In case you missed it.

They salvaged a bad situation in which they alienated their best player and made a myriad of trades that netted them a dynamic combo-guard in Brandon Knight from the Milwaukee Bucks, some solid scoring punch off the bench in Marcus Thornton, three future first-round picks plus a couple million in cash from Miami. The Suns got other players, but will waive John Salmons, Kendall Marshall and likely Danny Granger, too. They gave up the best player in the deal -- Goran Dragic, a player who never fit in Isaiah Thomas, a third-string center in Miles Plumlee, a quality asset in point guard Tyler Ennis, a practice player in Zoran Dragic and the first-round pick from the Lakers that is top-5 protected this season.

I would like them to keep Knight.

Eric Bledsoe seems like he doesn't really care about winning. He doesn't feel like he got that competitive spirit in him. It's more about the stats and money.

Not sure why the GM is so high about Bledsoe and Markieff. Just trade them already, draft a backup PG to play behind Knight. Start Goodwin at SG and Warren at SF.

But knowing the Suns FO, it's still going to be Bledsoe this Bledsoe that on every Suns media headlines. They probably let Knight walk.

Seems like he changed when he became a Sun,, stats drop big time. ..
