Honestly after next year I don’t expect Monty, Paul or Ayton to be here.

He is also reporting Atlanta, Detroit and Portland to be strong players for Ayton. He is also hearing Charlotte and San Antonio are possibilities.

Atlanta could offer Capela is a S&T. He's due $18.2 million next season so the salary works. We'd need a pick with him but I'd be happy with that return. He's locked up for the foreseeable future as well as he just signed an extension.

Guys… he’s gone. There’s not this much smoke around a guy who is coming back to a team. He wants out and to get paid and I think the team wants him out.

Only question now is what can we get for him.

And good lord… the Stix decision only looks a thousand times worse right now. Would be really nice to have a young, energetic, athletic C there to fill the void a little next to whatever we can add for Ayton.

I wouldn't be happy with Capela. He can't spread the court with his shooting and had a .473 free throw percentage this past season.

When Monty said on the court Ayton had quit the breakup was pretty much guaranteed. It's just the coach or the player now.

Oh he’s gone your right but like I said I think there all gone by the end of next year.

Ayton is the fall guy right now but when Paul fails again and he will who we pointing the finger at then?

All these names like Turner and Capela don’t work for this team

So you trot out
Capela
Crowder
Bridges
Booker
Paul

That’s 3 guys in your starting 5 who can’t get there own shot and a guy who will be 38 come playoffs.

Say what you want about Ayton you can throw it to him and he can score. You flat out can’t do that with Capela or Turner

This team needs a legit offensive weapon. Booker has proven he can’t deal with being doubled he needs a guy to play off of and Paul can’t be that guy anymore he’s just to old.

If I’m trading Ayton it’s for a legit offensive big or wing

It didn't seem like Monty wanted to play Jalen Smith either.

A sign and trade is effectively not matching.

You may be right semantically, but everyone knows what I mean. A sign and trade would be him signing with us. If he signs an offer sheet from another team, a sign and trade is off the table and we will match.

The Suns are better off signing Ayton and trading him later if it doesn't work out but in reality this decision may have already been made.

Dude I’m so over Monty. The Ayton thing, Not playing STIX, not playing Holiday. The lack of adjustments, the finger pointing

But yet trying to jam Shamet and Abdel Nadar down our throats was ridiculous

Effectively quitting at the end of the season so we went into the playoffs in a lull
