I like that Golden State deal, so we get the 11th and 13th.

That could potentially land us Kemba.

If that GS deal is legit, I don't understand why we haven't done it yet. Best trade Suns have been rumored in

Anti-Hero, Maybe the Golden State deal is just rumors. That deal was a dream come true and there's no way the Suns would have waited unless they want to wait until draft day. You never know with the Suns front office. They believe that Nash and Gortat is untouchable. I can understand they believe Gortat is untouchable but we should listen to all deals that involves Nash. We can't build around Nash anymore and should get some value instead of letting him walk. The suspense of draft day is too intense for me. lol Go Suns!!!!!!!!

I'm guessing it's just a rumor too because I cannot see how they don't jump on it. Or maybe they're giving Fropez another year to be good enough to be a legit backup.

I'm all for trading Nash, for the reasons you stated. I won't get into my long winded stance on this but it has to be a good deal otherwise let him walk and use his money to sign a FA later on.

It's too intense for me too, NBA Draft Day is my favorite holiday!

Go Suns!!!!!!!

Markieff Morris



Quote:
NBAComparison: Drew Gooden

Strengths: Markieff Morris has improved his value as an NBA prospect with each year while playing at Kansas ... Morris is a strong, muscular 6'10 with an NBA body at 21 years old ... He does an excellent job at finishing around the rim, using long and effective drop steps for better positioning when dealing in the paint ... Shows nice touch on his short, over the shoulder baby hook shot ... He's become extremely efficient from the perimeter, shooting 42% from downtown and looking fluent and comfortable in spot up opportunities ... Averaged a block and 8.3 rebounds in just 24 minutes of play, illustrating his high activity level and aggressive nature on the interior ... Defensively he plays with focus and passion, using his strength to force tough shots in the post ... Both he and his twin Marcus exhibit an aggressive "bullying" demeanor ...

Weaknesses: He's effective within a few feet of the rim and as a spot up shooter on the perimeter, but he's missing an in between game ... Facing up and using a dribble is not part of his repertoire ... Missing advanced high post moves, and struggles to draw fouls despite his physical interior play ... His ceiling is not as high as some of the other longer more athletic bigs ...

Overall: Morris set of skills will certainly be coveted by NBA teams looking for stability and depth up front ... He shows pick n' pop potential and the ability to man up opposing bigs... Though he lacks the upside of most lottery picks, he's one of the safest options in this year's draft ... Comparing him to his brother Marcus, Markieff is bigger, stronger and more athletic but lacks his younger twin's offensive ability...

Third twin in a row, three times a charm? I hope so.

Mad we missed Biyombo and Walker, but it is what it is. Charlotte looks pretty good now.

Those hats the players got were NICE! I hope you can buy them. I really liked the look of the Suns one.

eh, Taylor Griffin doesn't count it's not like we had a shot at Blake or even Brooke for that matter.

Like I posted in the Suns draft thread, we were not gonna find the answer in this years draft. No matter who we picked. This is rebuilding mode, it just has Nash in it so it doesn't look like it. IF Markieff can average 10ppg and 10rpg while Gortat continues to average 15 and 10 we'd have a pretty solid front court. Then add in that we'll probably be in the lottery again, or can trade Nash for a high first round pick (unlikely) or use our own lottery pick to get a scoring wing player or a legit top pg in the draft, we could be a solid team again in 2-3 years.

I hope Markieff pans out to be at least a contributing role player, and not just Robin Lopez.

Taylor Griffin does count, because he is a twin.

I doubt the Suns will trade Nash, or Hill for that matter. Just let them die here.

Alright, we need a nickname for this kid.

I'm thinking The 7 Minute Difference, because he was born 7 minutes before his brother.

Although until he plays for the Suns I can't develop a good short one.
