The deal is expected to be finalized and announced Thursday morning.--Paul Coro

You're not disappointed in the least that you got zero basketball talent in return for him?

You didn't get rid of a long term contract (Shaq expires this year), this doesn't put you under the cap so you can get someone else (unless you let Nash go), and it doesn't make your team better. Even if/when you buy Wallace out, he'll still count against your cap for $14M.

All this does is put money in Sarver's pocket.

He won't count against it for the full amount if they buy him out for less than $14M.

I just looked into this and I stand corrected. I thought it just saved the team money, but still impacted the cap the same.

"He had a dog, and his name was BINGO"
Prediction:






Suns will draft Mullens or Tyler Hansbrough.

I'm not watching tonight's draft!
What happened to Amare's spin move? now that was a thing of beauty, but sadly that has deteriorated.....

The Max contract for a one trick pony, with injured knees, eye....the list goes on.
NO thanks C-ya Amare...

You know what Screw it....Suns please Amare to an extension..then we can sit wait for another injury to happen..then we be stuck with another Googs/Marus banks/Hardway/Luc Longley contract.


I love you SARVER!
oh btw the last time the suns rushed into signing amare to a max contract...they found out Amare was hiding his injury. wonder why is pushing for a contract again?

but what ever im done being negative


Get that contract done Suns!
