I was reading all the FanPosts about who we should target and who to get so we don't make the wrong choice and it got me thinking why not go after 2 potential stars instead of just 1. So I came up with this.
Phx gets: Gordon Hayward, Harrison Barnes, Richard Jefferson(expiring)
Utah gets: Emeka Okafor(expiring and insured money), Wiz 14 1st(top 12 protected), LAL's 15 1st(top 5 protected)
GS gets: PJ Tucker, Phx 14 1st, Min 14 1st(top 13 protected)
Why for PHX? Suns get enough firepower to make a strong run in the playoffs and have enough cap space to keep the core of Bledsoe-Hayward-Barnes-Dragic together for at least 4-5 years.
Why for Utah? Their front court is set with Kanter and Favors and Burke is the PG of the future so I don't see them committing to Hayward. They can now go into full tank mode and probably get Jabari or Wiggins. Additionally Okafors contract is insured so who ever holds the contract will be basically paying Okafor the minimum.
Why for GS? They have a large amount of money committed to Lee, Bogut and Curry with Klay next in line for that big extension so I don't see how they can afford him. They get 2 1st round picks in a very deep draft and a vet who can help them on both ends of the floor with pure hustle and energy.They can also resign Tucker for cheap in the off-season
SO WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?
