You know what happens to your franchise if you waive a player who ends up being a solid backup PG for years to come?

Absolutely nothing impactful whatsoever.

He could be seen as a good young player who’s undervalued on a good contract and he could be the centerpiece of a deal.

I would kick the tires on a Gay/NAW for Crowder trade. Buyout Crowder or maybe Memphis gets involved and we get Green.

I think we could do a Gay Butler deal… saves Phoenix some dough and everyone needs a Gay Butler.

Seriously though a deal like that where we get Green… Phx maybe gets a couple seconds from Memphis. We waive Green… offload Gays salary and consolidate the roster.

True, Gay/Butler would work. Waive Green or buyout Crowder and there is our 3 roster spots.

I don't think JB has any trade value at all. Its more just a camp flyer at this point.

The appeal in the Suns Gay deal is they would save 7-8M this year between salary and tax. Hopefully they replace some of Crowder's production... and maybe they get some seconds from Memphis. We'd clear some cap space for next year and the cost is only a couple million which we can now take because of the Bojan deal. Then we only need to make one more cut and we would have rid ourselves of a potential distraction and cleared some PT for the young guys.
