    That was kinda the whole debate on jazzfanz. I believe there was a poll of Kanter vs Knight and it was pretty 50/50.

    Your Burks for Marshall idea could work. Then, draft Goodwin to replace Burks and presto!

    I remember Cyrone, but it was more that he just wanted anyone but Kanter than he really wanted Knight, iirc.

    Th burks for Marshall is a sweet idea. I could see the suns going for it. Makes a lot of sense. Goodwin is also a great replacement.

    Karl Malone believes in Burks, so I believe Karl Malone. Malone was right about Millsap and he is Karl Malone. Enough said.

    That said, would I trade Burks for Marshall or Williams, possibly. Marshall could learn alot under the tutelage of Tinsely and Williams under Millsap. I think it would take an additional 1st rounder from Utah for Williams though. Marshall could probably be straight up.

    I think I would rather draft Plumlee to replace Favors/Kanter's bench role (when we upgrade 1 or both of them to starters next year).
    In a few years there will be only five kings in the world -- King Cy and the four kings in a pack of cards.

    ANd yeah, looks like I was probably wrong on Knight. He kind of sucks, but he is also on the Pistons, so who knows.

    Why would the suns do this? Why do so many people think Burks is worth so much on the trade market. Can't shoot cant hit his ft's, and he's a shooting guard!

    The Al Jefferson jazz wouldn't help either, so ya, you were wrong.

    Haven't watched the TWolves this year but why the Williams hate? Is he taking away touches and attention from AK or something?

    No its the fact that he has pretty much played himself out of the rotation as a #2 pick. On a team that has more injuries than any other team in the league. Thats pretty hard to do.
