    I would expect Cam Johnson to cost a bit more ... but I like him.

    Ant and draft assets for Bridges would be a huge win for us. I have no fucking clue what the Nets are doing so I don't know what to expect out of them but Bridges next to Dame and Payton or Sharpe would be really valuable.

    Ant for Bridges straight up would be a huge win for us. I struggle to say adding draft compensation to Ant for Bridges is a “win”, although it balances out the roster a lot more.

    I just want to say in a delayed response.. two 26 year olds who can start on any team and one 32 year old vet who a lot of teams want plus four unprotected first rounders is an overpay for a 34 year old all time great who has already dealt with significant injuries most likely due to his age. If the Suns don't win a title because of this trade then they really fucked up!

    Yep. It's the only correct way to look at this.

    With Booker, Ayton, Paul and Durant they are immediately a contender. These are moves that championship teams make.

    Sorry you're wrong!
    This discussion is absolutely over and there is no response worth my time to read.

    Like him but don't forget he is RFA this summer and it's a weak FA class, supposedly turned down a 17 mil per extension

    If I'm Sean Marks, Crowder is probably the only one of those I'm interested in offloading (unless of course he thinks Simmons is a lost cause). Dinwiddie/Thomas/Curry at guard, DFS/Bridges/Johnson at wing, Claxton/Simmons in the post...I'm very interested in seeing how that group performs.

    However, I do wonder if they could use a 275lb Euro center...
