    I just want to keep the Nets picks. I see Phx as middling for next few years.


    Although I think I would do #3 and the Nets 2026 pick and 2027 swap for Bridges. Trade them salary filler and it locks the 2025 pick into the the top 5.

    My friend, the Suns would have to be nucking futs to trade Booker. And they've pretty much said they're keeping their "Big Three" together (why they traded for oft-injured overpaid Beal is beyond me but they're stuck with him now).

    Yeah, I guess hiring Bud does pretty much seal that. I don't think they'll ever have enough to get a sniff of the Finals, much less win it. Ergo, thoughts of a rebuild...wishful thinking on my part.

    In that case, count me out on dealing with BKN at all.

    Despite their underwhelming season, I guess people kept tuning in to watch the Suns. It seemed every one of their games was nationally televised (minus against Detroit, Washington maybe, you get the idea).

    If the rockets want to keep improving the team without disrupting the core, adding Malcom Brogdon is the perfect low cost upgrade. Really need to figure out how to pull that off. I also think Melton on the MLE (or even Alvarado on partial MLE) is an excellent alternative if Portland tries to squeeze us.

    I think Jalen Green and Cam Whitmore should work with Clyde Drexler and FVV throughout the offseason. Brooks/ Adams should join them and Bari, Tari/ Sengun/ Amen in a couple of months.

    Amen needs to work with a shooting coach more than one else.

    Makes sense......nothing spectacular but like FVV could become valuable.

    When you look at this list:

    Celtics have 4 in top 50
    Many late-round playoff teams have 3 (DAL, OKC, IND, LAC??, PHO??)
    Rockets have 2 (FVV [27], Sengawd [32])

    So who is "gettable" on the list from top 50?
    Lebron (LAL) (7) if you get Bronny & pay King James
    Spyda (CLE) (17) supposedly available
    PG (LAC) (20) sign & trade?
    Himmie (MIA) (22) gone from MIA, back to TX?
    Beard (LAC) (23) Ballmer only one who is gonna pay him
    Jarrett Allen (CLE) (30) supposedly on the block
    Zion (NOP) (33)
    DeRozan (CHI) (39) over the hill?
    Trae (ATL) (41) FVV ranked higher and Trae seems to be a team killa
    Harty (NYK) (42) UFA! how much will he take? if NT-MLE, sign me up

    I would trade for Himmie (maybe PG) & Caruso (69... giggity) with some combo of Brooks + Adams / Londale + Tate + #3
    Sign Harty with NT-MLE

    That's 4 in the top 50 = Western Contender
    FVV (27) - Caruso (69)
    Thrilla (134) - Amen (81)
    Himmie / PG (22/20) - Cam (170)
    Bari (138) - Tari (DNQ)
    Sengawd (32) - Harty (42)
