The Sun Has Set...or Has It?



With the loss today in San Antonio the Phoenix Suns are officially out of the hunt for the playoffs.  While everyone knew it was only time until it was official that the Suns were out, we still had a glimmer of hope.  Robert Sarver now must sit down and take a look at the team.  Will he want to unload and officially rebuild or will he want to make a trade for a star for one last playoff run for Steve Nash and Grant Hill?  If Sarver takes the rebuilding rout this is what  I believe will be the starting lineup for the Suns next year: PG: Dowdell, SG: Dudley, SF: Warrick, PF: Frye, and C: Gortat.  This lineup could show Sarver who he wants to be the new corner stones of the franchise.  The Suns already have some key players in place to build around, such as Gortat and Frye.  Sarver will need to keep his draft picks and draft young talent to fill the voids.  If Sarver wants to have one last run he must either make a big trade or sign a big name free agent to put in the PF position, which was greatly weakened with the departure of STAT.  The big name the Suns should look at is David West. West is a 6'9" PF currently with the New Orleans Hornets.  Over his career he has averaged 16.4 PPG and 7.3 RPG.  He has also played with Chris Paul who plays very similar to Steve Nash.  While he may not have the explosiveness of Amare he still can average 20 PPG like he has the past few seasons. With West in the line up the rest of the starting line up could look like this: PG: Nash, SG: Dudley, SF: Hill, PF: West, and C: Gortat. With the current pieces we have in place and the addition of West we would easily make the playoffs in the West, and hopefully have a deep run in them.  All we can do is place our trust in the very untrustworthy hands of Robert Sarver and hope he does not kill the team like he has tried to in the past.
