Comment Opinions Please. Is This Good? Read The Full Description As All The Trade Details, Draft Picks, & Free Agent Signings Are There.

1. Sign & Trade Deandre Ayton To The San Antonio Spurs For Jakob Poeltl & 2025 CHI 1st(Top 10 Protected)

Why ?: In order to replace Ayton with a solid starting center in Poeltl & gain an extra 1st to use in different deal.

2. Send Torrey Craig & 2025 CHI 1st(Top 10 Protected) To The Oklahoma City Thunder For Kenrich Williams

Why ?: Mainly to shed salary to get comfortably under the luxury line & sign some free agents to minimum deals. Williams is also an upgrade over Craig.

3. Resign Javale McGee Using A Portion Of The MLE To A Two Year Contract Worth $7 Million

Why ?: He’s still a nice rim protector & lob threat at his age.

4. Sign Facundo Campazzo To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum

Why ?: Campazzo would be a nice playmaker off the bench that can provide valuable minutes if CP3 is out for some time with an injury.

5. Sign Gary Harris To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum

Why ?: He’s a solid 3 & D player that can prove to be crucial for the Suns come playoff time.

6. Sign Danuel House To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum

Why ?: Another 3 & D defender who can come off the bench & guard opposing teams better players.

7. Sign Markieff Morris To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum

Why ?: Leadership & Grit mainly. Morris would be a good voice in the locker room & can provide valuable minutes off the bench if called upon.
