    Oubre straight up for #2, draft Toppin or the best PG in the draft, go BPA at 10 and sign Serge Ibaka and I think we might be looking at a solid playoff team next year while still cultivating young talent that lead to the Suns rising to contender status in a couple years (if those pics pan out and Booker doesn’t do us dirty and figure out a way to end up on the Lakers).

    I still think Sarver could reclaim some fan capital if he at least brought back the same music for the intro video.

    It would certainly help. I have Sirius and Eye In The Sky in my music downloads from The Alan Parsons Project.

    As a matter of fact Sirius is playing right now. Go Suns!

    Agreed, and I could get behind this. My fear is that it ends up being Haliburton at #2, Bane at #10 and no free agent signing.

    The Suns could also could trade down from #2 or #10 and pick up another pick if they really want Bane or Riller.

    Do we really want three rookies in the rotation for a team that really needs to make the playoffs this coming season, though?

    If such a trade were made for #2, at least the Suns would be getting something in return not that I agree with the strategy.

    If one player can start at power forward, maybe.

    no we don’t even want 2 rookies. It’s time to move forward and do something

    I agree it's time to move forward but it's a 15 man roster not to mention the two-way spots.

    A couple of rookies plus a key free agent would help. Rookies are cheap talent.

    You need rookies if you are going to sign a max or large contract!

    It's a way to add talent and cheaper contracts always help.

    So if we got the #2, who are we picking - Ball?

    I admit that is a deal we have to seriously consider, but whoever we pick at 2 is going to have a big contract for a rookie. Is there even somebody at 2 you can feel confident is worth 9+ million a year?

    I do that deal without hesitation.

    Turn #2 and #10 to Toppin and Haliburton. Maybe trade down a few slots for Toppin while trading up a few for Haliburton. To me both those players are low risk types. They are not swing for the fences superstars, but they will have very productive NBA careers and could easily be solid starters. That is what this team needs.
