    About 10 to 12 tries.

    I am actually all about trading picks for real NBA players, but not for 30-somethings that have had their careers ruined by multiple injuries. No thanks. I'd give them an expiring contract for Rose, and that's about it.

    A second-round pick and salary filler.

    Watching this game against the Pacers make me wanna sell the farm for him. Jeezus this time has nothing when Booker isn't on.

    Suns really need a starting PG and if they have to draft Ball to get one DO IT.

    I think Rose has another 4 years of decent productivity and he has a year and a half on his present deal. I do not see how he is any more of a stop-gap than Oubre, who has the same length left on his contract.

    This team needs a competent backup pg. It needs more scoring. It needs more quality veteran presence. Rose checks all those boxes.

    I'm not a proponent of trading for Derrick Rose because I don't think he would want to come here, the price would be too high and the Suns would not be able to keep him.

    But take a moment and think how much better Rose would make the Suns offensively especially in pick and rolls.

    Hard pass for personal reasons and locker room poisoning.

    He is 31 years old and hasn't played a full healthy season in nearly a decade. You say he has 4 years of productivity... IMO, his next injury isn't a matter of if but when and it will likely be his last.

    To me, this isn't even worthy of consideration. There is no way a team looking at a lotto pick should give up a 1st round pick for a older player with a nightmarish injury history.

    Rose’s contract is so friendly, 2 years at 7.5M each. Even if he goes down it’s not a crippling move.

    would be great to see him take over when Booker goes out.

    I’m not sure what lineup finishes the game though.

    Rose would be better for a contender trying to win today. That’s not Phoenix. Need to get assets

    Cauley-Stein would have been a nice one to have.

    If Jones just sits on the expiring contracts of Baynes, Saric and Tyler Johnson and does nothing, there should not be a single person left on this board defending him.

    I don’t think many people on the board are necessarily defending him, we all just don’t feel the need to bring him up 8-9 times a day on every single thread.

    I don’t know if I’ll ever understand how people can consistently not understand the concept of trading.

    Well, not an unprotected pick of course.
