Re: Suns blowin' it up! Trade JRich, Turk & Clark
Its a good deal for the Suns, they pick up much needed rebounding and size in Gortat whos on a reasonable contract which runs through his prime.
Carter may be good alongside Nash. If not his contract expires.
Peitrus will help defensively, in particular Hill.
Draft pick and cash are a bonus.
Off loading Turk and that contract is the best part of this deal....Terrible contract which could have burdened the Suns for 5 years is now someone elses problem.
J Rich is a big loss but his skill set isnt particularly unique....Suns can live without him....especially with Vince and the wing depth they already possessed.
Clark has all the tools but Icant think of one play thats made me think heS going to be solid in the NBA...He guarded Dirk well in one game...thats all I can think of.
I hate the way Phoenix has managed their team of late (How do you not resign Amare when he wants to stay and he just took you to the conference finals?) but this deal is OK.
