Suns are at a point where they can't show if they have a good FO or not. They're rebuilding through the draft and haven't made any obvious bad picks yet. No terrible signings outside of Tyson Chandler and even that almost got the Aldridge so not that bad.

Booker, Chriss, Bender all at or below .050 on WS/48. Len considered by some (or many?) as not worth re-signing.

2 of the 3 are rookies, and Booker one of the youngest in his class. Using WS on a team without many team wins won't show much. Player skill is all they can evaluate, and Booker is one of the more valued young prospects in the NBA.

I don't think anyone would consider not re-signing them, at least no one in NBA circles.

At the moment, I wouldn't be "planning" on re-signing any of the young guys to big to huge extensions. With them there, I'd give them more time before deciding what to offer or to trade. But I am not excited or positive about any- yet. But trade consideration? Willing to listen on all. Probably would end up pushing for it on some (or all), eventually.

Those were the players teams wanted for superstars, I'm pretty sure the entire NBA would take any and all of them. They've got one of the better young WC cores.

We disagree on this one by light years.

For sure haha. I'd be interested to see a few more opinions, especially on offering extensions.

I don't think the Suns have any good prospects on their team, maybe Dragan Bender? I can't think of any that I'd trade a real asset for.

I largely agree, although I sort of like Chriss. The Suns are in a weird place, in that, I don't think the guys their young guys have a ton of trade value, but I'd be happy to have all of them to see how it shakes out.

I can't see a .500 record in next 3 years. Or beyond, except based on new acquisitions.

Suns just don't have any exciting prospects, each has glaring flaws that aren't likely to be overcome.

I don't know when they start to win, but Booker to me is exciting. Awful defender but could be a top scorer pretty quickly, I think with a full season of a real big and PG, no Knight, they'd look a lot better. I'd gladly take any of last year's picks, Booker, or Bledsoe. The big man situation isn't great though.

Booker was one of the guys targeted for Porzingis I believe.

I think the Knicks asked for Booker and 4th pick for Zings and the 8th pick. Not sure why the Suns would turn that down, almost like they have bad management :lol:

If they actually turned that down, Suns management shoots to the bottom of the list. The reported demands they are making to Boston (if true) make me think that the knicks never made this offer.

Yeah that would be bad. Would definitely change my opinion, though I'd think they'd want to pair them.
