    The Suns GM that made the Ariza trade and the Anderson trade is no longer there.

    I don't think PHX can get much for him. If they can do slightly better than an even exchange that might be their best bet.

    Yeah, that is probably what we are talking about here. BTW, the 76ers have a number of 2nd rounders. So Wilson Chandler's expiring + one or two 2nd rounders could do it. Philly might like Ariza's durability over Chandler. I could see the allure there.

    And in this scenario Wilson Chandler becomes a buy-out candidate in Phoenix.

    If the Rockets get Trevor back my guess Is Harden and Paul who are close buddies with Trevor had a big hand in it. This will allow Ennis to thrive as a backup and gamble on many steals as he likes in shorter minutes.

    Anderson - Knight (Chriss) - Ariza.

    John Wall and Trevor Ariza were teammates in Washington.

    Maybe Trevor wants to recruit John Wall to Houston.

    Ariza likes Houston doesn't he?
    3rd stint here, perhaps he can mentor a bunch of younger 3nD wings for us?

    We let Ariza walk because Tilman was a cheap fck who liked a quick buck

    PHX traded Ariza for Oubre

    PHX traded Oubre for CP3

    CP3 lead them to the finals and is giving them a real chance at a title

    Rockets are the worst team in the league and owe multiple picks and pick swaps to OKC for taking CP3

    Thanks Tilman, hope that lux tax savings did you real nice

    Lol this was Harden and D’Antoni’s and Morey’s fault

    CP3 showing that playing normal ball with seven foot centers and mid range jumpers work

    It’s actually sad how that core fizzled out. And the way it did.

    What a true disaster. Not often do strong words like disaster actually fit so well.
