idiotic move for both teams.

Fact you know nothing about basketball. Aaron Brooks will be a free agent and the Rockets did not want to resign him. So they traded him and got something in return as oppose to nothing.

Nash is more than likely gone next year so you guys traded for your future PG.

real question is if brooks is happy with this trade ? if he is then he should thrive in phoenix but since he's been shipped off to a team where he has no choice but to play as a backup pg then wouldn't he be pissed off ? given those were the reasons behind his shitty attitude, while also playing bad all season.

Having a player like Brooks (when good) coming off the bench is a great boost for the suns but he might not play the role so enthusiastically as expected from the fans

Brooks is not playing bad by choice, this is his contract year...

GM Lance Blanks- " I can say this openly and honestly that Goran Dragic is a much better person then he is a basketball player and that is really all that matters. I think we definitely improve in the short term and hopefully in the long run as well."

I lol'd. What a nice way of saying Dragic can't play ball.

That's harsh.

It would be easier to miss Goran if he didn't play like shit this year, but I will always remember him for dropping 23 on the Spurs in the playoffs.

And at the time he was drafted didn't Steve Kerr make the claim that Dragic was the second best PG in the draft. Lol.

and now Steve Kerr is back to discussing basketball instead of making team altering decisions.

Brooks will be very nice if Nash is indeed gone this offseason. While not a top caliber player in this league, he can put up points, and will keep the Suns somewhat respectable going into rebuilding. Wont cost too much to keep either.

If we can't get anything good in return, why wouldn't we make him honor his contract? If he wants to go to a contender, who would we get in return from Boston, Miami, NY etc.. I'd much rather see him finish out his last year and the Suns get his cap space when he comes off the books.

a) He didnt want to be traded
b) Hes hardly rotting...Having another season statistically better than his MVP's...Suns are on a 16-6 stretch. Not to mention WCF last season.

Nash has never shown an indication that he has any real interest in being traded. He loves the guys he's playing with now that Stou_emire is gone, he loves PHX, and the franchise will do everything it can to see he finishes his career there.
