The Future

I know that I only ever post about trades. It's a sickness.  However, as fun as this year has been, it leaves me worried about the future.  ESPN consistently puts the Suns in the bottom five in there "future power rankings" http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?page=FuturePowerRankings-6-091215

So yes, I'm proposing a trade.  I did my homework, and I just want to see what everyone else thinks.  It's at least as interesting as a Grizzlies game.

 

The Suns trade: Jason Richardson, Earl Clark and a 2012 #1 pick

The Warrios trade: Raja Bell, Speedy Claxton, Stephon Curry and Anthony Randolph.

I absolutely believe this trade would go through.  Randolph's trade value has plummeted with his sulking and uninspired play, and it's becoming increasingly obvious Curry and Ellis cannot co-exist. 

The Suns finally get good players under the age of 30.  I think Bell and Curry can make up for J-Rich's contribution to the team, and Randolph is just gravy.  Bell and Claxton's contracts come off the books at the end of the year, too, saving the Suns gobs of money, something we all know Sarver would go for. Lastly, who doesn't want Raja back?

J-Rich is a demi-god in the bay area.  They love him there, he was the heart and soul of that team, and he obviously did great in NellieBall.  Earl Clark is a winner for the warriors because of his upside (although I consider him a huge tool, David Thorpe on ESPN consistently ranks Clark with one of the highest upsides of all the rookies.) He is also a perfect fit for NellieBall.  The future number one is consistent with the Sun's drafting policy of late, and helps get the trade done.

 

Honestly, I think this trade makes the Suns better now (once Bell gets back from surgery, he won't take nearly as long to acclimate as a normal mid-season acquisition) and in the future.  Also, the idea that we basically traded Boris Diaw for Dudley, Randolph and Curry makes me smile.

God I hope this happens
