I understand why BC would like Diaw, but I think Maggette is a much better fix. He can become the third option that we need while also playing some lock down defense for us. When he came into the NBA he wasn't known for his defense but over the past few seasons Maggettte has really stepped up that part of his game.
If the Suns were to obtain Ford the player I'd like to see head Toronto's way is Barbosa. With Nash, Ford and Barbosa on the same roster it would make for a cluttered backcourt and it would make sense for PHX to deal Barbosa to us.
What about NY? Weren't there talks of David Lee being part of a deal for Ford? That's the player I really liked because he would help us on the glass.
