    That looks like a good fit to me. How much cap room does Phoenix have?

    If they renounce all of their free agents with the exception of Oubre, they have about $13 million to work with if my math is correct.

    Next to Ayton? Not really about that personally, but we'll see.

    I get what you are saying. But that team just needs talent and to get to the playoffs.

    Talent is definitely not enough in the West, but i think what they need most is to find some leadership and balance for their starting 5, cause their core guys seem just poor in that aspect to me, they're one way players with not exactly great attitude, you add a guy like Randle there, and i don't really know...if i'm them i would try to get a couple of solid veterans that would/should fit well with Booker and Ayton, guys like Taj and Conley let's say.

    I wonder why Randle (or any other FA, really) would want to go to the Suns.

    Crap organization, all the potentially great players are still developing, and you're in the ultra competitive west.

    Not to mention, it's a HC carousel, and the team doesn't have an improving record or one that gets you anywhere near the playoffs.

    He will go anywhere he can get paid as he should. Considering the huge gaping hole at the 4 stop that exist in Phoenix, this isn't really news. And Phoenix isn't that bad. They have a new coach and new front office. I think the suns are going to be really leery of overpaying someone like Randle considering that they already have two guys who are going to be getting paid the max for the foreseeable future in addition to Oubre who is going to require a lot of their cap space. The other team that is supposed to be interested in him would be Brooklyn if they miss out on the top tier free agents.

    Randall wants money and touches and the Suns can likely get both.

    The Suns front office has been told the rebuild is over, they need to win and make moves to win now. They want to make a splash.

    Yep, Randle would take any team to the next level. Can you stop smoking joints for one day and provide rational thought or opinion for once!!

    Dude stop making the pot heads look bad. Weed isn’t nearly strong enough to influence comments that bad.

    Pot heads don’t claim big bum. Hell, even crack heads would be ashamed.

    Josh Jackson is garbage and they will give him away. I find it hard to believe they only have $13MM in cap space. Phoenix has always been a good place to play in terms of the city. If they changed owners they could quickly become a favored destination again.
