    It's not a full rebuild until they take Anderson off our hands for Devin Booker. You can't do a full rebuild with talent like Booker on the team.

    Trust the process Phoenix.

    Screw it, trade Gordon for Melo and sign Barbosa and/or Jennings for replacement. Do whatever it takes to get this superteam.

    Salary doesn't match. Gordon makes ~13M and Melo makes a whopping ~26M.

    perfect cog for the dantoni system. His strengths are cutting , finishing staple plays and shooting the 3. He'll be good, sign the man!

    emergency guard off the bench who is reliable and has experience, championship at that. other than a high price i see no reason why he shouldn't grab a spot on this team.

    a plus is that he has a good relationship with nene

    Knows D'Antoni very well, plays our style, part of the Warriors Championship Team 2015, played with Nenê for the Brazilian national squad... makes indeed too much sense. Hope we can get him.

    Still wouldn't be enough unless you want to throw in Capela.
