The Official Offseason Thread for the Phoenix Suns

So apparently the Knicks did the Sign and trade with the Suns as a courtesy to Amare, because Amare didn't want to leave the Suns without them getting something in return.

That was nice of him.

Too bad he's gonna realize it was a mistake to leave when the Knicks have a 34-36 win season and fail to make the playoffs yet again.

Suns To Hire Babby As Head Of Basketball Ops


League sources have said player agent Lon Babby will be the next leader of the Suns' basketball operations, perhaps as a president.

Babby has represented both Hedo Turkoglu and until recently, Childress.


So is it like "Hey, if you can get us Hedo and Childress, we'll put you in charge of our entire organization"?

As Grant Hill's agent, he'd been rumored as a candidate for the GM job - I'm sure his connections to Hedo and Childress didn't hurt his case.

Also, while it's unprecedented, I don't see a huge leap in transitioning from Agent to a GM or President of Bball Ops - both require the ability to juggle player egos while having a knowledge of financial workings, albeit from the opposite end of the spectrum. The question is, does Babby have the foresight and ability to put together a complimentary squad? I guess we'll find out.

Yeah, it's a really interesting move that could theoretically work.

Although trading for two former clients that both play a position that's already filled isn't the most promising start.

While it might work against a few teams, I cringe at the thought of throwing a bunch of small forwards against big front courts such as the one in Portland or LA. Hedo might be 6'10, but I think he'd be giving up way too much weight in most matchups at the 4 spot; hopefully we're still actively pursuing a deal to land us a legit 4.
