Default Steal of the summer- Isaiah Thomas to the Suns

Quote:
Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA 1m
Suns and Kings are finalizing a sign-and-trade deal on a four-year, $27M contract for Isaiah Thomas, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
So the Suns either didn't want to pay Bledsoe max type money, or they're afraid of his knee problems(same knee issue as DWade), or both.

Either way, fantastic value for Thomas. Him and Dragic together is going to be so awesome to watch.

If they're able to sign and trade Bledsoe, then this worked out beautifully for them, getting back Thomas as a replacement, and value back for Bledsoe.

Also I'm not saying Bledsoe is going to be in the deal, I'm saying once he figures out his next destination, they can sign and trade him there potentially.

great full-scale replacement for Bledsoe for half the price,

They have spare picks....or maybe Ennis?

Why the fuck is Sac not matching? That's what I want to know. It seems like the Kings could have locked up Thomas at reasonable price for 4 years. That organization is so weird.

That's a crazy cheap deal.... holy crap. He's basically masking Vasquez money + 2 more years!

not sure dragic + thomas will cut it defensively, both give up a ton of size (if dragic defends 2s).

either way, I'm shocked the kings don't match that offer, unless they're getting enis or bledsoe in return.

I don't like Thomas or Bledsoe. And I don't like the thread title. LBJ is the steal of the summer. :|

Assuming they're replacing Bledsoe, how is it not a great deal getting Thomas at near half the price? Thomas' production offensively is arguably better.

It'll be interesting to see what they do next, as the rest of their roster is really incomplete in terms of their frontcourt.

Alex Kennedy ‏@AlexKennedyNBA 1m
Isaiah Thomas to the Suns doesn't mean they're moving on from Eric Bledsoe. They want to add Thomas behind Bledsoe/Goran Dragic backcourt.

Yeah this is weird. I see the idea behind having all 3, because you'd have the most potent backcourt rotation in the NBA, but then why draft Ennis?

I'd guess that PHX really wanted to get value for their pick from Masai, so they drafted Ennis, and when Masai told them to fuck off, PHX was stuck with him. Ennis is probably going to be moved if they're planning on using Thomas as a 6th man, because there would be 0 minutes for Ennis, with Green still in PHX.

If their backcourt is Thomas and dragic, they are going to get murdered defensively.
