    Ya look what he did for Memphis , if the basketball gods didn't hate the sun's we could have drafted him and probably be 5 or 6 wins better right now and in a playoff spot

    Their drafting has really boosted their rebuild. Morant, Clark, Jackson and Brooks are all productive.

    losing out on Morant doomed this team for years. that was the guy we needed. alpha dog at PG. A leader to bring the team together who's got the drive and physical skills to possibly be the #1 guy with Booker and Ayton as great #2 and #3s, with Oubre coming in at a fantastic #4.

    freaking lotto.

    and instead, we got screwed in the lotto, dropped to #6, traded back for some reason to pick up an underwhelming "PF" and then drafted a bunch of older non-atheletes who should be able to contribute fast... because... they were older?

    Rubio was an okay move last off-season. Everything else looks like a swing and a miss.

    NBA lotto is a joke just do the draft by worst record like other sports do rather then punish bad teams because they don't have a superstar

    It appears James Jones philosophy was throwing as many noodles to the wall as possible and praying something sticks. Outside of Booker, KO, Rubio and Ayton every single other player on this team is easily replaceable.

    Just want to point out that I never gave up on Brandon Ingram.

    In case people missed it, Warriors signed Chriss to a 2 way contract and he's back on the team as of Tue.

    All these trade rumors with Love to the Suns are nuts. If they want cap relief, they should be sending US a young player or a first-round pick, not the other way around.
