I read post on realgm that Danny Ainge is putting together a group to buy pheonix. Don't know if it is true, but it explains the crappy bogey trade. Danny doesn't want pheonix to give away first round picks if he is going to buy the team. But the bogey trade blows.

Link to the realGM thread?
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 pheonix

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.

Yeah, he played there and also coached there a few years.

Thou shalt spell the word "phoenix" P-H-E-O-N-I-X, not P-H-O-E-N-I-X, regardless of what the Oxford English Dictionary tells you
