    The suns must be offering a crazy good deal. 4-years/50M while we are probably trying to see if he’ll take the old 4-years/32 l

    Look, if someone’s gonna offer him more than 50 total... Thank you for your service!

    He’s been a nice constant for us, but it’s laughable to suggest that he’s irreplaceable. The id argue that PJ was more important than Ariza was last year.

    Hope he stays though, really do!

    Melo can't play defense and his offense has regressed significantly. I'll take him for the minimum as a stretch 4 off the bench, but he doesn't want that role.

    Well at least it's not to the Warriors, I couldn't deal with it. I can deal with it if its the Suns though.

    Also, with Booker’s FA looming, the Suns really want to make the playoffs.

    Ariza would be a good player to get for them. He adds good value on the court but tremendous value as a mentor/locker room presence.

    I wouldn't exactly be heartbroken to see him go after that 0-12 disaster in Game 7. But what options do the Rockets have to replace him?

    It would be tough to lose Ariza, but I honestly believe PJ Tucker can step in and man the 3 spot. Resigning Mbah a moute becomes even more important now.

    Ariza could be using the Suns for Rockets to give him a better offer. Ariza as a 33 year starter on a 4 year deal.

    It makes no sense for the suns to spend millions on a aging wing that plays the same position as jackson and tj warren.

    Or Houston has already hinted to him the max they'll retain him for and he's looking for more.

    If he wants to go get paid, go get paid!

    It'd only suck to lose him to a GS, SA, BOS (or any other contender) on a taxpayer MLE deal you could match/beat. Otherwise...
