I'd like to talk about what we seem to be missing as a Suns team this year.
Which players by position does everyone think we should have so we could be a top tier West team this year.
Let's assume that Shaq's contract expired this year and we had the 20 million in our pocket. I believe Our Pg position is set with Nash.the same goes with Sf with Hill and Pf/C with Stoudemire. Of course Wade for Sg and Howard for C are not available. : ) We need to consider the cap as well as the fact that it would not be wise to blow it all on one player!! This post takes place in an ideal dream world where a team would trade for Jason Richardson's ridiculous contract..
Basically to make this easier,the proposition should look like this.
Bench Pg if needed: player x or player y
Sg if needed: player x or player y
Starting Sf or bench Sf if needed: players x or y
Backup Pf: player x or y
Starting C or bench C if needed: players x or y.
Lets not forget that besides this years free agents we could use our cap space to get players that are on contracts but their team might consider trading to us for a second pick. If you want though just put any player you'd liket(not Lebron..)without considering his availability. Do you want Diaw back? Maybe Marion? Would Rasheed Wallace have worked? Maybe Odom would fit nicely?How about getting Josh smith or Jamison? Should we make a play for Scola or Artest? Let's see what you think.
Pg. Ramon Sessions would be great coming of the bench while positioning himself for the future.
Sf/Pf. A versatile player that could slide to the 4. Lamar Odom would have been Ideal,Marion as welll or Batum.
As you see,Joe johnson is the only franchise player i dared to consider. All others,i just believe would be great for us whether or not their teams consider them projects,valuable or overrated and overpriced.
Looking forward to your thoughts everybody.
