyway, and was probably going to be glued to the bench during the playoffs. I don't really see a downside.

Hussle/project guy who can't really shoot, but is long and still young. Makes sense. The Saric experiment was a disaster from the beginning, and it's good to get it over with a few months early. RFA this summer.

I like taking a risk on a former first round pick who is 22 years old at 6'9" and a 7 foot wing span. This is how you make up for trading away first round picks. Pick up or trade for first round picks!

Another PF with the body of a SF. He IS long. But wont be throwing that 125lb body around much.
Put him on a bike feed him pasta and beer and call me in a year.
I'll miss Dario for sure.
All our Mascots are gone now just Cam P left.

After we win a few chips. I wouldn't mind going back to the scrappy team with players I like.

Maybe we'll bring back Frank Kaminsky if Houston releases him. Nobody mascots like Frank does.

Ish Wainright comes very close. The thing is, Phoenix gets something out of these players.

I do miss Frank. Wish the Suns had room.
