    I would kind of be okay with it if it didn't involve Bridges and it was a heavily protected pick or a 2nd rounder. I don't like what it does for the cap, but the team would be significantly better.

    If we have up bridges then we better be getting their 1st round pick too, loves contract would destroy our cap space and we wouldn't be able to improve our bench during the off-season

    He's got three years and 90 million left after this season.

    Lol the media trying to push for their objective. Sometimes the media gets the ball rolling on these things.

    That's just silly. K-Love is a huge negative due to his age and contract. If Cavs want to trade him, THEY will have to include assets.

    If the Suns think they could seriously contend by next year I would consider it.

    Michael Porter Jr plays like Dragan Bender if Bender knew how to play basketball.

    Suns can come up with the expiring salaries to match match Love's salary for 2019-2020 season but those last three seasons are going to tie up future moves on an aging player, with a history of injury.

    $28,942,830
    $31,258,256
    $31,258,256

    It’s just a terrible move for short term 8th seed potential.

    The media likes to talk it up but trading for Loves doesn't make any sense. Maybe that's why I worry about it happening.

    The Luka stuff notwithstanding, man, how nice would Morant look with Book and Ayton. That's a championship core right there.

    The lottery gods were not nice along with some awful scouting.
