Phoenix Suns are exploring offers for Jared Dudley, Michael Beasley, and now Marcin Gortat. (Source: Sam Amico)

As I reported Monday, Suns extremely active, willing to trade anyone. Y! Sports now reporting Suns engaged in talks for Grizzlies' Rudy Gay.

We have to get Gortat if we can Keep Bradley IMO . I would hate to lose Sully, but the extra size and shot blocking that Gortat would provide would be more important IMO . Gortat is still relatively young and his contract would expire with KG and PP if we wanted to let him walk and free up a bunch of cap room .  He would be really good with Rondo in the pick and role and another anchor for the Defense.

it would be nice if we could somehow get him without trading either bradley or sully. maybe a package of bass and some first round picks or something.

I just can't give up Sully for him, maybe I'm too much of a homer but I don't think we need a move that big. Plus if we did trade Sully we'd have to include somebody else as there's about a 6 mill difference in Gortat/Sully's contracts

would I trade Sullinger in a package for a star? yes

Gortat is no star...he's an above average center..I'm not sure of the fascination with him on this board like he is some sort of star/savior.

Ainge is riding a line between building for the future and competing now...and trading your quality young assets that could help you in the future for help "now" is not something ainge would/should do IMO

The Suns are looking to dump Gortat's contract. Bass comes with a longer obligation and more money overall on his deal.

I'd love to get Gortat.  He would be great for this team.

But at this point, I wouldn't trade for him unless we could do it without having to give up Bradley or Sullinger.

Giving up one of those guys should only be if the Celtics can get an All-Star caliber player in return.  Since that seems unlikely, I wouldn't move either.

you are filling one hole, but building another one somewhere else(defense on the bench)

the C's are better off making a minor move in getting an improvement over Collins

Phoenix hasnt been right since they let Amare walk for nothing in return..they should have traded him for picks and a young player..if a player said he may not be back (Bosh also) u better trade him!

Considering they were a legit contender in 2009-2010 and took the eventual champion Lakers to 6 games in the WCF (very competitive), I think they probably feel okay about keeping him that year.  That was a really quality playoff run.

Since we've been playing the best ball of the season the past three games, Ainge should be very careful with any deal he makes. With that said, I'd still love to have Gortat on the team but that means KG moves back to PF. Based on what we've seen last season and now, Garnett really excels at the center position at this point in his career.

Lee and Melo plus 1st round pick, Suns are looking to trade him anyway, they get a young, fairly cheap SG who is an instant upgrade to a position of need for them (Lee is lightyears better than Dudeley), a promising prospect in Melo, and a first round pick.

If I'm Phx, I do that, in a heartbeat. If I'm Danny, I pull the trigger ASAP.

Suns also save 1mil in the deal this year and next, add 6mil overall, but get a starting caliber SG for the price.

Agreed. We were an Avery Bradley short from reaching the Finals last season. Okay, okay, maybe a Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox short, too.  ;)
