that's what it takes?

2nd round pick for a 13/4/6 guy with solid shooting numbers and solid defense?

I'm sitting here thinking "That's the kid with the goofy hair they got in the lottery a few years ago. The few games I've seen him play the C's, he's been pretty solid." THAT goes for a 2nd rounder?!

What is this league even?

Great pickup for Phoenix who desperately needed a PG.

I guess they didn't want to resign both Payton and Gordan. Gordan will probably get 14-17m a year Payton will probably ask for 12-16m. That would lock up thier money for the next 4 years since they have both Biyombo and Fournier long term. So basically same team that's been horrible for the next 4 years plus luxary tax would be bad. I guess they could've gotten a bit more but he is a FA in the summer.

It's not like his production has even dipped or anything, kid's improved every year...is only 23 years old. Plays defense. I don't get it. Suns got an absolute steal. I guess Orlando maybe wouldn't have been able to keep him and want to draft a new PG to develop?

Orlando's role in the league for the last few years haa been to help young talent grow for other teams. They have let so many young guys go.
