I'm 52 years old. I'm nobody's alternative account and I barely figured out how to post on the board. Attaching the post is beyond me. But it's still there on the realgm board utah jazz page. If true someone needs to take over for Danny now. He's clearly lost his mind with the bogey trade or he is now working for pheonixLink to the realGM thread?
Yeah, he played there and also coached there a few years.Interesting although not sure about the reliability of the rumor. As I recall Ainge did play a few seasons in Phoenix in the 90's. I was going to ASU at the time and the Suns went to the Finals one of those years. Not sure how DA would have enough capital saved up for any type of ownership unless it's a token % if he takes over as POB? I'm sure he got paid well in Boston as GM and also during his playing days but the money was nowhere near what players are making today.
Regardless DA has basically already done what may be the most difficult job here which was to accumulate as many unprotected picks as possible. As we've recently seen the remaining assets such as JC, Conley, Beas, etc apparently don't have that type of value around the league. Hope he sticks around to finish the job here though.
You know, there was talk that Ryan Smith was wanting to buy the Suns a number of years ago. Maybe all the Jazz's cost-cutting moves is because Ryan is going to buy the Suns and we're going to combine the franchises, get the best players, and then have all teh darft pix.Per google, Danny Ainge's estimated net worth is around $10 million (sounds about right).
The Suns selling price is expected to be around $2 billion.
If that estimated net worth is even close to accurate, the entirety of it would be worth 0.5% ownership stake. I don't think he's leaving the Jazz for that.
