Whats up?

The Suns need to think about rebuilding at this point. There's no reason to keep Steve Nash for two or three more years only to be in the middle of the pack. The Suns should entertain all or any offers for Steve Nash if it makes sense. A real power forward should be priority and getting rid of Vince Carter's contract and being able to free up money should be good enough to land the Suns the power forward they desperately need. A shooting guard or point guard should be the main focus in the 2011 NBA draft. What do you guys think?

Yeah rebuilding should have started already, but I dont think the FO wants to sacrifice wins, but I think its worth it. We're in no position to be competitive and win.

And Nash and Carter should go, we need a strong frontcourt....well...we just need a new team.

Biggest issue to be addressed is PF.

Gortat was awesome a back up for him would be nice, but not totally necessary. RLo is pretty close to awful on most nights but can spell Gortat for now.

Stevie, I say keep him. Getting trash and shitty salaries does nothing for us. Said it before, he has his millions to be happy with a mediocore team.

Carter is going, it's not if and how.. he is. I think theres a team option or its a buyout or something like that, but everything I've heard says he's gone. And good ridance

Our wings are covered. Not great players but JDud and Piet are a solid group. We still have GHill who was a ridiculous defender for us this year. Saw Mike Wilbon pick him for hardwood hero award or something like that. He was a beast defensively.

Arron Brooks is a solid backup to Nash, I think he's a solid stop gap until Phx gets it's next big time point guard. (unless brooks becomes the big time point guard.. but I doubt it) But look at Phx all the way back, we always have a really good pg.. so he's coming.. whoever he might be. Dowdell?

Somewhere we have to find a legit shooter.. so maybe I was wrong when I said our wings are good, they can hit the 3 ball, and are strong defensively but we need a sharpshooter. Maybe we can find that in this years draft.

Honestly, I don't think we'll find a pf in the draft. I don't know enough to say whether we could find a sharpshooter (in the draft) so who knows? We could do some trades, but I don't see us sending nash to say the T-Wolves for Love... which I would do, I just think managment wouldn't be cruel to Nash. Contenders don't have anything... and please God don't give him up for Bosh. I think to do this right we'll have to put up with some crappy (but not awful) years for a while. Trades really are the wild card though... so who really knows.

dowdell has potential i say develop him until nash retires for him to be our backup point.
players we should keep nash, brooks, gortat, frye,dudley, dowdell. childress seems a good keep too. i dont see why suns have not been playing him more.
whatever the case our sg position is a big prob

log jam at the 3, he can't shoot well enough to play the 2 very often. Hill, Dudley, & Piet are all better options at the 3 than he is.
