Saw this tweet on Clutch Fans.

I've seen scant proof that a majestic aura trumps a sound plan, but maybe that's just because I wasn't looking at Phil Jackson... Seth Rosenthal 2014

Suns have cap space as well. So they don't have to send a BS contract back. TJ Warren is almost guranteed to be thrown in due to them drafting Jackson and him being a RFA this offseason and the Knicks probably wanting a 23 yr old SF to go with their core. Warren might have been drafted under JHs tenure as well.

Trade #1 Chriss and Warren would be ideal.
Trade #2 Suns take on Noah with Love and give back Knight, Dudley, & Warren. Edit I would ask for a pick back as well.

I would be willing to take on a bad contract like Knight if they included BOTH miami picks

after watching us hand $71m to Hardaway, and Otto get $100m+, hopefully the league see's Anthony as a bargain!

Would love to help him find a better home, and maybe for us to balance out our roster/cap distribution...

Good take on TJ Warren at a Suns blog: https://www.brightsideofthesun.com/2017/3/25/15046234/phoenix-suns-tj-warren-making-do-without-shooting

Efficient player that needs to work on his shot. 23yrs old so lots of time for upside to materialize.

Patience with the rebuild, keep all the picks, no starphucks, and team-first attitude. Marinate a couple years and we're playing like the '72 team. Championship here we come!

A threeway deal with the Suns would be fantastic- best we could hope for as they have quite a few pieces I'd like. I'd say no to Bender though as he dublicates what we have with KP except is much worse. I'd rather hope for Chriss, who while he has a lot of work to do, at least gives us something different (an athletic PF). Bledsoe I'm not really interested in because I want us to tank.

I'm pretty sure Melo is on holiday with Lebron at the moment (didn't he get photographed at Houston airport on route to where lebron was?), would add weight to the idea of Lebron pushing for this.

I'd maybe even dangle the idea of taking on Knight's contract and Josh Jackson for Love- doubt the Suns would do it, but worth checking out

Bro you can't keep getting my hopes up like this. If this happen though I think we are easily a #6 seed in the east

We already have KP I think a more feasible deal would be for Chriss to go the Cavs and warren bender and knight to NYK with KOQ and Melo to PHX
