    Phoenix Suns

    The Phoenix Suns got a couple of protected picks, some chewed bubble gum and daps for Isaiah Thomas, Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe,” HOOP Mag’s Josh Eberley wrote.

    Yep, that about sums this up. The Suns should be thankful to rid themselves of the drama attached to Bledsoe’s absence, and they did get a (low-end) first-round pick out of the deal. But, as Eberley also noted, they most likely gave up more for Brandon Knight than they received in return for Bledsoe, Dragic and Thomas.

    And remember: Phoenix, it seems, had the opportunity to acquire Emmanuel Mudiay, a top-seven prospect, and a lottery pick from the Denver Nuggets prior to last June’s draft, according to’s Chris Haynes. Accepting what (probably) won’t be a lottery choice and an expiring contract now looks buh-ad.

    Greg Monroe

    Here’s hoping Greg Monroe brokers a buyout with the Suns. Otherwise, he’ll have to play or assume sideline duty for one of the NBA’s worst teams upon his return from a calf injury.

    Malcolm Brogdon

    Unless head coach Jason Kidd plans to flat-out run Giannis Antetokounmpo at center, Malcolm Brogdon is out of a starting gig.

    It may not
