    We need to draft BPA regardless of position. Culver would be BPA at #4 so if he's there at #6, we take him and figure it out.

    Seriously! Looking at who we actually have under contract. How little cap space we have. It is REALLY hitting home to me just what a BAD year of GM work that McD did for us. If you look at Toronto's GM as having the best year for his club, arguably McD had the worst. It was not just record, but the contracts he signed that put us so far behind this year. James Jones is starting 200 yards back this season, and all the other GMs are at the 100 yard mark, and some arguably at the 50. I really have sympathy for the hole we have to get out of just to get to average.

    Now Gambo as well is pushing for the Suns to draft Hunter. The two local radio hosts whom I respect the least. Really might need to rethink things...

    I just heard that. Plus the poll of the day has him as the least popular option I think. I was just thinking when I listened to the radio, "If I am agreeing with Gambo, maybe I am wrong?"

    Yeah you should. If it is between Culver and Hunter - Culver is the better choice.

    The Suns have been trying to figure it out for a decade. Isn't it time to change that approach?

    3 lead Point Guards. Drafting 2 Power Forwards at the same time. Now we have none.

    Isn't it time for a pro-active approach? Which starts with recognizing what we need.

    BPA is a general philosophy. Losing teams need specifics.

    And what we definitely do not need is a shorter, less athletic version of Josh Jackson.

    it would be awesome to in three straight drafts pass up Fox, SGA and then one of the PGs who will inevitably become a legit player for yet another freaking wing.

    Jamal Murray as well but that one’s more hindsight. Fox and SGA were discussed a lot on here.

    It seems crystal clear now that our current core is Booker, Ayton, Oubre, and Bridges.

    Jackson and Warren are viewed as expendable by management and not part of our future.

    I can't wait to see how the draft and free agency shapes our team.

    Going into next year with a young starting 5 and growing from there is the best bet.

    PG D LO/ Garland or White

    SG Booker/DLO/Garland White

    SF Bridges/Ourbe

    PF Ourbe/BOL

    C Ayton/BOL

    That's a decent young team with shooting and athletism.

    Trade Josh Jackson to Hawks for the 10th pick.

    Draft BOL BOL he may grow into a deadly 3pt shooter and shot blocker. He and Ayton can both play spot mins together and cause havoc in the lane on D

    Bol can play back up PF/C


    Trade warren for cap space and pay DLO

    A solid Young seven fill in the bench and they push for playoffs in 20-21.

    Bol has a chance to be the next KD OR MAYBE Gobert.

    We're not getting the 10th for Josh. And Bol Bol is going to get mauled in the NBA, there is more to defense than blocking shots and he won't be able to do any of it, guards are going to be able to shove him around.

    If we did trade warren and got a pick between 15 and 25 and bol bol was still on the board, I probably would be for taking him, even though I think the odds are he will be a bust. But it is hard to beat his upside potential at that point.

    Josh's trade value right now is more around the range of highly protected second round pick
