    No idea how you draft a guy #1 overall. He performs well and you make the finals. You refuse to sign him when you first can and now probably letting him walk for nothing.

    Well Woj just said the expectation is that they will and waiting until they can trade him. That makes them not engaging in him or trading him last summer even dumber.

    Going to suck to have to match and watch him sulk. All because he doesn't get to try to play like Embiid and Jokic when he has the ball handling skills of a child.

    I don't think the Suns are getting KD but I think the perceived value of KD and what Brooklyn will ultimately get are not exactly close.

    Wonder if the Suns are posturing about matching DA to Get thr Pacers to come to the table with a bigger S/T offer to help gather more assets for a KD trade.

    Because otherwise the way Phoenix has handled this up until now makes no sense if they match a max after being very vocal about not wanting to give him that.

    I don't think he's getting traded if you're correct. If the Minnesota rumor is true Brooklyn is being ridiculous about it and they aren't getting that. But he's got 4 years left on his deal and they're not just going to let him walk for the bullshit we see a lot of these stars traded for when they force their way around.

    Do people think KD is going to just drastically fall off or something? He’s been injured, sure, but he’s still an amazing player

    Phoenix should match that. They fucked up letting it get to this point, though. And they probably won’t because they are cheap and seem to undervalue Ayton.

    Would still be kind of shocked if Phoenix doesn't match. It just makes no sense to let him walk away for free, and they had two weeks to work out a S&T with a team if they weren't going to match an offer.

    I am an original ticket holder on the Mikal Bridges bandwagon. vander02 and I were on that thing long before it was cool. Huge fan of Bridges and his game. That said...

    If Mikal Bridges is the best player you're getting back for Kevin Durant, you do nothing and dare Durant to ruin his legacy forever by either sitting or tanking his way out of town.

    I’m probably higher on Bridges than you are, get on my level.

    Also, I’m not saying the Nets should make that deal. I just think the Suns losing Bridges hurts them in a big way so most of these rumored trades seem like terrible ideas for them.

    90 games in three years. Plus KD is going to request another trade at some point in the near future cus he’s a bitch. I’ll do herb Jones and some 1sts. I’m not giving up Ingram who has been almost as good or better than KD past couple years.
