A very hot moment
This would be interesting. I wonder if it's for a 10 day contract, two-way contract or a permanent roster spot.
He is averaging 16.6 points and 13.3 rebounds in the G-League.
My guess it's not for a permanent roster position because some veterans stand to be waived.
If that many teams are after him then he'll get a regular spot with one of them. I can't see that much interest leading to a 10 day contract. Where he'll end up, who knows.
It wouldn't surprise me if James Jones did sign him to a regular deal similar to Cam Payne last year. He seems more interested in continuity than short term moves.
I'm game although some good players stand to be waived.
If James Jones can find a big man that works out like Cam Payne, then why not.
Problem is this guy is not a big guy. 6'7 210 pounds is very much small forward size.
We need a legit athletic 4/5 type, who can defend athletic 4's but also have enough strength to defend most centers. Someone who can legitimately guard big men like Ayton when he gets into foul trouble.
Javale McGee might be the guy to target.
Other than Drummond, is there chatter about other big men getting waived?
There are 2 defensive, athletic 4s that keep popping up in trade rumors in Aaron Gordon and Larry Nance jr. They both are interesting but I don't know if the Suns are inclined or if they have assets if they were.
Suns have very little to trade, that's the issue.
We really really screwed up by choosing to trade for Baynes instead of resigning Holmes. That looked bad then, now it looks truly awful.
I think the Suns can use a 4 or a 5.
Alize Johnson is a power forward who has some nice athleticism. I noticed he averaged 4 assists in the G-League as well.
With another power forward the Suns still have three player that can play center in Ayton, Saric and Kaminsky.
Don't get me wrong, I like size, but if Johnson can play power forward, he could help the Suns.
Hmm, he does appear to play big. Wish Deandre had some of this guys aggression. Plays a bit like Randle it appears.
Ok, that video does peak my interest.
There are some players around the league that will get waived once it's clear there is no trade market. I think there is a chance the Kings waive Bjelica. I think Cousins is available. Proximo mentioned Javale McGee. There are probably some we haven't even thought about.
Suns don't have much to trade except second round picks.
2nd best record in the league would disagree.
Trading for Baynes wasn't a bad trade. We added a good backup C for a season and also got a piece that helped land CP3 for a late 1st rounder. Meanwhile Holmes got.arrested that offseason when it was clear the Suns were looking to establish an identity and get rid of knuckleheads. Handing Holmes a contract then would have shown the new regime was all talk with no follow through.
