Free Agent Frenzy: Lakers Work Out Beasley (408)

Suns ready to make a deal?

RECOMMEND0COMMENTS0EMAIL

ArizonaSports.com points out this afternoon that the Phoenix Suns, losers of seven straight, could be less than a week away from swinging a deal.

There's no question that this is a rebuilding year for the Suns. The challenge for the team, though, is determining which players to keep and which to deal.

Based on where this organization is right now, it has to be willing to listen to any deal if it means improving the outlook going forward.

While it'd be nice to unload Michael Beasley and the two years plus remaining on his three-year, $18 million deal, that isn't likely. But look for guys like Marcin Gortat, Luis Scola, Shannon Brown and Sebastian Telfair to all be asked about by contending teams.

Sure why not? :man10:

Scola would be a GREAT fit for us next to Howard in a half court set. Nothing but rebounding, mid range shots, and good old fashioned flopping. Nice fit on a nice contract.

But like trodgers said, give me Beasley. Yeah, sure, he's a jerk and probably bad for the locker room over there. But I'd like to run that experiment here if it meant getting Scola.

Artest/Beasley
Scola/Jamison
Howard/Hill

That's bananas.

I thought we were trying to get faster/younger? Scola doesn't fit that one bit, he's probably even slower, less athletic and worse defender then Pau.....as for Beasly, come on now 3 teams now in 5 yrs, its pretty clear doesn't matter where he is, he's gona be a cancer and he's already starting in Pho and is a cancer just imagine what he'll be like coming off the bench again...he wasn't exactly Mr. Team player in Minn doing that.

1. Why would they want Pau?
2. Why would they trade Dragic?
3. What makes the world go round?

No way this happens :man10:

I think the best bet though would be Beasley/Scola for Ebanks/Gasol and ask for one of our picks back.

Scola / Beasley / Dudley

Gortat / Beasley / Dudley

:deal:

It's not even a question in my mind. Phoenix is rebuilding that much is clear, what better way to rebuild than getting a 19 million dollar expiring, sucking this year and getting a top pick and shedding salary in the process? Maybe work Minny in there and send them DWill/Pek and Minny gets Pau.....either way we are upgrading with that trade.

I think Phoenix would probably never want to trade with us again first of all and secondly I don't know if they'd be willing to do all of that for a contract that isn't quite expiring yet.

I could definitely see a Minny 3-Way trade if you wanted to pull it off, but I think I'd rather just take Minny's assets than take on Beasley who has seemingly murdered every locker room he's been in.

:man1: nothing personal khmrP, just wanted to share a chuckle...

If we're giving up Pau for Bargnani, I'd suspect we'll get another starter-level player from a 3rd team. Things to consider in this trade: MDA + Bargnani, Pau + Calderon. So I don't think a Barg/Calderon package would make any sense for either team.

And please NO to any Beasley or Derrick Williams deals. These guys ARE NOT center pieces for a Pau trade. Think about it... they are essentially T-Wolves rejects who have been beaten out by Alexy Schved & Andrei Kirilenko.

In six starts this year during Kyle Lowry's injury, Calderon racked up 11.9 assists and 38.5 minutes per game. He also dropped an impressive 2.5 threes per game during that stretch as well as one steal.

Now if Toronto wanted to give us Kyle Lowry and Bargnani for Gasol, then count me in. Lowry would be the perfect PG for us...and his defense is great.

Why are people considering Pau for Barg and Calderon? Yea Pau isn't that great defensively, but he's miles better than Bargniani, who is about as tough as a marshmallow. We have to deal with Z-bo, David Lee, Biff, Ibaka, Duncan, Faried, Dirk Nowitzki, and potentially Kevin Love out here. If we try to trot Bargniani out there we'll be chewed up and spat out by those guys on the offensive glass and in the paint. Calderon isn't exactly known as a defensive stopper either, that trade makes us worse not better IMO.
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

just asking for more locker room issues, what happens when Nash gets back? Lowry or Nash wont be happy coming off the bench.

just keep pau, and magic is right, if pau is traded this team is going to blow up, we're not going to be competing for the finals this year


and people saying pau and dwight cannot coexist is on crack.

screw the clippers, screw them hard. screw them for having better team chemistry and winning.


god, i remember the days when we we're winning championships and the clippers was fun to watch with eric gordon and blake griffin coming along. i had no problem watching the clippers then.

but now i cant stand to see flop city having a better record than us.
