Another game that shows this team absolutely can feed the post if they have a player willing and who knows how to get position.
In exchange for Turner, the Suns should offer Frank Kaminsky while he's still a hot property. But they need to act fast... and beat it out of town as soon as possible after the trade is completed.
I was thinking more along the lines of something that has any chance of happening. Turner is 25 years old, leads the league in blocks, provides steady double-digit scoring, and even has three-point range. So it would be Turner as a replacement for Ayton, once the Suns figure out that giving Ayton a max extension will sabotage their future (which I suspect they already know). The Pacers would have to include some talent, and depending on when the trade happens, the Suns would or would not have to send some salary back.
Ayton plus Smith or Saric works in a trade for Turner.
Saric is under contract with the Suns for another season but I'm not sure if they would want to bring him back.
If the Suns want further compensation they could ask for draft picks. Apparently Torrey Craig isn't eligible to be traded yet.
The Suns would trade Smith instead of Saric because they need bodies next year. The Pacers would need to throw in their pick this year.
If the Suns were to trade Ayton with Smith (expiring), they should ask for two first round picks.
I'm not confident in the Suns ability to draft but they could use them in trades.
Somewhat disagree. Jokic is arguably the best player in the league and has virtually no athleticism. The main difference between him and Frank is that Jokic plays with a ton of confidence. Of course Jokic is also more talented, but I think it shows that Frank could be so much more with a higher confidence level.Frank was college national player of the year. You don't do that without skills. He also works really hard. He has the size too. He just doesn't have the fast twitch element that NBA teams seem to really want in centers.
It makes him effective against player like Nurkic but at a disadvantage when a Giannis is on the floor.
I think jokic is also an inch or two taller and has vastly superior basketball skills.Somewhat disagree. Jokic is arguably the best player in the league and has virtually no athleticism.

Yeah confidence is important but it can't make up for such a huge difference in build, skill and talent.I think jokic is also an inch or two taller and has vastly superior basketball skills.
That’s what it was. Jokic’s length.In regard to measurements. Kaminsky is slightly taller than Jokic. However, Jokic has a 7'3" wingspan and Kaminsky only has a 6'11" wingspan.
Yeah I mentioned his skill in my comment. My point is that if a player like Jokic can be as wildly successful as he has been than Frank certainly has the physical capability to be much more successful than he has been.I think jokic is also an inch or two taller and has vastly superior basketball skills.
