    the problem with this is if he is completely taking himself out of the offense, then the Onis having to play 4 on 5 to get shots at the end of games. You can’t have a complete non-option on the floor on offense in the fourth quarter. And that’s what he is at this point. You can play good D all you want, but if you are struggling to score, that’s eventually going to catch up to you on the other end.

    Saying he’s a “non option” is a pretty big stretch for a guy shooting 56% from the field.

    You’re missing my point. he makes himself a non option because of his timidity and refusal to bang, crash hard and seal and often times not even facing the basket when he gets the ball between the FT and top of the key.

    again, it’s not that he CAN’T be an option. It’s that he WON’T be an option that makes it problematic if all people want him to do is play defense.

    That fails to take into consideration:

    Ayton’s inability to seal his defender to make himself a viable option

    Ayton’s skillethands turning into repeated turnovers.

    I look forward to the game where you can say “see! I told you so!” as he scores at will down the stretch of a game to put it away. How many games do you think it will be before you get that opportunity?

    his numbers are pretty much the same across the board the only thing that’s down are his field goal attempts, but that’s because we actually have guys who can score everybody else’s attempts are way up but we are playing at a snail pace.

    he’s not a banger he never has been. He’s a finesse guy.

    you and me both, but I think that game will come for his new team next year when we trade him

    What do you think he’ll bring back in trade?

    Unless something changes the Suns game with Memphis at 3.p.m. on Monday appears a go.

    Although Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins does not have all the details he does say this.

    From Duane Rankin, Arizona Republic:


    "All I know is that everything is kind of full go right now," Jenkins said before Memphis played Saturday against Philadelphia. "There's some final checkmarks that need to be taken care of, obviously, for Phoenix to get back on track, but we're all hopeful we are able to play on Monday."

    Wasn't that just speculation fueled rumors?

    Maybe? I know I saw posters talking about it here and on Wolves sites but I can't recall any actual leaks on it?
