Fanning the Flames Podcast: Tired of the negativity? Join us for some moments of optimism!

Paul and Justin talk about what the Phoenix Suns have done in the past week

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

As we all know, the Phoenix Suns made a flurry of moves before, during, and after this year’s NBA Draft. Those moves, however, have been universally panned by pundits.

But, in typical Podcast of Optimism fashion, we use this episode of Fanning the Flames to explain why Suns Nation needs to R-E-L-A-X, as we discuss each of the moves made by the Suns on draft day:

- trading T.J. Warren to the Pacers

- trading the #6 pick to the Timberwolves in exchange for the #11 pick and Dario Saric

- acquiring Aron Baynes and the #24 pick from the Celtics

- selecting Cam Johnson and Ty Jerome; and

- signing Jalen Lecque.

Also, if you’re coming out to Summer League, we are co-hosting a get together for Suns fans with the guys from The Solar Panel.

The meetup starts at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, at The Still (inside the Mirage).

We hope to see a lot of you there. You can get more information about the meetup and RSVP here.
